Hanswolfgang, I didnt get the offer as you predicted
I didnt get the offer as you predicted. Have they offered the position to someone else? Should I still pursue this opportunity? If so, what day (calendar date) can I expect the offer from them? Thanks
Have they offered the position to someone else? No.
Should I still pursue this opportunity? No.
But this whole society, this crowd, these people
stimulate your inner desire. From the very childhood
desire is taught, ambition is taught. The father wants
the child to become something -- to earn money, to get
power, respect, fame... make the family name shine
brilliantly -- and desire has caught you. When we
send young children to school, we are sending them to
get initiated into desire. For twenty-five years, one
third of life, we teach people ambition. How you can be
first, how you can leave others behind. No matter what
price you have to pay, even if life itself is lost in
this race, but keep racing ahead... If you're going to
die, get ahead, then die. Don't lag behind.
Consider Jesus' statement: Blessed are those who are
last, as they will be first in my kingdom of god; and
those who are first will be the last.
