Material things are such transient pleasures. Which one could possibly offer lasting happiness?
The secret to living a joyful life is not something found outside of ourselves, but knowing we are okay no matter what happens. When we are conscious in the present moment, we have everything we need.
While I'd enjoy driving to the park in a new Land Rover, my happiness does not depend on my owning anything at all.
This is the difference between presence and presents.
