Harold Byne says that our life offers two choices. We can live scurrying for survival or we can soar to unlimited heights. He explains it citing examples of two creatures he noticed while sitting in a boat with a couple of friends.

He noticed a field mouse on the river bank. He emerged out of his hole, darted in a couple of directions, and then scurried back. I thought of the existence of this little creature. His life is spent running around, frightened and frantic, following his nose. He darts here, scurries there, turns in circles, but never really sees much beyond his nose.

 

A parable tells about a martial artist who kneels before a master sensei in a ceremony to receive the hard-earned Black Belt. After years of relentless training, the student finally reaches the pinnacle of achievement, in the discipline. “Before granting the belt, you must pass one more test,” the sensei solemnly tells the young man. “I’m ready,” responds the student, expecting perhaps one more round of fight. “You must answer an essential question: What is the true meaning of the Black Belt?”
“Why, the end of my journey,” says the student. “A well-deserved reward for my hard work.” The master waits for more. Clearly, he is not satisfied. The sensei finally speaks: “You are not ready for the Black Belt. Return in one year.”
