Two mornings ago I rode my bicycle to the coffee shop for the express purpose of buying a coffee. Afterwards, I carried it with me to the gardens at the old Lawn Bowling Center, sat down, and enjoyed the peacefulness of the moment. All around me were bees, busily doing bee stuff. I think to know contentedness or fulfillment, once must divest the mind from anything that agitates it beyond what is healthy. Then you must focus on only a few things. Just like a bee. In my case, my focus is on my duties when I am at work, and my duties on my leisure days. In between it all, you try to do a little for others, while avoiding the stress of sainthood. Unless, you are a natural born saint, then knock yourself out.
