Be content to have just what you need

November 7th 2023

People who have great material riches are never at peace; they are constantly in a whirl of activity and worries of all kinds, always on their guard against the ambitions of dishonest, greedy people who have an eye on their fortune. And however vigilant they are, can they ever be sure of foreseeing and parrying every threat? The weight of their never-ending cares drags them more deeply into matter and cuts them off from the regions of the spirit. As a result, they waste a great deal of time and energy which could be used so much more profitably for their own evolution and that of all those whom they could have helped with their spiritual riches. Whatever tasks you have to fulfil, it is better not to overburden yourself but be content to have just what you need. You only complicate things by asking for more.*
