Shackles


We should seek to own nothing so that nothing in turn may own us. It has been said that shackles are shackles even if they are made from gold. Often we may like to think we are living a good life enjoying materialistic things. Yet we do not own these possessions, they own us. We must work harder, longer hours to pay for them. We fear they may be stolen. We are anxious that they are losing value or falling into disrepair. This ‘gold’ that we have is worthless and destructive.
