simple abundance

When I was out at Goodman Park on Sunday, I was amazed at how many plants I found growing out of the rocks.  There’s obviously very little there for them to sustain life, but yet they do.  They have everything they need, even though it appears to be so insufficient.  We humans seem to, for the most part, want more than what we already have, and what we don’t realize is that we already have everything we need.  There are so many simple joys and so much abundant beauty around us, but we don’t always see it in our pursuit of material things.  I don’t believe that material possessions can make a person truly happy, whereas for instance, a walk in the woods, listening to the wind in the trees and the song of the birds, or sitting beside a river, or silently watching the sun rise or set, can fill our souls with a joy and peace that cannot be found anywhere else.
