True prosperity

True prosperity is something we all have but do not realise it.

If we chase money, wealth, what we do not have, sure we can be motivated and driven. But when we get the perceived prosperity, we will still not be prosperous. We will still deep down be discontented and wanting more, we will have already moved onto future increased fake prosperity, so we will not even appreciate the extra wealth.

True prosperity is this precise moment that you are reading this. That is because this present moment is our only real life. If we adopt gratitude now for all that we have and accept that is what we have right now, then we will give up on the pursuit of fake prosperity and be truly at peace with all that we have already.

Constantly wanting to be in the future, with it’s projected hope and salvation means we are always waiting, instead of enjoying the only true prosperous moment, life now.

Another trip round the sun

So another trip around the sun comes to end today.

I’ve had 52 of them and often on a New Year’s eve I reflect about the past year and many times I have planned to make all these amazing changes over the next trip around.

The reality is maybe we can always keep changing or improving or searching for more, however you define improving or better or more, or we can realise that perhaps we are already the person we want to be and perhaps we can be content that we are already living the life we want.

There is always better or worse in the future, but it never happens because the future is an imaginary thing inside our own minds.

Life is now. Enjoy what you already have, don’t let’s be anxious about what might be.
