Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai
Laiyi Center, Formosa, January 31, 1993
(Originally in Chinese)
Sometimes our fellow initiates don't want to continue their business anymore after they have practiced for a while; they have no more desire for fame and wealth. However, since we are already in the business, we should fulfill our obligations. Although we no longer do business with the "life-and-death" spirit as before, we can do it even better and in a more relaxed manner than before. The reason is that previously, we were so concentrated on the tussle that we were blind and were not smart. When a person is nervous, busy and keen in struggling and fighting, he does things badly. It is the same with any work.
On the contrary, as we don't want to do it now, we just do it casually; but the results are even better. The logic is very simple. Since we are mentally relaxed and we don't have the intense fighting spirit (for fame and profit), our wisdom and intelligence will suddenly and naturally emerge. Therefore, the more relaxed we are, the better we can do our work.
