Take a few moments to pause and reflect on these wise words from Lao Tzu.
Your being or your acquisitions:
Where lies true value?
Loss or gain:
Which is more damaging?
Extreme attachment is the foundation for extreme anguish.
Acquiring in excess is building for great loss.
Find contentment from within.
Be aware of how you affect your surroundings.
Allow freedom to flourish around you.
Do not impose or dominate.
This is what it means to be sustainable.*
