There is no try

“Be the person you are,” Osho urged his followers. “Never try to be another.”

“Do or do not,” Yoda told Luke Skywalker. “There is no try.”

Osho talked about “accepting the responsibility of being oneself, whatsoever the cost. Risking all to be oneself …”

But take careful note: no way do I see this as an excuse for behaving badly! Accepting responsibility for my actions is crucial.

And do you remember how the scene ends?

“I don’t …  I don’t believe it,” Luke admits.

“That is why you fail,” says Yoda.
