THE SUCCESSFUL PARADOX
So often in modern life we are judged by our successes, whether that be in sport, our job, our career, our relationships etc. The impetus and cultural 'message' is to ' Seek Success'.
The same message is often given to ,or taken on by, the Spiritual Seeker.
However, the wisdom of the sages reminds us that there is a strange paradox to success. The more one seeks it the less likely one is to find it.
This paradox is eloquently shared by Viktor Frankl in his great work - Man’s Search for Meaning. and an excerpt is shown below. However, to follow his advice takes patience and a great deal of humility!
