Many people are convinced that possessions will make a difference and that they are measured by how much they possess.
We exert great energies in collecting things until there is no more room in our houses, garages or offices for all the tokens of our experiences. It is not long before we realize that problems accumulate right along with our possessions.
We need lawyers, financial planners and accountants to help us structure our lives. We must construct stronger safeguards to secure ourselves and our possessions. Peace of mind is purchased with louder alarms, greater police protection and insurance policies.
Without question, our society reinforces the idea of having more and then worshiping what we have. We are induced to buy and buy again, then discard and buy newer and better and more.
It seems we are only reminded of the true value of love or life when we are faced with its loss. This is a lesson that is as old as human history and it still takes some of us a lifetime to learn it.
