DOING FOR THE THING ITSELF
“We should work like the rain. The rain just falls. It doesn’t ask, am I making a nice sound down below? Or, will the plants be glad to see me? Will they be grateful? The rain just falls, one raindrop after another. Millons and billions of raindrops, only falling. This is the open secret of Zen.”
The rain just falls. And it doesn’t stop. We should strive to work like the rain. If you feel you are doing good positive work. Don’t wait for others to give you permission. Continue to do your work well. This passage was taken from the book, No Beginning, No End, by author Jakusho Kwong.
