Material possession is not an end in itself. It supposes to serve our needs but not becoming our needs. In the choice of to have or to experience, I value the experiences over things. Case in point being the all consuming money.
Further, material desire distracts the mind from focusing on what is truly important. Not saying material goods are not valuable. We need foods, water, and etc. to survive. But to thrive beyond survival requires we set clear boundaries on our efforts.
Have a nice week!
