appreciation of good things

While appreciating the good things in the world, do we get lost in our sadhana?

One can definitely appreciate good things in life.  But one should
not desire to possess them.  They will come to you, if they are
ordained for you.

Once when someone started plucking all flowers from the trees
in the Hill, Bhagavan chided that devotee, saying: "Why do
you want all of them?  Are not the flowers more beautiful in the
trees?  Are not the flowers that have already fallen on the ground,
enough for your puja?"   

Arunachala Siva.
