Being content

Why cannot we be content with the secret gift of happiness that is offered to us, without consulting the rest of the world? 

Why do we insist rather on a happiness that is approved by magazines and TV?

Perhaps because we do not believe in a happiness that is given to us for nothing? We do not think we can be happy with a happiness that has no price tag on it.

Thomas Merton
