Man always wants to possess: Money, recognition, power, love. Even in love he wants to possess the other. The ego wants for itself, to increase itself. And so many conflicts arise. Just as it possesses something, it must defend this, because in truth everything belongs to wholeness. To want to take for oneself is to declare war; to want to possess brings much suffering. We can use things, but we cannot own them. For even our body does not belong to us. When we die, it returns to the cosmos.
There are different ways of giving: materially, spiritually. The greatest gift happens without expecting anything back, when you forget who is giving, to whom you are giving and what you are giving. The true gift opens us and unites us with wholeness, without wasting a thought on benefit, mushotoku (without goal, without purpose).
