Joy vs Excellence

About children, the most fantabulous aspect is that they’re totally aligned with their joy..

Bubbles, butterflies, jumping in the muddy puddle.. they do stuff cuz they derive joy out of it ..

My son pretends to play a variety of instruments, none with an intention of mastering the knowledge 🙂 lol

He does it because he feels joyful as his hands beat the tabla or he pretends to play the fake flute..

He loves the idea of it!!

We as kids knew it! What happened then?

We grew up? The faulty adults pushed us into believing we wouldn’t be good enough till we excelled at it??

Complete rubbish!!

Look at prodigys or famous people who have mastered art without learning it!! They simply followed their joy, with a leap of faith that appeared as if they were ‘gifted’..

Of course they were gifted in their relentless belief of the joy they pursued, without an iota of doubt!! N yes, that does make them gifted as compared to the ones who modified themselves to be un’gifted’

When we pursue our joys with doubts, they seem to block the flow of our gifts!!

Pursue the joy simply n forget about everything else!! There, we are all masters ♥️
