Dear World

WHY are we not asking questions about WHY we need –

More taller buildings to marvel at?
More extreme sports?
More big fat dreams that keep us fantasising?

More ways to bake cakes?
More coffee to keep us going?
More types of biscuits, candy and chocolate?
More supermarket cereal aisles?

More and more reality TV shows to entertain us?
More remote control for our busy life?
More daytime TV watching?
More fashion to look like others?
More ads to keep us wanting?

More solutions to our rising rates of crime?
More doctors to cope with our irresponsible ways of living?
More medicine from our pharmacy?

More alcohol to numb our pain?
More drugs to stay up all night?
More porn sites with even more way-off stuff?

More money as there is never enough?
More shoes and handbags?
More ways to shop and shop?
More credit card debt?

More holidays to self-medicate?
More fast foods and take-aways delivered to our door?
More restaurants with new menus offering more?
More different toppings for our pizzas and cupcakes?

More beds in our mental health hospitals?
More help for our youth who are self-harming?

More hospitals to cope with diabetes related conditions?
More sleeping pills because we can no longer naturally fall asleep?More books to stimulate our already busy minds?

More dangerous theme parks to distract us?
More prisons to house even more criminals?
More police on our streets with guns?
More illicit drugs and human trafficking?
More nuclear weapons?

Could it be possible that we do not feel enough and this is why we want more?

Could it be possible that we need more of anything this world is throwing at us because there is a void inside us?

Could it be possible that our insatiable greed for more is robbing us of true joy?

Could it be possible that our constant need for more is keeping us away from being real?

Could it be possible that this more business is not allowing us to keep life simple?

Could it be possible that more and more of anything is a lie and is not normal?

Could it be possible that we are exhausted of wanting, needing, asking and demanding more?

Could it be possible that we all know deep down inside us, there is a bottomless pit and no amount of what this world offers will ever be enough?

Could it be possible that we all need MORE connection to who we truly are in our inner-most essence and this is the true evolution we are seeking? 

Could it be possible that as a race of beings we naturally do not need anymore of what this world is offering us?

Could it be possible that our excess lifestyle of more more more is what is causing us all the ills that we are working hard to avoid?

Could it be possible that this blog is more than enough?

  1. Guilty as charged. I just have to open my wardrobe doors to see I have very much been living this MORE business. Now I’m reflecting on it, I’m aware there has always been a sense of scarcity in my life. Christmases as a kid, wanting all the presents and feeling deflated when the opening was over. Comparing my clothes to my school friends and wanting what they had. In later years, wanting what magazines told me I needed. Where did that sense of scarcity come from when it was clearly fake? The answer is in this question: “WHY do we view everything as less so the next goal is more?” Seeing all this outer stuff as not enough and knowing there is more but not living it. I’m certainly having a watershed moment with all this: starting to see the waste and the pointlessness in all the buying and striving. I often have a surge of this in shops where the rows and rows of ‘stuff’ reflect the craziness of it all. I mean, we can’t possibly need all of it and the number of sales each year show us production levels are much higher than even the crazy levels of demand – we’re constantly being flogged stuff and we’re falling for it hook line and sinker, filling our homes with more stuff we don’t need.

    We need to get this blog out there on the front page to help us all start asking these questions and looking at the why. And the idea that each of us taking responsibility in this could unlock the pattern of ‘ills we are trying to avoid’. So simple yet so powerful.

    1. A great catch Jenifer when you can reflect and come up with what you feel is the reason why you invest in this more more MORE business. Having scarcity in our past can make us wanting for more like a hungry appetite and of course the more is never enough.
      I like your honesty when you talk about ‘the waste and the pointlessness in all the buying and striving’. I could say ‘ditto’ as I most certainly had that way of living and thinking. It became normal as everyone around me was doing the same. However, I used to recall feeling bored and empty inside. I always knew something was missing and no amount of more more in this world was filling that void.
      Things are now super basic, real and a life that has meaning and purpose. Never a dull day here and I agree we need to get this blog out there on the front page so that more of us can start asking these questions and looking at the WHY.
      The responsibility bit that you talk about in your last sentence is simple and yet powerful if lived. We don’t need to rant on, rally or march to make our point. We just need to live in a way that is deeply true and self connecting and the need for more will no longer be there. How do I know? I live that to the best of my ability and so I have the authority to write a blog like this and present questions for us all to consider.

