To develop concentration, I must reduce my ambitions and activities. To reduce my ambitions, I must have few desires. To have few desires, I must be satisfied with simple food, clothing, and shelter. Whatever possessions I may have, I will not be attached to them. If I do not have possessions, I will consider destitution a support for my practice. Whatever happens, I shall be content.
