Otsimisest ja leidmisest. About seeking and finding

gq.com/story
Kui keegi otsib, siis võib kergesti juhtuda, et ta silm märkab vaid seda, mida ta otsib, ja ta on võimetu midagi leidma, midagi vastu võtma, kuna ta mõtleb üksnes otsitavale, kuna tal on eesmärk, kuna ta on eesmärgist haaratud. 
Otsida tähendab eesmärki omada. 
Leida seevastu tähendab olla vaba, olla avatud, ilma eesmärgita. 
Sina oled vist tõepoolest otsija, kui oma eesmärgi poole püüdes ei näe sa mõndagi, mis toimub otse su silme all.

When someone seeks, then it easily happens that his eyes see only the thing that he seeks, and he is able to find nothing, to take in nothing because he always thinks only about the thing he is seeking, because he has one goal, because he is obsessed with his goal. 
Seeking means: having a goal. 
But finding means: being free, being open, having no goal. 
You are perhaps indeed a seeker, for in striving towards your goal, if you do not see many things that are under your nose.


/Hermann Hesse, "Siddhartha"/
