Contentment brings Peace - Wisdom from the Tao

Lately,  I have been mediating on the peace and calm of the Tao.

When there is Tao in the world,  people are content and easily satisfied and countries get along peacefully.

When the Tao is absent from the world, people seek fame and wealth.  Countries fight continuously.
There is no greater disaster than discontentment.  There is no greater crime than greed.

The only lasting satisfaction is that which is found in knowing when enough is enough.  If everyone were contented, the world would be a peaceful place.
