The man thinking he could do better then asked . " oh master what if I meditated for eight hours a day . How long would it take ?"
The Master looked at him and said . " if you meditate for eight hours perhaps you will transcend in 20 years . ."
" But why will it take me longer if I meditate more "' the man asked .
The Master replied " You are not here to sacrifice your joy or your life . You are here to live , to be happy and to love . If you can do your best in two hours of meditation , but you spend 8 instead , you will only grow tired , miss the point , and you won't enjoy your life . Do your best , and perhaps you will learn that no matter how long you meditate , you can live , love , and be happy . �� from the four agreements . Always do your best !
Thanks for this, erfra.

She cant get across because the bridge has been washed away. Without hesitating, one of the monks picks her up and carries her to the other side. Then the monks continue on their way. After some time, the second monk turns to his companion and says, How could you have done that? How could you have picked her up and broken your vow of chastity? How could you have felt her soft skin against your face? The first monk is a little surprised by his friend, and says, I let her go back there. Why do you still carry her?
Thanks, Let, for this lesson
