Success is not Isolated#124

Go out and get an education so you can be a success in life.  What a mouthful and a challenge for a mind following this false path. This is not criticism, but is not "success" an illusion if we are not sharing in its making?  How is there such a thing on an isolated basis?
We say, 'Go get it and be happy'.  On this path, to have something, it must be taken, even if given to you, it must first be taken from somewhere.  Is a Movie Star a success because they are popular and people are taking pictures of them?  Is that success; to be seen different than others, isolated?  Look at the successful, are they without worry and sorrow?  Sure, they have the financial resources to meet superficial needs and requirements, but success?  This false success is at our expense, literally, but clearly this is not the success I'm referring to.
  • Success is not taking or reaching the top of anything because it is not external or superficial.  No, this is not the success we aspire to be.  Is that not why you are reading this because you are still searching?  Because you are still curious as the mind is open, expanding, wondering, aware and observant.  You will never settle on the commercial idea or image of success.  
  • You see a deeper and everlasting success as a human that needs no perfecting.  This is why you are hear...to wonder, to find out, to flower your wisdom which has presented you with a depth unlike ever imagine within the limitation of traditional success.  
  • No job, car, real estate, beautiful girl or boy will ever do success proper like the success of intelligence, requiring no taking, and contains no sorrow or false dreams. www.eckharttolle.com
