Above all else, be content with your lot, rich or poor, happy or miserable. Understand that God has designed it for your own good, and be resigned to His will. Remember the present in the frame of the past and the future.
You eternally were and always will be. You have had innumerable forms as man and woman, beautiful and ugly, strong and weak, healthy and sickly, powerful and helpless, and now you are here again in another form.
Until you gain spiritual freedom you will be invested with many such forms, so why seek temporary relief now which would only result in further bindings later? Do not ask God for money, fame, power, health, or children, but seek His grace and it will lead you to eternal bliss.
