The Master In the Art of Living

Jonathan Mead, of Illuminated Mind shared this in his Trailblazer Group. I am sharing this with you, because if even a half of world's population can live like this, our world would be far better for it.

The master in the art of living
draws no sharp distinction between
his labor and his leisure,
his mind and his body,
his work and his play,
his education and his recreation.

He hardly knows which.

He simply pursues his vision of excellence
through whatever he is doing
and leaves others to determine
whether he is working or playing.

To himself, he is always doing both.

- James A. Michener


  1. Hi Dolly,
    I really liked reading this. It sounds like the message is to become boundless in how we live and what we do.

  2. Precisely :-) And also to blend work with living, so that you are enjoying your whole life, instead of waiting for weekends to arrive.

  3. Hi Dolly! I have a little blog award for you :) You can find out all about it on my blog and see what you need to do with it.
