LESS MAY BE MORE

As human beings we seem to be tied to our possessions and find that we spend a lot of our time trying to make more money so we can get more possessions.Then we find our possessions are not really making us happy so waht do we do? Yeah, we go and amass more stuff thinking it will surely make us happy this time.And no matter how much money we have we seem to always want more. Not that there is anything wrong with wanting to be wealthy but we must be careful so that we dont spend all our precious time working harder to just have more money. I will leave you with a quote from George Santayana who stated: "I like to walk among the beautiful things that adorn the world; but private wealth I should decline, or any sort of personal possessions, because they would take away my liberty." I leave all of you with thoughts of love , peace, and happiness to you and yours. And please try and do something nice for someone today just for the heck of it!

Spot on!
The system is built upon our willingness to be passive consumers.
If we can change this notion, we can the world.
All the best to you and yours.

Namaste brother, peace and love prevail. Wealth is but a distraction from discovering the true self.

In Lak' ech, trading love for wealth prostitutes the soul...

What you said is so true...many of us do try to get every new gadget as soon as it comes out. Sometimes I think I have way too many things,and I know that happiness does not come from 'things', but it is good to have enough to get by...have you heard of the documentary film "I Am"? It was done by the Hollywood director Tom Shadyac a couple years ago...I haven't seen it yet but I really want to! It sounds like it's right along the lines of what you're talking about. Shadyac was (is) a big time director who realized that his mansions and his cars and all his possessions were not making him happy, so he sold it all and bought a mobile home! I think it's a really nice mobile home, not trailer trashy or anything...but still, he made a point to all the other millionaire directors....if you've seen it let me know what you thought...great post as always Ron! Peace to you and your family! Love ya! ~e.

Clearly less is more, because the long COMMENT I wrote to you is more than the allowed "300 characters", and is rejected.
You raise good points.
(Do I really need that drum that I ordered for my professional work and have not yet picked up?)
BlesSings for discovery and "less",

This weak spot getting an influence on a 32-bit Glass windows kernel, Office 2010 which Microsoft Office 2010 proclaimed a few weeks ago, soon after Search engines electro-mechanical engineer Tavis Ormandy unveiled that on the safety e-mail report, will certainly make the item simple for an assailant to enhance liberties so as to entire practice get, when the challenger can be during the course of action.
