A “Master” is someone who has become so efficient
at a particular craft or art that they have literally
“become one” with it.
When a master loses himself in his craft, it is almost
like he is not actually doing the thing…
…it seems that some supernatural force engulfs him
and takes over the movements.
This is evident when watching the Olympic athletes,
especially the gymnasts and dancers.
They have “mastered” the activity to such a degree
that they no longer think about what they are doing,
their bodies just do it.
Some people call this “the zone”.
You can choose any activity to lose yourself in, and
become a MASTER.
There are master musicians, master carpenters, master
mechanics, master archers, master salesmen, master
weight lifters and master cooks.
There are masters walking amongst us at every moment

food like a madman.
Sometimes he would complete an entire dish, take one
taste and throw the entire thing away!
I asked him why he would do such a thing, and he would
answer…. “It’s just not right!”
Here is a man throwing away an entire dish of food. Food
that was perfectly edible.
But because it was not “perfect”, he would refuse to serve
This man was not just a cook, he was an artist.
He was a MASTER at the preparation of food.
And there is no doubt that he created some of the most
delicious meals I have ever eaten.
What will you choose to master in your lifetime?
What skill can you pour yourself into fully?
An activity that you love so much that you literally die to
yourself and awaken in the activity for the moment?