    2. I love your question Jenifer, which includes in it the answer: “WHY do we view everything as less so the next goal is more?”. It so clearly asks us to consider that the feeling of needing more is a result of not seeing/feeling things in full.

      What I have learned from my own experience of coming out of neediness is that the less “quality” with which I approach myself, others, things and life, the “more” I feel I “need” everything because I have experienced “less” of who I really am in it all and less of everything as a result of this ‘lack of quality’ which is simply a lack of presence and true sense of who I am.

      I know this now by the deeper connection, awareness and honoring of my body I have developed with the inspiration and support of Simple Living Global. I have a long way to go still but I am amazed that the bulk of my sense of ‘need’ for things & people, has just gone simply because I have more of myself more of the time and so I experience “more” in and of everything else.

      …so a person who is “full of themselves” in a truly loving and healthy way does not make a ravid consumer… is there any chance things are set up to entice us out of ourselves so we will “need” to buy?

      Do we want to eat that up too (the hook that takes us away from our-selves)?
      If we do then my question is “why are we so hot to drop ourselves, why are we so willing to let go of the one and only thing that we can consistently and truly have in this crazy world; a quality relationship with our inner self and with it our sense of well being?”

      Why do we trade in our essential sense of self and fullness for empty calories, shallow TV and other meaningless & loveless distractions when we all must feel, if not, know there is more to life?

      1. There is something in how we see things as less so as Jenifer says then the next goal is wanting more. Are we ever full up if we constantly got this more more thing going on inside our head?
        Great you use the word ‘quality’ Jo as this holds a vibration for us all.
        A classic example is today I made a choice to thoroughly clean out my wardrobe and I actually enjoyed just doing the simple task in hand with my utmost focus and not concerned about time or how many cloths I was using.
        Everything got re organised, I had more space which I have no intention to fill up and I needed nothing more. In fact I appreciated the basic simple living task that has a quality that leaves me full, not empty in anyway. Job done and focus on the next thing. The appreciation gave me a stop moment to deserve this was enough and the ‘wanting more’ like in the past just was not there.
        Could it be possible that during that cleaning moment I was with myself with no outer distractions and that was simply enough? Possible?

  2. I remember as a child the agony of trying to find presents for everyone in my family at Christmas. When I became an adult I started to question this concept of buying presents and it seemed like it had nothing to do with what Christmas was all about.
    I do not buy any Christmas presents now. I do not go to big partys. I try to spend some individual time with people if I can. I enjoy the holidays much more.
    During the year if something presents itself, that feels right for a person, then I will gift it to them.

    It is time to take responsibility for our personal lives and do something that feels right. We do not have to do something just because of traditions. We need to start rebuilding trust in ourselves, that we know when something is wrong and that we know what to do about it.

    1. A great comment Ken Elmer and when you say ‘agony’ I understand. I had the agony and misery of writing over 250 christmas cards. I used to buy then just after christmas half price and then hold them for a year – that way I could buy big fat glitter jobs that would get noticed in a heap of cards at anyones house.
      What an utter waste of time and for who and why is what I say now.
      Gone are the days of more more more. In are the days of less is more.

      I am constantly reviewing my lifestyle in every way and I am no where near perfect. What I have is a life that is lived with RESPONSIBILITY and that means asking questions about anything and everything. Not accepting a date in the calendar to go mad and spend spend or eat eat and eat just because its the season to be jolly or a celebration where we think we have permission to indulge.

