Give up control

Let go of the moments of joy just as the moments of sorrow. Don't cling to them.
Relax in the present, forget past and future alike.
Stop trying to control the course of your life. That's it, that's the only meaningful renunciation: Give up control of your life. Let it flow. Just let it flow.
Don't do anything. Don't strive for anything. Allow life to satisfy you.
Act when you feel like, without any purpose, simply because you flow into action. Otherwise remain still.
Give up desire. There is nothing that needs to happen in order for you to be happy. You can be happy now, wherever you are, with whatever you have - or don't have.
If you are not happy now, even if you managed to conquer the entire Universe, you would only become more miserable.
