Forever Poor

Enjoying life involves both engagement and detachment
To see the trees I look at the sky
To see the flowers I look at the trees
And to see myself forget myself
It is this dual focus that makes wisdom possible
And helps us to find meaning in any situation

Ask yourself this:
If you cannot find meaning in any situation
Any happy or horrible circumstance of life
Then how can you find meaning in anything at all?
For if our happiness is dependant on outcome
We are forever poor

    you find meaning by locating value. then you see meaning was invented and your skills and excuses all trained habits.

    your only happy with what works.

    but if you truly see no meaning In meaning then you make your own and your only poor if you combine specifcs with convenience. dont be poor unless you want to be in the source of confu