      On the gift buying thing, I could say ‘ditto’ as I am the same as you with giving when it feels right and not because its a date in the diary.

      1. Yes the frenzy of Christmas. Once a upon a time I was a part of it, it’s as if the whole year round we have not done or been enough for everyone, so we pile it all for that one day, it doesn’t help when the media hypes it all.

        I am not the biggest fan of receiving gifts and interestingly I was once called ‘weird’ or and another time ‘unappreciative & fussy’ but what wasn’t heard was the fact that someone had made the effort (very appreciative) to buying me a gift that I will never use. So where is the truth of giving from the heart or is it because it is the done thing or an expectations of Christmas?

        For the first time I invited a couple of friends and family to Christmas dinner and everything was effortless, no stress, no performance just the joy of being in the presence of people I loved, now that’s priceless, that’s more than enough.

    2. This is a big one to broach, Ken: the keeping up appearances present purchasing. It’s work in progress for me and great to read your post about how you are out the other side. My current experience is that I’m simply not feeling to buy anything for my youngest for his birthday. Controversial, I know, but it feels wrong to go and get something for the sake of it when he can’t even think of anything that’s really calling to him. That’s not to say we won’t celebrate him to the hilt and sing and eat cake and have balloons, but the buying because ‘that’s what you do’ or because ‘kids get gifts on their birthday’, just isn’t speaking to me. I’m blessed to have received gifts truly given from the heart, on a day you weren’t expecting so I know what that feels like. It’s game-changing. And the you-are-truly-cared-for feeling of the gift just goes on and on. I also know what it feels to receive ‘ought to give something’ or because-its-a-certain-day-of-the-year’ gifts and there really is a world of difference – they just feel flat, empty, sometimes uncomfortable. So, I’m staying open to the possibilities. Let’s see what happens when I just keep listening to my own heart on this subject.

  3. Yes it is this time of year – we could call it the ‘more more more season’ as no sooner is the gift giving shopping done we go into the sales and shops are wanting to get rid of old stock which all comes out for the bargain shoppers and those who just need the ‘fix’ or thrill of getting something cheap.
    I was one of those who would buy stuff because it was knock down price and most often than not, I never needed it and it was a total waste of money.
    Interesting your sharing about your holiday treats every Christmas like a gift for yourself to fill the void you felt and of course impress the family and friends.
    Having more as you say does not give us a picture of a great life. Having more is not a passport to success and this blog gives us all something to at least consider during this festive time of more more more of everything.

  4. The holidays are about giving back and appreciation of what we have. Yet the amount of excess in the so called more developed countries is not only out of control, it is having a negative effect on our society.

    I live in the USA the champion of consumption. We are a small minority in number of people, but we consume huge amounts of energy and resources compared to the rest of the world, especially the so-called undeveloped countries. Basically there is not enough resources on our earth for everyone on this earth to live like the people in the USA. Is this the equality that my country was founded on?

    So what is our individual footprint on this earth? I believe that taking responsibility for own lives is the greatest gift we can give to our fellow humans. And it is a gift that can truly make a positive difference in people’s lives and that is deep down reason we want to give gifts.

  5. You hit the nail on the head Simple Living Global “Could it be possible that we do not feel enough and this is why we want more?” I know that is why I want ‘more’. I know for myself I can keep adding new projects and doing more work – without appreciating or recognising that what I bring is enough. I also know I have at times when Ive felt ‘low’ in self esteem gone shopping for a piece of clothing or make up or hair-do so as to ‘perk me up’ – which didn’t actually perk me up really, as the ‘more’ I was seeking was actually to deepen my own relationship with me, to get to know me, and to care for myself in every regard. I have also learnt when I crave the attention of others, or affection from others, it is because I am not giving myself the attention I need – on a basic caring level. So… ‘more more more’ is a great clue and warning bell for me – when I am wanting ‘more’ I realise that something about the way I am living my life is out of kilter.

