On Being Content – Tao Wisdom

Fame or integrity – which is more important?
Money or Happiness – which is more valuable?
Success or Failure: which is more destructive?

If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never be truly fulfilled.
If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself.

Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.

Today’s wisdom comes to us from The Tao Te Ching (English Version, Chapter 44)

The words are easy to understand, but the lesson is a hard one to learn. I will admit it’s one I still struggle with.

Thankfully the first step towards a better life is taking a step in the right direction — are you willing to take that step with me and use this wisdom today?
