Be A Lion, Not A Dog

Author: Unknown

Dada Vaswani when he was a small boy saw a monk sitting near and asked him to give him some wisdom.

The monk advised “My child, Be a Lion, not a dog.”

“What does that mean? would you please explain?” inquired Dada.

“When you throw a ball in front of the dog, it will run after the ball. When you throw something at the Lion its attention is still on you, not on the object you throw. It will be waiting to grab hold of you.

“Always focus on the source, not the incidents, not the effects. Go to the source.”
