I’m afraid I can’t agree with the notion that one ceases to exist without possessions.
I prescribe to quite the opposite. It is in shedding our need for possessions, that we find out true, purest self.
Either way, thanks so much for sharing.
I like to understand others opinions, especially ones different to mine.

Hi Eli, thanks for your comment – yes, I tend to agree with you in regard to the self, but, in relation to others in our life i feel different. I keep my father’s smoking pipe on my desk, he passed away a few moths ago in a terrible car accident, and I love having his pipe to remember him by.

I’m sorry to hear about your father, and can agree that when it comes to others, objects do take on a different quality. As if something of them remains in them.
Perhaps ultimately, if heading off on a philosophical tangent, all other people in our lives are somewhat object-like in their nature. Pawns in our greater play.
Either way, thanks for your response.
