Our success-oriented society is hard to withstand. Hardly anyone wants to be a looser. But what factors bring success – hard work? luck? connections? all of them together? or it is something else?
In the yogic life there is a concept of “detachment”- and this is something which opposes the modern logic. Detachment means ” not to desire” something, just go with the flow…Not to persist on something, not to try to reach anything… just do whatever the life/God/destiny wants you to do…
People who know me distantly are all sure I am a typical career-woman (! :)) and therefore successful. People who know me closer understand, that it is not the case. I never wanted any success, because it seems so funny to me. But surprisingly, I keep getting interesting offers, positions, awards, rewards, etc….I dont really care, I just love to do what I am doing. And the success accompanies me on its own. That makes me smile
So shall we actually strive for success or will it come out of our detachment?
