What you are doing doesn’t matter…
Why you are doing it – will decide the quality of your life and your well being in the years to come …
Yesterday morning I had gone for my walk as usual and am always amazed at the beauty of nature and the peace and serenity of the mornings. Am sharing a few pics of the sun rise, taken within 5-7 minutes from different points of my walk.
When I was walking I crossed many people coming for their yoga class. Yoga is a divine word : Meaning union with God but unfortunately it is used so loosely now for physical fitness☺️ Physical fitness is so important but is a tiny subset of Yoga System, taught by sage Patanjali.
I saw many of them – young and not so young, males and females; thin and fat and very fat. And I was wondering why are they here? What would they be looking for? And all of a sudden I remembered my father and had a hearty laugh 😂 : A few decades back he used to visit us often in New Delhi and would go to the nearby park, many a morning and evening. One day he came back and commented in : I have been seeing these ladies for years; the fat ones are still fat and the slim ones still slim. I wonder why they keep running around 😎😂
Yes, it doesn’t matter what you are doing. What matters is : Why.
Are you doing it to look great and to hear wows ! What figure !!
Are you doing it to remain fit?
Are you doing it lose weight?
Are you worried about your future, who will look after you if you are sick and old?
Are you doing it to remain healthy so that you can sit longer for meditation and communion with God?
Why? Why ? Why?
And this applies to whether you are a teacher, a lawyer, an architect, engineer or doctor or an office clerk; or a blogger ….
It is not that What is not important; the Why is much much more so ….
Q : Why are you doing What you are doing?
