The passage is beautiful, today i understood what made Gandhiji so popular and obeyed, it was his unshaken selfless committment.
Earlier, I was doing things for gaining appreciation, success etc. however from last 1 year or so (due to more reading and interaction with CF group) i have had a shift in focus. It is about giving in many cases. I have seen this shift has enabled me to work more, remain happy without worrying about what i get, gain more respect and listening and remain focused and clear with confidence in most situations. This indeed is very powerful as i experienced first hand from my little day to day committments. It gives true happiness and self-truse is enhanced to a great degree.
Thankyou so much for posting this, as this small passage has great motivation embedded.
