Life is like playing the guitar, so you’ll want to stick at it.
Both in life and the guitar, no one’s got it figured out straight away, not even the Buddha. Just remember that it takes a lot of time to get really good.
When it comes to patience this guy takes the biscuit, he went for years and years, just sitting and thinking. Born a prince, sheltered from the world outside, one day the Buddha left the palace and his worldly goods behind to think about what it all meant. Respect!
He probably got frustrated at times -especially when cramp set in- not knowing what one day he would become.
But he stuck with it until one day, sitting under the Bodhi tree he realised the truth about well, we’re not sure exactly, otherwise we’d probably be doing the same thing. But it must have been a big deal because there are gold statues of him all over.
It may not seem like you’re moving but those small sessions are gonna have a big impact one day. You think Slash rocked out Sweet Child o’ Mine on his first day, nah a lot of time went into becoming a guitar legend and now we all know his name, just like Buddha.
So pick up that guitar, space out and lose yourself in the music. Whether or not you’ll end up a rock legend we can’t say but you’ll definitely rock in the long term. Namaste.
