whole problem is whether you can live without any
choice. Whatever comes, enjoy it. When it goes and
something else comes, enjoy it. Day is beautiful,
but night is beautiful in its own way -- why not
enjoy both? And you can enjoy both only if you are
not attached to one.
So only a choiceless person squeezes the juice of
life in its totality. He is never miserable. Whatever
happens he finds a way to enjoy it. And this is the
whole art of life, to find a way to enjoy it. But
the basic condition has to be remembered: be choiceless.
And you can be choiceless only if you are alert,
aware, watchful; otherwise you are going to fall
So choicelessness and awareness have different meanings
in the dictionary, but not in existence. They have
the same meaning. Either be choiceless or be aware
-- it is the same thing. Then you can enjoy everything.
When success comes you can enjoy it; when failure
comes you can enjoy it. When you are healthy, you
can enjoy it; when you are sick you can enjoy it
-- because you don't have any attachment to anything.
You have not put your life into anything -- your
life is free movement, moving with time, moving with
the wheel of existence, keeping pace, never lagging
Life certainly is an art, the greatest art. And the
shortest formula is CHOICELESS
AWARENESS -- applicable
to all situations, all problems.
