LESS IS MORE.
LESS IS MORE.
GLUTTONY: Extravagance, indulgence, excess, impropriety. Lack of temperance, as in the indulgence of an appetite or a passion. Lack of self-control (as in satisfying an appetite)
GREED: Selfish, stingy, self gain. Strong desire to want to have it all. An excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one needs or deserves, especially with respect to material wealth: "Many ... attach to competition the stigma of selfish greed" (Henry Fawcett). Excessively desirous . You want more and more of something, especially money.
EGOÏSM: in a moral sense: it is solely at your own interests and gain. Big Ego, selfishness, self gratification, "me" oriented. Someone who is full of himself and doesn't give a darn about other people . EGOÏSM in another sense: Caring for own well-being, healthy stand up for yourself.
All Three traits of character can exist independently of each other, but also have an attractive force, whereby the character traits amplify and stimulate each other.
Am not a trained psychologist / philosopher, but in my humble opinion, i have the idea that selfishness and EGO is age-related, the EGO in adolescent years and in the time of career and family are more important, than in the time when you are a baby and when you are getting older.
THE GREED OF THE ELITE OF THE 0.1% RICHEST ON THIS EARTH.
Greed enhanced power, power and greed reinforces selfishness. Another phenomen is that one gets great fear of losing power and greed. All stimulating forces, factors, making it almost understandable that people who have power (which might have been from the very beginning of our human civilization), it will maintain and always tend to increase it.
Seen from that point of view, it is so understandable, but it is at the cost of oppression, poverty, wars, slavery, lies, manipulations that makes it the most extreme extremism of all time. But the people itself are also responsible that it has come so far and that we let it come so far.
Power and greed corrupt, and absolute power and greed corrupt absolute.
Civil disobedience is a moral obligation, if governments are corrupt and lawless.
Governments do not do their jobs for wich its exist - to care for their citizens, protect and ensure prosperity - those governments are morally bankrupt, because they do not serve the people. Our governments work for the multinationals, the capitalist system, in the shadow government (0.1% elite), who direct the entire world events and orchestrate them.
LESS IS MORE.
Our meaning of life is not based on external wealth and power, but inner wealth. External wealth gives no satisfaction, always wanting more, without ever finding happiness, just a fleeting moment.
Our sense of our existence, is developing yourself, evolve yourself, develop your goodness, in service to the community, you develop divinity within yourself.
Every human being has good and bad qualities. In my opinion, the existence of life itself is to develop good qualities and know the bad qualities. And by knowing the bad qualities. by identifying, monitoring, controlling one can iradicate those bad quailities.
'Less is More', gives more peace, provides balance, harmony, happiness, more quality in life, contentment.
Less greed, less power 'power should have a limitation date, like milk. When milk is spoiled, you throw it in the trash', less selfishness, it would be better for our society and Mother Earth.
Less pollution, less nuclear - waste, less arms industry, less medication (legalize Marahuana, unprecedented and unlimited possibilities), no food manipulations.
We are responsible for our own lives, but we also have a collective responsibility, even to those in power. Because they have totally lost track and therefore they are victims themselves, from their own greed, their own abuse of power, of their own existence.
Collective responsibility is when we are in service to our fellow man. When we are not in service to our society, our Earth, our life source, we are useless. Without Earth there is no life. Without women no life.
UNITE AND CONNECT, IN LOVE AND RESPECT FOR HUMANITY AND OUR EARTH FOR A BETTER AND HONEST WORLD. THERE IS ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE, WHERE THE EARTH CAN RESTORE HER HEALTH. WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EARTH BEING ILL. WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR HEALING HER .IT WILL TAKE ALL OF US, IN A NONVIOLENCE WAY FOR REAL CHANGE .
