No Rush

An old Buddhist is approached by a keen young man, “ Sir,” he says, “If I study hard, how long might it be till I achieve enlightenment?”

The old man replies, “Oh, about 20 years or so.”

That long?”, the young man seems disappointed, “But, what if I study really, really hard?”

The old man smiled, “I’d say around 30 to 40 years.”

The young man’s eyes widened, “What? Well, what if I devoted myself totally, 24/7, to study and practice and meditation?”

The old man sighed, “In that case, about one hundred years.”

The young man starting to get cross, “One hundr… Are you kidding me? Every time I say I’ll work even harder, you increase your estimate! How can that make sense?”

The old man gently places a hand on the young man’s shoulder, “Because, the more you are fixated and obsessed about that one goal, the longer it will take you to achieve it.”
