Don’t corrupt your spirit

It seems to me surely that everyone is seeking for something in the life even if it might be in a different way. However, the first time I heard the view that “ people shouldn’t seek anything in their life”.

I recently have the honor to have a conversation with one of my professor, who is a respectable and influential doctor in anesthesia and intensive care, and has significant influence on my study.

Honestly, I feel the day that somehow I was too arrogant to ask my professor the question that supposed is not my position as a student to ask. 

“ Professor, apparently you have achieved what as a doctor is looking for in the professional career and certainly with decent payment as a reward. So, in your current position, what are you seeking for your life?”

Luckily I wasn’t blamed and surprisingly it is the first time I heard the different view about the term of " seek".  It is ashamed.

Professor said, " en, the term of “seek” isn’t right. Why do you want to seek something for your life? Money, it will never be enough; power, there is always someone there who have higher position than you.  I am a doctor, I just keep doing my job, either saving people’s lives or cure their diseases, even just release their torture either physically or mentally.  In effect, it is a simple thing.  As long as I think I am doing the thing right, keep a peace mind inside, then I feel happy. Happiness is not about money and power, is something inside of you and you will never lose"

 I said, “ but we need to have a driving force as a motivation to force ourselves to work hard and then to achieve something in our life. That diving force certainly can be regarded as a desire ” 

 Professor said, “the driving force come from yourself. Just like riding the horse you are that one holding the power to control the direction. When you do things with your desire that will corrupt your spirit, on the contrary, if you keep pure spirit inside without any desire, in effect, anything you want actually will come along naturally even flow over to you. The most important is, people have more desire and also they will have more fear”  

 I said, “ yes, I think all people have fear, such as people are afraid of losing loved one, of having a failure and death. People always have fear, that is quite common thing”.

 Professor said, “ People should free of fear. Why we are afraid of thing that you may not be able to control? Let’s think, children grow up and then they will go away from you; parents get older and will die, or the loved one suffer from incurable disease.  Indeed all of us will have experienced a failure that is natural order, and all of us will die that is the recycle of the life. In reality, at the end of day, people always have problem with will, why do we need to bother to write the will? If we look after people who we have loved and cared for when we are alive, and then why we should worry about them when we are not there for them? Surely, they will look after themselves”

 I cant express my feeling of appreciation by taking the professor’s valuable time to ask such irrelevant question but that did impress as well as inspire me. In effect, I think I have just had a life lessons from the professor and would like to share my happiness with people. The only one thing, I hope I have a chance to ask the professor when he has the belief “ do thing with pure spirit without being corrected” and in what circumstance. I am always interested in people’s life experiences and try to find out how they interpret their lives, and what consequence will follow.
