When everything is taken away from you and all you have left is you, you will soon realize how simpler life is.
The mentality of “the more I have the more I am” is the most dysfunctional way of living.
Things, people, and events are all transient and many of us still chasing these things. There is nothing wrong with wanting more money, more things, and experience more wonderful events in our lives… the dysfunctional lies in making it into a substitute for joy and happiness.
True joy does not come from the content of our life, true joy comes from within. The only way joy can emerge from within is when the mind is empty and in a peaceful state, not occupied by worries, anxiety, and fear. When we have more of this or that we want to keep it and attach ourselves to it, so we spend most of our days worrying about keeping it but deep down we know things come and go and nothing is permanent. So my friend the less you accumulate things in your life the happier you are and remember that sometimes less is actually more.
Love + Peace
