The Art Of Doing

Snapshots of Ikigai Series, Part 3: The Ride

(Part 1, Part 2)

The core of every religion on earth is a version of the Golden Rule: do unto others as you would have done unto you. Everything else about them is just ritual and ornament.

The appealing thing about the Japanese concept of Ikigai is that it zeroes in on the “do” in the Golden Rule. Ikigai is the comfort of doing in the moment, finding meaning and purpose in the now, embracing quality.

That’s it.

There’s nothing more it it.

Immerse yourself in the joy of doing unto others.
