Remain in the world, act in the world,Osho, The Secret of Secrets
do whatsoever is needful, and yet
remain transcendental, aloof,
detached, a lotus flower in the pond.
Like a silkworm weaving her house with love from her marrow, and dying in her body's threads winding tight, round and round, I burn desiring what the heart desires. Cut through, O Lord, my heart's greed, and show me your way out, O Lord white as jasmine - Akka Mahadevi
Akka Mahadevi ಅಕ್ಕ ಮಹಾದೇವಿ (c.1130–1160) was one of the early female poets of the Kannada literature and a prominent person in the Lingayat dharma in the 12th century.
“Low self-confidence isn’t a life sentence. Self-confidence can be learned, practiced, and mastered–just like any other skill. Once you master it, everything in your life will change for the better.” – Bruce Lee
