We raised our anchor at the crack of dawn and turned south down the western coast of Langkawi.  As we rounded a headland, we glided silently past  an anchored fisherman asleep in his long tail boat.  He spent most of the night fishing, and before he went to sleep, he set a kerosene lantern on his bow so passing ships would not run him down in the dark.  He did not stir from his slumber as we sailed by in the rising sun, and as I watched him sleeping, I felt that I was witnessing something profound.

I was sailing in my complicated yacht that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars living my dreams, and he was living his in a vessel that cost a few thousand dollars.  A  single Briggs and Stratton pull start engine, oars for people power, and an uncomplicated fishing rig defined his existence.  He had simple pleasures, but he had a great life.

Wherever I sailed around the world, I continually met people who had simple pleasures and a great life.  Although they didn't have much money, a complicated lifestyle, or lots of things, they did have contentment.  Throughout our circumnavigation, there was a positive correlation between a simple life and contentment.   Whenever I returned to "uncivilization" in the rich countries, people were consumed by the cost of living high, and contentment was in short supply.

Several times in my life, I almost succumbed to the Gospel of More.  You know what I mean.  More is better, and the person who dies with the most toys wins.  Its victims give free reign to desire; they spend their lives chasing after everything that does not satisfy.  Only at the end of their life do they realize that more is actually less, because more chases contentment out of their heart.

Of course, this may all be sour grapes.  After all, I'm not rich in the things of this world.  My pile of dollars is fairly small, and in the acquisitions department, I didn't end up with a mountain of things; I have only a small mound to stand on.  If you look under my mattress, you won't find a stash of cash.  Instead, you will only find contentment.

Now that I'm back at work in "uncivilization", there's a  certain malaise in my life.  I'm treading water in a sea of discontent, and all of the things I didn't have or need a few months ago are now part of my life.  I have fallen off Exit Only, and I want to get back on board. 

The other day, I was talking to a USED LIFE SALESMAN.  He told me that I could  be rich and famous if I bought what he was selling.  All I had to do to  was make equal monthly payments of all the contentment that I have in my heart.  He gave me his personal guarantee that I would have an endless supply of cash and piles of stuff for my personal enjoyment.

I distrust USED LIFE SALESMEN and their promises of wealth and fame. I'm not buying what they are selling. Furthermore, contentment can't be purchased at any price.  I'll pitch my tent with the unrich and unfamous, and together we will raise our glass of contentment and toast our good fortune.  Life is good.