  6. In 1968 the world’s consumption of natural resources exceeded what our earth could sustainably provide. This trend has increased since then. So are we living in a way that is taking responsibility for our future?

    The “Ecological Footprint Calculater” is a way to see how much resources you use compared to other people in the world.

    It was a wake up call for me to do this quiz. I live in the USA and even though I am very responsible about the resources I use, I am still using more than my share.

    So am I living a responsible life? And are all the resources I am using making my life better? I feel it is time to take responsibility for our personal lives and the effect it has having on our earth.

  7. Me too, Michael and I’ve also seen a drive for MORE when I’m seeking a reward, eg after a period of commitment, after delivering a project or after a long week. Why is there a resistance to sustaining the commitment or to working sustainably so there is no need for a ‘reward’? Getting good rest, caring for myself, exercising, eating nourishing food: these things should be enough and yet I sometimes have this pull to just have SOMETHING, particularly when I’m not sustaining that care. Anything will often do – a food ‘treat’, an unnecessary online purchase etc. Catching this means I can have a look at it more honestly and track back enough frames to see where the problem came in: where I was pushing beyond what felt right, rushing to fit everything in, seeing that I just didnt want to take the next step etc. Great to explore this: always learning.

  8. We live in a society that values wealth, fame, assets, possessions, more than seeing everyone as equal, even to the point of valuing wealth more than human life.

    Our youth want to get rich and famous quickly from either singing contests or sports.
    Our adults want to win mega bucks on the lottery so they can have their fancy cars, houses and holidays.

    It seems that people’s happiness is dependent on being super wealthy but where did this ideal come from?

    We could easily blame the advertising and manufacturing companies.
    We could easily blame our parents.
    We could easily blame others for having ‘more’ than us.

    Or is it possible that we need to take more responsibility in what we really need?

    What if this blog is right when it says “we all need more connection to who we truly are in our innermost essence”?

    Is it possible that connecting to who we truly are will banish those feelings of wanting more and more?
    Is it possible that if we fill ourselves up on the inside, we wouldn’t need so much ‘stuff’ on the outside?

    Up until 10 years ago, before the presentations of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, I was always wishing I had more money, especially when the lottery came along.

    Like many, I thought the lottery was the answers to my dreams and then proceeded to waste a lot of time, energy and money in pursuit of that dream.

    With the presentations of Serge Benhayon, I came to see that money is just an illusion because it could never offer me true fulfilment or contentment.

    Yes it can make life comfortable but having that feeling of NOT wanting more is so much more rewarding.

  9. A police inspector who was entrusted with destroying confiscated drugs but who actually stole them himself to resell on the streets, has been found guilty and will be sentenced soon.

    http://news.sky.com/story/policemans-163700000-drug-stash-included-washing-machine-jammed-with-cocaine-10805829

    After police became suspicious of drugs going missing, they raided his home to find £700,000 of drugs, which included 11kg of cocaine jammed in his washing machine.

    What makes a police officer, someone who has sworn to uphold the law, commit a crime like this?

    The lack of integrity here harms many people.

    The police inspector was in a position of trust, which has been severely abused. Not only by the actual theft of the drugs but also by the fact that his colleagues work hard to get the drugs off the street in the first place only to see them back on the street.

    What was the motive for stealing the drugs?

    Was it money?
    Was it power?
    Was it excitement, the buzz of it?

    Whatever the reasons, his wanting More, More, More has ended his career and put him in prison for a very long time.

  10. What next came to mind when I read about the millions we can spend doing up our private jets or yachts.

    We have interior designers working on houses starting at £10 million and going up to one hundred million pounds all over the world.

    So you get your own ‘platinum bathtub with studded crystals and leopard skin wallpaper’ and that was the headline on a news story earlier this year.

    Cinema room, bowling alleys, bars and spas what more could we want and how come there is always more more more that we want and nothing is ever enough.

    Where do we stop and WHY do we keep asking for more?
    What is it about us that wants to kit out our private jet, spending almost a million bucks just on a bespoke shower?

