High standards are fine…..
but I’m an anthropologist.
a spiritual warrioress.
I can read all the enthnographies in print, go to all the wats in Thailand…. but at the end of the day, I am just a person and need to be with the people. We all need to just be with the people around us.
I aim to beam light to all, and therefore cannot afford to alienate or be alienated. I am not perfect. I do not need to see exceptional results to be satisfied with myself, others. Perfection exists in everything right now as it stands. Really. And if need be, it is well within your power to change your vantage point in order to more easily see some perfection.
Yes, work hard — but work does not = success. Work is a part of life, a blessing — and should be treated as such. You are providing a service to the universe through your work, whether volunteer or compensated. It is thus a holy action.
Right now I am going to relax, partake in some fruit tea from my new Thai friends who are in fact providing me with a tea service, and enjoy this moment for its complete and total excellency :)
