The Paradoxes of Life - Less and More

We are happier with less but we spend all out time and effort wanting more. Less furniture, less stress, less to worry about is all welcome. We're happy with the simple meal, the simple clothes, the breeze under the tree, the grass under our feet...but all our lives we spend running ourselves to death trying to accumulate things (the heavy meals, the branded clothes, the air conditioned comforts, the upmarket houses) so we can retire into a life of those simple comforts we dream of.

What we yearn for in our hearts, we do exactly the opposite.
