Excessive










Excessive: Exceeding a normal or reasonable limit

How hard it is to really let go! Oh yes, it is .........Be it Hobbies, Music, Movies, Gems & so on.....

The desire to have more & more with the brush of daily materialism........nothing seems enough, the end, satisfaction?

My excessive journey into materialism is painfully on & so is the struggle to get over it.....I know this excessive must end....

One day............I don't know if it would be a fine day................to just let go.......

[ Hearing about this, people thought: "Now let us get sharp swords made for us, and then we can take from anybody what is not given, we will make an end of them, finish them off once and for all and cut off their heads." So, having procured some sharp swords, they launched murderous assaults on villages, towns and cities, and went in for highway-robbery, killing their victims by cutting off their heads.

Thus, from the not giving of property to the needy, poverty became widespread, from the growth of poverty, the taking of what was not given increased, from the increase of theft, the use of weapons increased, from the increased use of weapons, the taking of life increased . . . (Digha-Nikaya III, 65 ff.) ]
