Seeking and finding

When someone is seeking, said Siddartha, It happens quite easily that he only sees the thing that he is seeking; that he is unable to find anything, unable to absorb anything, because he is only thinking of the thing he is seeking, because he has a goal, because he is obsessed with his goal. 

Seeking means: to have a goal;

but finding means: to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal.

You are perhaps indeed a seeker, for in striving towards your goal, you do not see many things that are under your nose.

Herman Hesse, Siddhartha
