There are so many cool definitions of enlightenment. One of them is the ability to live blissfully detached from the outcome. How does that work? Blissful detachment from any outcome? Almost sounds like complacency or apathy. But it isn’t. It’s at the opposite end of the power spectrum from those.

1. Absolute commitment to cause.
2. Total surrender to outcome.
They invest 100% of their efforts into creating the vision, and then they accept everything that unfolds with pure gratitude and enthusiasm.
It’s a powerful discipline to adopt.
