… but is there anything better?
Wealth and money can be lost through poor decisions or taken from you by the poor decisions of others. Success and fame, by their nature, are things that always stay outside our grasp because they’re constantly changing, morphing, and mutating. Once you get your hands on “success”, you’ll find it’s idealized form shifting through your fingers, then find that success looks very different… and your quest for it begins again, and again, and again. Finally, anything from another, including love, is something that’s completely outside our control, whether we like it or not.
So, there has to be something better, right?
Yes… and that something better is: Virtue.
How we behave and move through the world is exclusively up to us. The decisions and micro-choices we make in every moment help to frame and inform our Virtue practice… again, generating the “goodness” of Virtue is exclusively up to us. No one else. It cannot be taken from us, nor can it come from anywhere beyond ourselves. It’s like we become the singular, never-ending font of our own happiness…
… and where, I ask you, is there anything better than that?
