Appreciating everything we already have

There was a master staying in a hermitage who was robbed one night by a thief. In his compassion, the master gave the thief everything he had. Later, after the thief had left, the master was gazing at the perfect moon in the sky and said to himself, ‘Poor guy, I wish I could also give you the moon.”

What we already have, like the ability to see, to breathe, to feel, to walk, to hear, to taste are already the most incredible, amazing and beautiful miracles on earth. They are simple and already freely available. Do you know that? Appreciate your life, be thankful for everything you have because nothing lasts forever.
