A Rich Man

A man is rich in proportion to
the number of things which he
can afford to let alone.

  1. cultivating a practice of happiness and staying in the moment 😀 even when i’m tangled in a web…always appreciate your teachings and compositions Eddie…have a beautiful day ~ smiles hedy

  2. Thank you. Yes to allow ones mind and the world which it resides to simply “be. Powerful sentiment in that one does not need to resist, force change or control our world. Henry David Thoreau is so intelligent and well spoken — one of my favorites. He is up there with Eckhart Tolle, Alan Watts, and Eddie Two Hawks.

  3. Spanish Moss is a first for me Eddie.. 🙂 and a wonderful quote.. We can afford to live with a quarter if not less of what we have.. And if he had ‘left things alone’ man would not have needed so much to help make himself feel rich..
    Love and Blessings my friend.. ❤
