Once They Deny Themselves

Meister Eckhart

People who seek peace in things, places, people, and activities - or in world-flight, poverty, and humiliation, whatever the avenue or degree - look in vain, for there is no peace this way. But once they deny themselves, then whatever they keep, be it wealth, honor, or anything else, they will still be free from it all.

Very true. There is peace in simplicity. However, trying to maintain a simple life is VERY hard!
