Quote of the Day

Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.

-Buddha

Such wisdom.  How can we ever attain true satisfaction if we always compare ourselves and our possessions to others.  There are no “haves” and “have nots”, rather there are those who appreciate and those who do not.  Those who have learned to truly appreciate what they have received will inevitably live a more fulfilling life.

Thoughts?

    A wealthy ol man passed away and people was curious – How much did he leave?
    A: Well, everything to be honest.

    There it is. We have nothing and we have everything. It isn’t “ours” to begin with, but then it isn’t anyone elses either. It just is and it passes by. Just like we do.

      Great perspective, I definitely agree. We wont have any physical possessions once this temporary state of life is over. Everyone lives and dies, there is no way around that. Make the best of your precious time here and enjoy it!

  5. I completely agree! Gratefulness is the beginning to welcoming the natural abundance of the earth into your life. I believe the earth wants to give us everything, and it is there for our use. Only when we remove the false perceptions of things like “I don’t have this…” (unnecessary and useless, yet so very easy to fall prey to) can we begin to see the earth’s gifts shower upon us.

    Great great post! 😀

    Brightest blessings.

      Limiting beliefs ultimately limit our creative powers. If you don’t believe you can accomplish something, you never will. Removing negative thought patterns can have an extremely positive benefit on your overall well-being. You will be able to go after your goals knowing you will succeed if you put in the required effort without falling slave to your minds limiting beliefs!

    Awesome quote and I couldn’t agree more. The Buddha also preaches the “Middle Path”, which is basically a balanced way of living and viewing things. The Middle Path is said to eventually lead to the extinction of suffering within oneself. I think that by detaching ourselves from everything pleasurable, while not forgetting how to appreciate what is pleasurable, we free ourselves from the cravings which lead to “suffering”. What I mean by that is, the Buddha always preached that everything that is pleasurable leads to cravings and cravings and greed prevent you from reaching Nirvana. So, by detaching yourself from all things where craving arises, the feelings envy and jealousy wont even be a thought in your mind.
