UN : Sometimes, I feel under-recognized.
The Buddhas : We recognize you.
UN : Thank you.
The Buddhas : It’s ok to not blare one’s trumpet. You’re doing great.
UN : Then why these pangs?
The Buddhas : What will you get from worldly recognition? Tell us that.
UN : Nothing, I see that. I can’t carry it forward.
The Buddhas : So drop it and move on.
UN : My work is all so hidden. I’m busy all day. However, nobody sees what I do.
The Buddhas : Are you in it for the joy of doing, or for showing others that you do and what you do?
UN : I enjoy what I do. I’m thankful for it. Sometimes, I wish to show it.
The Buddhas : It’s a question of critical mass.
UN : Meaning?
The Buddhas : Once good, meaningful work reaches beyond critical mass, the Universe is compelled to show it to as many as possible.
UN : And since i’m already…
The Buddhas : …doing good, meaningful work,… …, yes.
UN : I see.
The Buddhas : However, your focus must remain on your good, meaningful work.
UN : You mean the showing part is just a side-effect as far as I’m concerned?
The Buddhas : When you start focusing on the showing part, your good, meaningful work suffers.
UN : For lack of focus?
The Buddhas : Amongst other things. You do have an outlet, and are already using it to the max, btw.
UN : Outlet?
The Buddhas : As in pressure-cooker safety-hatch for any frustration.
UN : Chanting?
The Buddhas : Yeah, let it all out. Translate any frustration into intensity, length, stamina and output while chanting.
UN : As in shake the universe till it shakes.
The Buddhas : Yeah, shake it and make it…
UN : …show my work?
The Buddhas : And then don’t forget to keep your focus anchored on your good meaningful work.
UN : 🙂
The Buddhas : 🙂
