One’s greatest achievement is selflessness and a life lived in the service of other sentient beings.
Do not be attached to the idea of fame or fortune – it is as temporary as a snowflake in a fire. Act without expectation whatever one is doing. Notice how the sun shines brightly 24/7 and yet it expects nothing from the earth or moon. It simply exists unconditionally as it is – generating light so that all life may live in abundance and prosperity. Give what one’s mind-body seeks in life and it will be returned to one as surely as the tides comes in and the sun rises in the morning.
