We Have Enough. We Don’t Need More.   Leave a comment

Last night, I had this dream.  Society had collapsed. Most people were dead. A few of us had survived. And everything was gray.

You know the standard post-Apocalyptic scene.

But in contrast to the day I spent yesterday shopping amongst the throngs in our local city, the dream seemed important.

People in my dream kept saying, “We have enough. We don’t need more.”

I wonder what our society would be like if we decided this for ourselves. What if we decided that we had enough and we don’t need more?

I don’t know how to do this exactly – I’m not good at it myself.  Yesterday I bought gifts and yarn, and I love seeing the new things I bought.  Yet, I don’t need any of it.  None of it at all.  I truly do have everything I need.

My dream lingers with me.  We have enough.  We don’ t need more. I think I need to try and live that out more fully. I hope in the next couple of weeks to explore here, with you, how I will do that.

What about you? How do you deal with our society’s interest in acquisition? Do you feel like you have enough, or do you need more?
