You have Enough

During this time of year when consumerism is at an all time high, constantly convincing us, we never have enough of anything, I thought this story was a good reminder to look within and see what we already have.

 

An old hermit was once invited to visit the court of the most powerful king of those times.

“I envy such a saintly man, who is content with so little” said the ruler.

“I envy Your Majesty, who is content with even less than I” responded the hermit.

“How can you say such a thing, if this entire country belongs to me?” said the offended King.

“For precisely that reason.  I have the music of the celestial spheres, I have the rivers, the oceans and the mountains of the whole world.  I have the moon and the sun, I have the earth, the sky and the stars,  I have Spirit in my soul.”

Your Majesty, on the other hand, has only this kingdom.

 

Merry Christmas to my beautiful bloggers!  As I say each year, thank you, thank you, for your love, support and for sharing your world with me near and far!  I appreciate each of you and the unique gifts you offer in this world.

  2. Another perfectly timed message, Karen! Thank you for continuing to be a beacon of love, hope and reason in what can be a cacophonous world of greed and need. Everything we need is at hand, if only we choose to see it. Have a *fantastic* vacation! Sending love….xox, l

    1. You are a beautiful beacon of light too Lori.✨✨ It does takes discipline and commitment to stop and see the beauty within us and around us. Have a wonderful holiday season ahead, and I hope your first Christmas in your new home is filled with owls and lots of love!! 😘🌲💕💚✨

  3. What an utter delight, both the story and the pics…. I only ‘met’ you a short while ago and already I feel just fine in your presence! Happy, joyful, peaceful Christmas and wildly wonderful holidays in Vanuatu (no idea where that is but it looks like paradise to me, the water lover!). Have a hug too!!!

    1. You are beautiful soul Kiki! Thank you! 🙏🏻 it’s been lovely getting to know you too and I hope you have a beautiful Christmas. Vanuatu is an island in the South Pacific Ocean, about 3 hours East of Australia and it looks so beautiful! I am definitely a water lover too. See you in 2019 🏄🏾🌲🌈💕

      1. Karen, now I feel all warm and cosy…. thank you. No wonder I don’t know that wonderful place, it must be just about as far away from Europe as it goes!!!! AND I know know that the person whose flat Hero Husband is renting for a while wrote a message on WhatsApp with lovely pictures about 6 weeks ago….. I didn’t dare looking it up either at the time and now I know why!!!! Isn’t life funny like that?! It DID ring as if I should know…. HAPPIEST DAYS to you and your beloved ones. And a sound YES to meeting up virtually again in 2019.

  4. Happy New Year! I love this message. My boys and I had a Christmas that wasn’t full of the material, but rather with time together. And it was wonderful. I hope you had similar!
