This weeks Sunday Post: Simplicity
“In the West we have a tendency to be profit-oriented, where everything is measured according to the results and we get caught up in being more and more active to generate results. In the East — especially in India — I find that people are more content to just be, to just sit around under a banyan tree for half a day chatting to each other. We Westerners would probably call that wasting time. But there is value to it. Being with someone, listening without a clock and without anticipation of results, teaches us about love. The success of love is in the loving — it is not in the result of loving. ”
― Mother Teresa, A Simple Path: Mother Teresa
I found this quote and I thought “I don’t think that’s a waste of time” but then that might explain why I am in the economic class that I am in. I looked through my pictures to find some of us sitting under trees but found none. Oh well, picnic shelters are kind of like trees; besides the most important part of that quote is The success of love is in the loving and that I do have pictures of.
