A Quiet Conversation With A Young Prince - Siddha Performance
Me: Your suffering does not come from conquest. Your suffering comes from the significance that you attach to it.

You: Do you not believe conquest to be significant?

Me: Tell me, young prince. If you do not conquer, will you one day die?

You: Yes.

Me: If you succeed in conquering, will you one day die?

You: Yes.

Me: Then how can there be any significance?


Me: My dear prince, the bliss is in the conquering. Suffering is in the “having conquered.”

You: No significance.

Me: Indeed, young prince . . . Indeed.

Your Quiet Journey To The End Of The Earth - Siddha Performance
as I sit back and look at my life, I realize what a fool I have been. I have accepted my life as a drama of events in which I play the lead role. And I have surrendered my equanimity to the fickle hand of circumstance.

I will do that no longer. For I have finally glimpsed the strings behind the stage. It is all a grand drama. A glorious, life-sized play. It unfolds before my eyes. I can watch it and enjoy. But I no longer need to be a part of it.
