The Nature of Enjoyment

Many of us don’t even know why we want a long life.  Yet we feverishly pursue all methods and therapies to attain a healthy body.  We stubbornly believe that a healthy body enables us to have greater enjoyment in life.

Enjoyment in life cannot be achieved without a balanced state of mind.  Yet many of us overlook this basic truth.  Even if you are in the peak of physical health but without a settled mind there will still be no enjoyment.

Ask yourself what is enjoyment?  What is the nature of the body?  What is the nature of the mind?

When we don’t even know our own nature, how can we even begin to say we are truly enjoying life?

Only through mediation does the beauty and enjoyment in life blossom.
