Possessions don't always bring happiness.
You come into this world with no possessions. As you grow, your drive to posses thing grows too. Anyone who's watched children play knows thes Toddler Property Rules:
If I like it, it's mine
If it's in my hand, it's mine.
If I can take it from you, it's mine.
If I had it a little while ago, it's mine.
If it's mine, it must never
appear to be yours in any way..
If I'm doing or building something ,
All the pieces are mine .
If it looks just like mine, it's mine.
If I think it's mine, it's mine.
Where did this self-centered drive to own everything we want come from?
