You are living in competition-that will create tension. You are living in continuous comparison-that will create tension. You are always thinking either of the past or of the future, and missing the present which is the only reality-that will create tension. It is a question of simple understanding; there is no need of any competition with anybody. You are yourself, This is the way existence wants you to be. Some trees are taller; some trees are smaller. But the smaller trees are not tense-neither are the taller trees full of ego. Existence needs variety. Somebody is stronger than you; somebody is more intelligent than you-but in something, you also must be more talented than anybody else. Just find your own talent. Nature never sends any single individual without some unique gift. Just a little search.... perhaps you can play on the flute better than the president of the country can be a president- you are a better flautist than he is a president.
The Hidden Splendour.
