Why don’t you have a huge love affair?

All these things are needed for you to have a fruitful life. Why don’t you just fall in love with the whole situation? As long as you wish to be in that situation, make it happen like a huge love affair. Why not? That’s how it should be. Only then work becomes effortless. What is it you’re calling a love affair? It’s unconditional involvement and doing whatever is needed. If you don’t have that sense of involvement, you will always try to get the best deal out of somebody. That means you must meet the dumbest people in the world.Intelligent people will never bite your dumb deals.

There once was this almost confirmed bachelor who for months had been pursuing an attractive lady and became her most devoted admirer. At long last he collected sufficient courage to ask her the most momentous of all questions. “There are quite a lot of advantages to being a bachelor,” he began, “but there comes a time when one longs for the companionship of another being. A being who will regard one as perfect, as an idol to be worshiped and treated as one’s absolute own, who will be kind and faithful when times are tough and hard, who will share one’s joys and sorrows.” To his delight he saw a sympathetic gleam in her eyes. She nodded in agreement and then said, “I think it’s a great idea! Can I help you choose which puppy to buy?”
