Gurdas Mann, the divinely blessed, speaking out poigantly about our society.
Elizabeth Gilbert introduces a perspective to deal with the fear of failure of ones ‘creativity and genius’. She presents forth the idea that you should not consider yourself to be a genius , rather you should think of it as – whenever you achieve something exemplary/extraordinary/outrageous, a genius(someone distant or someone unknown) manifests in you at that point of time. So, while you are merely performing your regular duty the genius in you at that time catapults your performance to astonishing levels making it exemplary, superb and extraordinary.
In summary, just keep doing what you love – with dedication and devotion without any fear of failure. Leave success and failure for ‘that distant unknown Genius’ to worry about.
The same theme has already been immortalised by Kabir Sahib and is inscribed in Guru Granth Sahib.
“Kabeer Maera mujh maein kich nahi
jo kich hai so tera”
(Kabeer nothing is mine within myself
Whatever there is, is Yours, O Lord! )
Over to you now Ms Elizabeth Gilbert…..
Beautiful Song with wonderful Lyrics.
The artist here presents his views on how to tackle poverty and he also shows how corporates tend to play with the minds of its consumers on pretext of doing charity.
Mainu shahi nai chahidi
o rab sohniya
Min ta izzat da tukkar mandga haan
(I do not want glory, dear God, I want a decent meal)
