There is a great happiness in not wanting, in not being something, in not going somewhere.

    I had to think about this, Cherry. I am thankful for what I have, I don’t need more and I don’t need to be important. And I don’t want anything my neighbour has either…..
    I am content in what I have and don’t need more, does that count as happiness??

  2. Ginnie says:

    Astrid and I often talk about this, Cherry. I often say “I have everything I need; I want nothing.” It’s true that there is often happiness in not going anywhere…but going somewhere is also so much of our happiness…and I know you understand. :)

    Even more so true in our ever more busy lives.

    Walk a little down the road (make sure it is the Right road)- and there are roses to stop and smell. Walk a little further and there is an Indian Guru sitting on his backside humming. You can ask him how he is going. Then turn around as you are going the wrong way. Always try to go uphill.

    I call that sleep.

  9. This is very Zen. Emptiness is fullness. ;p
