Relaxation and Ambition


“…I was afraid I would lose my ambition if I relaxed.”

Hiroko Masuike, NY Times editor and photographer

“I have no ambition.”

Byron Katie, American speaker and author


Spiritual teachers (Daas, Tolle, Katie and others) emphasize the importance of being “present” in the moment over future goals. Sure, it’s fine to want something and to work towards it, but that is secondary to being present.

My favorite Katie quote, “So you think you want xyz and then you will be happy. Why not skip that step and just be happy?”
