The Prison of Stuff

The Prison of Stuff

The stuff you own owns you.

You put your soul and being into acquiring it. Your heart jumps at the thought of it disappearing. It is the tether that ties you to the ground.

You could give it all away and lead an ascetic life. But you will be no more than a coward. A slave who runs away is still a slave until he becomes his own master.

Here’s how to become your own master:

Each time money comes to you, show it who’s boss. Prove you hold the power to set it free.

Tear off a piece for someone in need. Keep the rest and use it for good things. You are no longer its captive. When the piece you gave away rose to the heavens, all that you owned rose also and was transformed.
