Greed and Need
Greed is way of life for some thinking it will bring happiness. Need often turns to greed in whisper of wind. Happiness dwells within simple wisdom of knowing that usually less is more. One steak most delicious. Two steaks quite fattening and not needed unless planning to share with someone.
Less possessions lead to less worry about them being stolen, breaking down, or vanishing with passage of time. Key to happiness is quite the contrary of greed. The more we give away, the more we get. The more water you get from well of Tao, the more there is to get. Very strange, but fact of life and Tao.
Share the wealth. Leave some for others. If possible, provide for those less fortunate. Verse 77 of TTC indicates we should give away what we do not need. Get real understanding of what you need.
