If this is your first time reading my Tuesday Tao post, check out the original post here to understand more about this new weekly theme.
Which is dearer: Your fame or yourself?
Which is more precious: Yourself or possessions?
Which is worse: To gain or to lose?
So, great love leads to great sacrifice.
Great riches lead to great losses.
Know what is sufficient and you won’t be humbled.
Know when to stop and you’ll be free from danger.
Then you’ll last a long time.
This translation (found here) resonates with me. It touches on many things I have taken into consideration in my quest to live a truly rich life by getting back to the basics. I’ve realized that a rich life can be achieved by learning to live with less. Less things, less money, less lusting, less of whatever it is that is holding you back from finding fulfillment in your life.
Take a moment to read and reflect on the Tao above. Soak it up and let the words marinate your mind. What does it mean to you? What comes to mind? Can you apply this to situations in your life to gain understanding and perspective? Does it inspire you to make any changes? Does it confirm that you have made the right changes? Are you on the path that leads to where you want to be?
