Mission or Joyride
D-Day is an event worthy of your attention for its audacity, mission, and collective purpose.
Are you on a joyride or a mission? There is no right or wrong answer. You must fill in the backstory to your life’s meaning and purpose—your dharma.
There is only one way to stop a person on a mission. Kill him/her. If this sounds drastic, it is. Without a mission, a person wanders, wonders, and wastes the gifts—aimless in a land of plenty.
Look into the mirror and see yourself naked for the first time; drop the false masks of personality and pretense, and embrace the miracle of your existence. This is the road to original work.
What if your mission is to wander and wonder? What then?
Each situation is unique. If a person’s dharma is to wander and wonder, he might be a sadhu—but only he would know the truth of it.
Live your mission, not the life of someone else.
