This morning's reading in Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth confirmed what I learned from my experiences over the weekend.
"As you become present and thereby total in what you do, your actions become charged with spiritual power... Your primary purpose is now to enable consciousness to flow into what you do.
... The world will tell you that success is achieving what you set out to do. It will tell you that success is winning, that finding recognition and/or prosperity are essential ingredients in any success...
The conventional notion of success is concerned with the outcome of what you do. Some say that success is the result of a combination of hard work and luck, or determination and talent, or being in the right place at the right time. While any of these may be determinants of success, they are not its essence.
What the world doesn't tell you -- because it doesn't know -- is that you cannot become successful. You can only be successful... When doing becomes infused with the timeless quality of Being, that is success."
