Can you remember that one thing in the past that you always desired.
And one day, you finally achieved it.
How did you feel then? On top of the world?
How do you about them now? Do you even remember?
Always remember to be grateful of what you have.
When I was ungrateful, I was not successful. Because even the things I’ve acquired, I didn’t see them. – Infinite Waters
Would you choose a man who can give you his everything, or a rich man who can give you something?
All our children need is our time.
Not toys. Not money. Not busy. Not babysitters after babysitters. Not video games. Cartoons. Candies.
All they need is time.
Our destiny is created by heaven but changing it is in our own hands.
To advance, we should realize that letting go is not only restricted to money and material possessions. We can also slowly learn to let go of our 6 senses. Sight, smell, hearing, taste, touch, and thoughts.
We should always prepare for the worst.
Even in times of prosperity, act as if you were not.
When things are going your way, be mindful of adversity.
When you have enough food and clothing, be mindful of poverty.
When loved and respected by all, remain apprehensive and conservative.
When the family is greatly respected, carry yourself humbly.
And when your learning is extensive and profound, always feel the more you learn the less you know.
– by Ven. Master Chin Kung
No way. I refuse to accept that life is all about studying hard, working hard, getting married, make love, have kids, earn a million bucks and die peacefully.
There must be more to it.
