On my flight home, I did something I’ve never ever done before. I finished a book (more than 213 pages) while on a plane. I was totally absorbed in this book. There are so much learning tips and living skills that one can pick up from the book. I strongly recommend that everyone reads it. I’m so glad I did. I bought it in Little Italy, New York from a quaint little shop that sells all things from Tibet. Read it and you’ll know what I meant.
Just something from page 161 of the book to provoke your interest.
Happiness = Satisfaction / Desires
“You’re rich if you’ve enough money to satisfy all your desires. So there are 2 ways to be rich. You earn, inherit, borrow, beg, or steal enough money to meet all your desires; or you cultivate a simple lifestyle of few desires; that way you always have enough money.
“A peaceful warrior has the insight and discipline to choose simple ways p to know the difference between needs and wants. We have few basic needs and endless wants. Full attention to every moment is my pleasure. Attention costs no money; your only investment is training. It’s cheaper!!”.
The secret of happiness is not found on seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.
