NOT Always Greener On The Other Side | by Ajahn Brahm

We often have the notion that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. This can give rise to jealousy, envy and in turn, suffering.
According to Ajahn Brahm, we need to change our attitude towards life. Statistics show that the optimal happiness one can achieve in life is not measured by immense wealth, great beauty, high flying careers or social standing.
According to Buddhist teaching, it is the middle way that counts. Embrace your ‘average’ circumstance and enjoy the experience.
