Share the bounty. The desire for more, to accumulate merely to own, leads to imbalance. Instead, seek balance and modesty. Become a steward of the small and doable rather than seeking to possess for possession’s sake alone. There is no need for more than you can handle. In humble living comes satisfaction. In caring for little arrives abundance of pleasure. In having only what you need comes the energy to steward properly and with delight. Seek balance in everything you strive for, and maintain your little plot of the world, your place in it, so that all may enjoy the same pleasures as you yourself seek. To be in the Tao is to be right with everything, no matter the circumstances. Strive for that, to be right with what is, in each moment. And live with loving kindness for all beings in your heart. That is how to experience true joy and contentment.
