Happiness does not come from having much, but from being attached to little.—Venerable Cheng Yen!!!

So many scholars, monks, wise men have repeated the same ideas of living the good life, or maybe living fully.
.
Being attached to little means no judgment, ownership, grasping with thought, or large ego.
.
It seems to me the less ego we display, the more humility, empathy, compassion and happiness becomes available; people are far more accessible.
.
As with listening intently, giving up thinking what to respond, definitely clears a space for deeper listening, deeper friendship, deeper understanding, deeper life and living.
.
We have two ears, listen twice as much, use the space built from meditating to not react to distractions.
.
We are just training the mind to empty and be at peace, totally present, here and now.
