True Satisfaction


A Quaker had this sign put on a vacant piece of land next to his home:


"THIS LAND WILL BE GIVEN TO ANYONE WHO IS TRULY SATISFIED."


A wealthy farmer who was riding by, stopped to read the sign and said to himself,"Since our friend the Quaker is so ready to part with this plot,I might as well claim it before someone else does. I am a rich man and have all I need, so I certainly qualify."


With that he went up to the door and explained what he was there for.
 "And art thou truly satisfied?" the Quaker asked.


"I am, indeed, for I have everything I need."


"Friend," said the Quaker, "if thou art satisfied, what dost thou want the land for?"

P.S: 
Great story !!!!!! 
In the world that God created 
there is always enough and more 
to satisfy the needs of ALL.
It is the human need for greater security...............
the belief that having more will lead to greater happiness.......
that has changed the world.....
and ravaged Mother Earth.
The time to shift and change our attitude is now.......if not now.......then when??????
Namaste,
Bhagya
