  1. 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.



    1. 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.

      1. Hi Julie,

        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.
