|15. Earthly recognition?
thanks, but no thanks!
Keep away from the shackles
of people's approval;
long live freedom!
Praise and disapproval
do not differentiate our goal.
When we love what we do,
we have the acceptance of God,
who said that we should listen
to our hearts.
We live and act free from other people's opinions.
Our value is stable and unchangeable
whether they praise or condemn us.
The prize in the soul contests of our life
is awarded by God only, and by no man.
We do nοt anticipate any result from our work.
We do what we do only because it pleases us.
We never work with teleological purposes,
because, as long as we are on Earth,
the future is always ahead and we can't know
the result of our work, anyway.
