Finding contentment

Post by Candlelight.kk on Tue 25 Jul 2017, 11:47

"When the sun rises, I go to work. When the sun goes down, I take my rest. I dig the well from which I drink. I farm the soil which yields my food. I share creation. Kings can do no more."
-- Chinese proverb


Do you sense the peace and contentment that can come from an appreciation of one's place in the cosmos?
How do we get there with the complexities and pressures of our current lifestyles? Perhaps it's a matter of becoming aware of what we truly have as opposed to what our egos believe we need. If we look closely, we may find that our ego 'needs' are just desires.
When you find yourself longing for something, stop and ask, "What is missing from my life? Is it a need? What are the essential qualities of what I seek? How can I experience that now?"

"If we have not quiet in our minds, outward comfort will do no more for us than a golden slipper on a gouty foot."
-- John Bunyan

Thats a bit deep for me.  hmm   I cant see myself finding much contentment if I have to dig a well every time I want a drink!
