We always need more
It is insatiable really
To guzzle back
To quench the thirst
The desire to obtain

The desire to consume
The need to suffocate the space around you with objects
Ingesting and burning up as much of the substances around you
That insatiable hunger

We need to have it

Or do we?
How do you smother the greed?
How do you choke down hunger?
How do you pacify the demon of consumption?

Can we give ourselves permission
To appreciate having space uncluttered
To say no to owning everything
To ask the question
What happens when there is nothing left?

  1. Beautifully written. Since the beginning of 2017 I have been trying to calm down the monkey mind which keeps talking to me about have this or have that….also reading about the difference and knowing the difference between Need and Want has helped me to unclutter my surroundings!
