Max, Middle, Just Right, Sufficient,...
We live amid concepts
-- the concepts of living happily.
We hear "live life to the Max"
-- don't hold back; do your best; do or die;...
We learn to "live in the Middle Way"
-- in peace and harmony; in contentment; in love not in war;...
We say "best to be just right"
-- not too hot and not too cold; not too weak and not too strong;...
We believe in "Sufficiency Economy" and happy living sufficiently
-- not as poor and not as rich, enough for our need but not for our greed;...
We live among poverty
-- there are a lot of poor and a few rich;
-- more of those who want wealth than those who want nothing;
-- most of us hate poverty and love being wealthy;...
We had abundant living resources to share
-- but destroyed regenerative processes in Nature for our "self";
-- and started the chain-reaction on "fighting for life";
-- Will the poor win because they have more "might" or lose because they can't unite?
We live working for wealth
-- to rise above the mass and to be more than average; (work)
-- to reach the top and to have power to command; (exercise)
-- to own and keep more living resources; (fat)
-- to be famous, successful and rich;... (stink)
(No?Yes, for ME!)
So, when some poor 'made it', they become rich,
and when we 'fail', we remain poor.
So, we walk between extremes,
up and down, facts and dreams,...
We experience feeling, tasting, enduring, moving on,...
growing, evolving, recycling on -- chained to a post.
(Thus, a folk story.)
We are all born bare as a baby
-- grow up and learn what we want to be
-- then die as bare as a body
-- all we can see.
(Whatever will be.)
Nothing in Reality.
