Fulfillment

December 27, 2016 pwm1

To you, all you have seems small; to me, all I have seems great.  Your desire is insatiable, mine is satisfied.  See children thrusting their hands into a narrow-necked jar, and striving to pull out the nuts and figs it contains: if they fill the hand, they cannot pull it out again, and then they fall to tears.  “Let go a few of them, and then you can draw out the rest!”  You, too, let your desire go!  Covet not many things, and you will obtain.
