    Though thou shouldst be going to live three thousand years, and as many times ten thousand years, still remember that no man loses any other life than this

      Though thou shouldst be going to live three thousand years,
      and as many times ten thousand years, still remember that
      no man loses any other life than this which he now lives,
      nor lives any other than this which he now loses. The longest
      and shortest are thus brought to the same. For the present
      is the same to all, though that which perishes is not the same;
      and so that which is lost appears to be a mere moment. For a
      man cannot lose either the past or the future: for what a man
      has not, how can any one take this from him? These two things
      then thou must bear in mind; the one, that all things from
      eternity are of like forms and come round in a circle, and
      that it makes no difference whether a man shall see the same
      things during a hundred years or two hundred, or an infinite time;
      and the second, that the longest liver and he who will die soonest
      lose just the same. For the present is the only thing of which
      a man can be deprived, if it is true that this is the only thing
      which he has, and that a man cannot lose a thing if he has it not.

        Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. “You have power over your mind – not outside events.

            It is all within ...

            All within all, and all within each ...

            ... very little is needed.

            "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven ... and yet with g-d, all things are possible"

            As g-d is within all things, and all things within g-d.
