Why not?

“Some  men see things as they are and say : “Why?” .

I dream of things that never were and say “Why not?”

George Bernard Shaw

George Bernard Shaw was born on July 26, 1856 in Dublin, Ireland and died on November 2,1950 in Ayot St. Lawrence, Hertfordshire, England. He was a playwright, essayist, novelist, short-story writer, critic and political activist. He focussed on social problems, marriage, religion, government, health care and class privilege. He was the co-founder of the London School of Economics and Political Science. He was the only person to have been awarded both the Nobel Prize in Literature (1925) and an Oscar (1938) for his contributions to literature and the adaptation of his play Pigmalion to the film of the same name. He accepted the Nobel Prize as a tribute to Ireland but rejected the monetary award, requesting that it be used to finance translation of Swedish books into English. Pigmalion is a witty study of phonetics as well as a clever treatment of middle-class morality and class distinction which proved to be one of Shaw’s greatest  successes on stage. It is a combination or the dramatic, the comic and the social corrective that gives Shaw’s comedies their special flavour.

Your choice

“Wherever you are, be there totally.

If you find your “here and now” intolerable

and it makes you unhappy, 

you have three options:

remove yourself from the situation, change it or accept it totally.

If you want to take responsibility for your life, 

you must choose one of those three options and you must choose now. 

Then accept the consequences.”

“Invitation to look within”

“I am inviting you to go deeper, to learn and practice so that you become someone who has a great capacity for being solid, calm and without fear, because our society  needs people like you who have these qualities. And your children, our children need people like you, in order to go on, in order to become solid and calm and without fear.”

 

Thich Nhat Hanh

 

 

Commentary

 

Look within yourself to discover that these qualities are already yours. Dive within and find this depth in you. It is a silent work and the only requirement is a burning desire for TRUTH. Know that if the desire is authentic and permanent one finds the way. You must pay attention WITHIN. ONLY PAY ATTENTION. No money or knowledge or information or time are required. Only  your ATTENTION now, you must be present, here and now.

 

Know that evenness of mind is only found within. BE solid, calm and fearless.

It means I accept and deal with whatever comes

\r\n

 because I know that :

\r\n

HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE.”
