impermanence, living in harmony…

Infinite growth of material consumption in a finite world is an impossibility.

~ E.F. Schumacher

we cannot consume or attain our way out of suffering. we are free from suffering when we are free from seeking to attain more and more and more. simplicity and some renunciation bring freedom and freedom brings joy. we are free from suffering when we have learned to live in balance, in harmony, with all life.