    Does it bring us the joy we so deeply need and crave?
    Is this material way of living the answer to all our dreams and prayers?
    Are we satisfied with the bling in the ostentatious over the top lifestyle or is something missing?

    Are we seeking something and we think this is it but it really and clearly is not?

    Do we convince ourselves that this is what we all want but when we have the more we move the goal post, like this blog says?

    I wonder what studies would show if we could do qualitative research and observe and really see what people are feeling and how their behaviour is when they have this way of living?

    What would it highlight and reveal to us and is there more that would be exposed that we may just be unaware of?

  11. What is the reason(or energy) behind all the things l have acquired in my life. The reason why l wanted more.

    Did l get all these things because l felt l deserved them or because l felt “not enough “?

    There is a huge difference between these two reasons.

    When I was a young child, l did not get the love l though l needed. Because of this l decided l did not need love, l was ok all by myself.

    But what l was doing was avoiding feeling the rejection from my parents. And deeper l felt that I did not not deserve love, I blamed myself.

    So all the stuff I was accumulating was around not feeling enough rather then l deserved to have things in my life to support me.

    I am now claiming the fact that l deserve all the things in life that support me.

    1. What wise insight, Ken.

      It also explains that ‘I can do it alone, I don’t need you’ reaction when someone is not being loving or helpful. It is easy to go into protection and lock down and become a person who doesn’t ask for help.

      Very interesting to look at how that plays out in our choices to gather ‘belongings’ around us.

  12. We live in a society where you are told having lots of material things makes us happy. But does it?

    Are we wanting more because we want to fill that empty gap in our life?

    What are we Really searching for?

    Could it be what we really want is to be ourselves without the gimmicks and the big car and the house etc.

    Could it be deep down we crave for a simple life without the pressure of Feeling you need to “keep up with Jones” so to speak.

    Why are just not enough to just be our natural self?

    Its Great to re-visit this blog!

  13. An article in the BBC News, 23rd October 2017, talks of how “Patients need rest not antibiotics, say health officials.”

    More patients should be told go home and rest rather than be given antibiotics.

    Public Health England (PHE) says up to a fifth of antibiotics prescribed are unnecessary as many illnesses get better on their own and overusing the drugs is making infections harder to treat by creating drug-resistant superbugs. They say patients have ‘a part to play’ in stopping the rise of infections.

    Antibiotics are vital in certain cases but are not essential for every illness.

    PHE says that:

    • 5,000 people die in England each year as a result of drug-resistant infections.
    • Four in 10 cases of bloodstream E.Coli infections now cannot be treated with first choice antibiotics.
    • By 2050, drug-resistant infections around the world are expected to kill more than currently die from cancer.

    The medical director of the PHE told the BBC: “We don’t often need antibiotics for common conditions. The majority of us will get infections from time to time and will recover because of our own immunity.”

    “Patients should not go to their doctor expecting antibiotics.”

    He also says: “The fact is, if you take an antibiotic when you don’t need it, then you’re more likely to have an infection that the antibiotics don’t work for over the coming months.”

    The advice for infections now is to:

    • Have plenty of rest
    • Use pain relief such as paracetamol
    • Drink plenty of fluids

    At PHE’s laboratories, the site’s head of antimicrobial resistance said: “The most potent antibiotics, like carbapenems, were failing more often. If we go back to 2005/7, we were seeing these bacteria in maybe two to four cases per year. Last year we confirmed these resistant bacteria in over 2000 cases.”

    The statistics are obviously very worrying as the drugs that are meant to help us recover are potentially what may actually kill us.

    It’s commonplace that when we go to the doctors with any sort of infection, we expect and demand the doctor give us antibiotics and so we have become so accustomed to these drugs they are no longer working.

    It’s been known for a long time that antibiotics, while they can be powerful allies for the human body in fighting disease, they can also do more harm than good if used in the wrong situations, which is why we should follow the advice of the doctor.

