U can buy an elephant, but not feed him everyday!

Post by TruthSeeker on Wed Sep 04, 2013 12:37 am

U can buy a $1M home, but find it hard to take care of the big lawn, and so on.

U can reach stardom, but find it hard to sustain the position.

Its not about "achieving" but about "sustaining".

Once a human reaches the top, the downfall is inevitable.

Its as if the success is like a ball thrown in air, it can only last at the top till gravity pulls it back.

Even youth has to come down with age.

Why am I saying all this?

Because, life is not about achievement but about its sustenance; just like our relationships are not about an "achievement" but about their sustenance. Our beliefs. Our health. Our wealth. 

U can buy an elephant, but not feed him everyday!

Thoughts?

Nice thought. What's the point in achieving anything in life if one can't sustain it. Just be a bottom level zero, coz that's something easy enough to sustain through the life.

>>>Also, I am unclear on why an elephant is being touted as one of the choices for a pet. Why not just a dog or a hamster or something?

@Muralidhaari - No need to advise me on personal level, please focus on the post.

@Vidya - To achieve "Zero" State of mind has been the goal of lots of yogis. Silence of mind is what brings one closer to God. Not restlessness. Zero is not the bottom, but the equilibrium. Almost all of us live in a negative (sad) or positive (happy) state. Zero is what we lack!

Regards,
TS.
