Just Be Content with What You Have

Just Be Content with What You Have

To enjoy life to the fullest, stop wanting anything. If something comes, let it come. If it goes, let it go. Just be contented with what you have. Even if something goes from what you have, it doesn’t matter. Accept it. You should feel, “God gives me everything that I need, and God takes away everything that I don’t need.” Then you will always enjoy what you have or what you lose. Yes. Enjoy the coming. Enjoy the going. Enjoy the profit, enjoy the loss. The only way to enjoy is to just be what you are. You’re not going to enjoy by getting things. If you are going to enjoy by getting things, you are going to be depressed by losing things. True joy doesn’t come from anywhere. Nothing brings you joy. No person brings you joy. You yourself are joyful always. So enjoy that. That’s what you call enjoyment. Depend on nothing, because nothing from outside can make you joyful.
