Said the person who has never been without possessions.
@Juxtapose do you know what I have or don't?
Have you been out on the street with not even a thread of fabric on your body?That's what it would mean to have no possessions
@Juxtapose yeah I have been homeless
You still had the clothes on your back, which is having possessions.
@Juxtapose in that case food is a possession too and that means even animals have possessions.
Yep! Squirrels will even store nuts and remember where they are.
@Juxtapose maybe you and I mean possessions in a different sense.To me a possession is something that is not necessary for survival.
@Juxtapose I was penniless but while not without the same outfit for every day (i had one or two at most pieces of clothing to wear) I was a skeleton. In my teenage and early 20s my ribcage was clearly visible and my arms were showing bones coated with my skin.
And that perspective has taught you how important possessions are.
@Juxtapose Not really the possessions themselves but money. Money is everything in this world. No money = death is coming slowly and it will be the true suffering.
Money is just a paper or digital ticket to possessions though.
@Juxtapose One way to put it.
Resources are important for survival inorder to have health, family and love. So therefore those things are important most.
Resources are absolutely everything.No resources come in, we'll perish to bones. Dead.
