Enough is perfect

I asked for strength and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for wisdom and God gave me problems to learn to solve.

I asked for prosperity and God gave me a brain and brawn to work.

I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome.

I asked for love and God gave me people to help.

I asked for favours and God gave me opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted. I received everything I needed. »

Sufi poem, attributed to Hazrat Inayat Khan

This poem came to my attention through « The Soul of Money: Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Life », an inspiring and deeply nourishing book by Lynne Twist.
