We all have it.
Some of us have more of it than others.
Many of us have it, but forget what it is that we have.
The meaning of it here can mean many things.
I saw on TV a couple who could barely walk, sleep, or even cook in their home.
Now that’s a lot of it!
But how many of us do...can...or want to?
What does the simple life mean in today’s world?
No Cable or Satellite TV?
No cell phones?
No iPods or mP3’s?
To have little is sometimes to have more.
This is a paradox that must be experienced (or lived) to be understood.
A Chinese factory worker told a TV reporter, “I can’t believe you Americans buy all of this sh**.”
(Yes, he did use the s word.)
But he also expressed his gratitude that we do buy all of this sh**…so that he can continue to have a job.
Cultivate your own garden, but also remove the weeds.
(It’s so much easier to give advice than to follow it.)
If you’ll excuse me now, I’m going to begin my Spring cleaning.
