Timeless Wisdom

If you look to others for fulfillment,
you will never be truly fulfilled.
If your happiness depends on money,
you will never be happy with yourself.

Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you. 

I am finding this poem from the Tao Te Ching especially soothing at the moment. It helps to remember to celebrate life as it is, especially in the face of sudden, and somewhat unwelcome, change.
