"The woods are lovely dark and deep,
And I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep"
- Robert Frost

The Romantic poets of the 1800s believed people could live in harmony with nature. Robert Frost, the poet whose poetry enriched the culture of the US and the philosophy of the world had a different note to say. He thought, the purpose of people and nature are never the same and so nature's meanings can never be known. Probing for nature's secrets is futile. Humanity's best chance for serenity does not come from understanding the natural environment but comes from working usefully and productively amid the external forces of nature.

Work is worship I guess but the conern is when people become workoholics, many feel the blues and this is when one needs to apply 'brakes' - One needs apply the art of 'Let Go'. Let go create spaces, simply doing nothing, sitting silently or just freaking out. Stop doing, stop being creative. By 'Let go' workoholics would not turn towards lazy attitude but on the contrary, be more relaxed, the more powerful explosions and work will start having quality of creativity. Loving the work is art itself but knowing potentialities and plunging into creativity is Happiness.
