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.
This is where I will be soon! Can’t wait Vanuatu 🙂
