Sometimes it helps to meditate on the
wisdom of the ancients for their timeless wisdom. Let us reflect on the words of Lao Tzu, the 6th century Chinese philosopher, which ring true even today.

“If you look to others for fulfillment

you will never truly be fulfilled.

If your happiness depends on money,

you will never be happy with yourself.

Be content with what you have:

rejoice in the way things are.

When you realize there is nothing lacking,

the whole world belongs to you.”

~Lao Tzu
