If we have to ask, the answer is no.

If we ask and the answer is yes?



Then it wasn’t much of a difference. We had to ask someone to apply their attention. Their attention wasn't caught in the first place. And if it was, it’s telling that the difference didn’t spur a comment on it’s own...

Why do we even ask?







We want Reassurance.

Why do we need reassurance? What’s the root of that empty hug?

If our practice is strong enough, if our work is dedicated, if our effort is honest and thorough, if our eye is on the prize, then the question does not even arise in the mind.

If we feel the need to ask. Perhaps we are already losing focus on the project.




Work speaks for itself.
