Description

..This happens to people who become possessive: They don't use things, they are used by things. They are not masters, they are servants of their own things. They go on accumulating and they die without ever having enjoyed all that they had. Live in joy, without possessions, like the shining ones. Live like the buddhas, who don't possess a thing but can use everything. The world has to be used, not possessed. We come empty-handed and we go empty-handed, so there is no point in possessing anything. To be possessive is ugly. But use everything! While you are alive, use the world; enjoy everything the world makes available and then go without looking back, without clinging to things. The intelligent person uses life and uses it beautifully, aesthetically, sensitively. Then the world has many treasures for him. He never becomes attached, because the moment you become attached you have fallen asleep. The winner sows hatred because the loser suffers. Let go of winning and losing and find joy. How to find joy? Let your ambition disappear; ambition is the barrier. Ambition means an ego trip: "I want to be this, I want to be that—more money, more power, more prestige." But remember, The winner sows hatred because the loser suffers. Let go of winning and losing and find joy. If you want to find joy, forget about winning and losing. Life is a play, a game. Play it beautifully, forget all about losing and winning. The real sportsman's spirit is not that of winning or losing, that is not his real concern. He enjoys playing. That is the real player. If you are playing to win, you will play with tension, anxiety. You are not concerned with the play itself, its joy and its mystery; you are more concerned with the outcome. This is not the right way to live in the world. Live in the world without any idea of what is going to happen. Whether you are going to be a winner or a loser, it doesn't matter. Death takes everything away. Whether you lose or win is immaterial. The only thing that matters, and it has always been so, is HOW you played the game. Did you enjoy it?—the game itself? Then each moment is a moment of joy.
