To be Contented is to be Happy

In an conversation with one of my friends that happened quite some time ago, he said something that striked me as being so meaningful and applicable in our lives today. He said in mandarin ” zhi(1) zu(2) chang(2) le(4) “. That just hit me really hard about how much truth those 4 little chinese words meant. In translation to English it just means, if we are contented we will have everlasting happiness.

In our daily life of constant struggle for material wealth, comfort, and survival, we have overlooked that little morsel of wisdom. How much of it all is enough to fulfill us? Once we have achieved what we wanted, would we want more? Will we ever be fulfilled, or will we crave for even more fulfillment?
