First Week of September-Doing or Being

Lives based on having things are less free then lives based on doing or being. People living at the highest level realize possessions  are meaningless.  Only those who have no interest in gaining wealth for wealth sake can follow an enlightened path. Sloth and cowardice creep in with money we have to guard.

A man possesses of learning only so much as comes out of him in action. A person is a good person only in so far as his deeds demonstrate. For every tree is known by its fruits.

William James, The Varieties of Religious Experience (edited by PAT).
