The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.

Past the need

When you don’t need anything, then you truly have everything. When you know that you already have enough, that you already are enough, that everything is as is should be, then the richness of your life will have no bounds.

Get past the need to possess you’ll discover that the whole world is yours. Abandon the need to be right and you’ll find real truth. Let go of the need to impress others and you’ll have their sincere respect.

As long as you feel you need something it cannot possibly be yours. The more you focus on the need for anything, the more you deny it to yourself. Why would you want to do that?

Instead, realize that whatever you desire is already available to you, and enjoy the process of making it a bigger and bigger part of your life. The more you appreciate, understand and focus your energy on the good and valuable things in your life, the more you’ll see every desire being fulfilled.
