Enough and Happiness

Today, May 22, 2013, I think I had an insight worth sharing. I decided that having enough and being happy with that is the key to happiness.

Today I decided that I have enough of everything and my unhappiness is caused by the excess in my life, both material and spiritual. My material goods need sorted and decreased. Spiritual issues like concern for others and how much to give can now be considered and choices made.

Example. Today I decided I had enough time and I won't rush or waste it. Naturally, that takes practice. My part of the world is known for rushing about and so am I, or just being stymied by too many decisions. Some might have all this figured out and it may be considered trite and useless, but I don't and I still need to make decisions accordingly and need help with that.

I worry, worry and concern myself about othere near and far without focusing my efforts and resources effectively. Now I can at least get started with a better focus.

    Dearest Rose,

    A great self assessment…Bravo…not always easy to do, or easy to face and act upon. A great exercise in “food for one’s own thoughts.” Think most of us could benefit from this… Thank you for sharing. I wish for you direction and focus and a path filled with happiness and love and contentment. HelenSophie xxxxx

    Well put Rose, and we can all take a leaf off your tree – as I once read somewhere (and it stayed in my memory) “Be still to understand”….. for a long time It didn’t make sense, but it does now. Not that I’m always still, but I know where to go for that stillness – inside my mind….may you find your pathway and may it lead you to happiness and peace….((((((hugs))))))) Lina xxxx

    Well said.. often we notice the negative and ignore the positive.. our mind and self talk that goes on in there can take control and often we let it when feeling sad and unhappy.. was it Buddha who said “the road ahead is clear why throw rocks in your way””‘ I wish I had your clarity.
