buddhism seems to regard highly about being contented .. and i believe it is one of the greatest aspects buddhism has.. however questions from other people got me thinking, and it seems i need some help from more matured buddhists to answer some of it.. particular questions are:
1. how do we distinguish contentment from doing nothing worthwhile with our lives?
2. how about in the situation of parents wherein their income cannot feed their children, should they just be contented with what they have even if their children are starving?
3. what separates being lazy to being content, apart from the mindset of the individual? it seems that other people can only see one aspect from both.. not doing anything!
really need help answering these questions.. thanks guys
