    Success with Money and Joy

    When we want to occupy a mountain,
    Even though we make it,
    We are also occupied by our desire,
    And so desire creases.

    If we want to have success,
    Have money,
    Have joy,
    Actually, we are occupied by our desire,
    And so desire creases.

    We shouldn’t occupy the mountain,
    But become a mountain,
    And so mountain becomes part of us.

    We should not to have success, money and joy,
    But be part of them.
    And so little success, little money, little joy are then being parts of us.
    Nobody could take them away from us.

    Re: Success with Money and Joy

    I think you mean to say desire increases.

    Try:
    We shouldn’t occupy the mountain,
    But become the mountain,
    And so the mountain becomes a part of us.
    Perhaps:
    We should, to have success, money and joy,
    Become part of them.
    And so little success, little money, little joy are then part of us.
    Nobody can take them away from us.
    What do you think?

    if you have something, or say, you own something
    how could you be one of them?

    i think owner can't be the things you "own"

    You are right, of course. The owner and the things that are owned are two different things.