    It seems our demand on the medical world to relieve our pain is fuelling an even bigger problem.

    If rest, fluids and paracetamol can get us through an infection, it surely has to be better than using a drug that will no doubt kill the bacteria causing the infection but will also kill all the good bacteria.

    As a society we are always wanting ‘More, More, More’.

    Well, in this case, our insistence on having more antibiotics for all our ailments is now actually harming us.

    What if, in some cases, simply just resting is enough for our bodies to recover?

    Is it possible that resting our bodies, regardless of having a disease or not, is way more powerful than we could ever imagine?

  14. I was just reflecting on this more more more stuff and realised how I would in the past drive myself nuts to make sure I topped the last birthday gift or experience or whatever it was. It was always a push to find more, do more and never ever be content with what was there. This would create a lot of complication and of course there is the financial cost too.

    What a utter waste of time trying and trying to get more, achieve more, be more and hook into this more more more disease because that is what it is if you ask me.

    Today life is super simple and I can honestly say I feel deeply content with not chasing and wanting more more more of anything. It is what it is and my choices can change anything I no longer want.
    I even have more time so the stress factor is not there and that in itself speaks volumes about the quality of my life.

    I reckon we have more and want more because there is a void and something is missing and it’s like a bottomless pit, we just keep wanting more and more and more.

    Really boring as you are going around in circles and not really evolving.

  15. I totally agree with what you say here Bina. I know a few people that have the big house, the flash car etc and still they talk about wanting more. We live in a society where everywhere you turn there is a marketing gimmick telling you to apply for another credit card, loan or a better car.

    Surely, if we lived in a simple way then things would be different.
    I am certain the drive and stress of wanting more would cease.

  16. The Week – 2 December 2017

    ‘41% of people who play the lottery at least once a week say they would continue to play even if they won the jackpot.’ (YouGov).

    Is this not telling us something about our desire for more?

    That no matter how much we have it is never enough.

    Why is that?

  17. I was recently talking to a guy who had been on a ‘slum tour’ in Mumbai.

    They bring in the waste on container ships and it gets taken to the slums and piled up. From there people, including heaps of kids, come and sort it into different colours and types. From there all the plastic gets taken to a particular slum ‘street’ where it gets passed along different shops that variously sort and treat it with differing machinery.

    At the end of the street it comes out as plastic pellets that can be used in manufacturing.

    The slum folks each get a few pence out of the process.

    Until recently, I had no idea we were shipping our waste to different countries. And I had certainly not considered that people living in slums thousands of miles away would be sorting and processing it.

    I wonder how many others do not even think about how much waste we are producing and where it all goes?

    How much of this massive waste production is because of our expectations and always wanting more?

    How far away are we from living sustainably on this planet of ours?

  18. Thank you for this fantastic blog.

    I, too, know this phenomenon of wanting more, more, more. I’ve wanted more money, more clothes, more holidays, a bigger house, more experiences…the list goes on and on.

    But, what I have come to understand is that all my wanting of things out there in the world is a substitute for having and being the real me that’s inside.

    I have experienced moments of being the real me and, in those moments, my mind has been still of activity and all I have felt is joy. And, in that joy of being the real me, there is no wanting for anything.

    I have also realised that when I want something, I often don’t need it.

    The mechanism of desire begins with wanting something and that wanting feels terrible. I feel deprived and in lack.

    To quieten that agony of lack, my mind gets busy, goes into overdrive with thoughts of how to get that desire and thus rid myself of the painful thoughts of lack.

    My mind stays busy generating thoughts of how to get the thing or fantasies, pictures of what it would be like to have the thing, until I have the thing desired.

    Once I have the thing, the mind goes quiet because I can let go of all the thoughts of wanting once the desire is satisfied. Once the desire is satisfied, I don’t need those motivating wanting, get, get, get thoughts anymore.

    So, the pleasure of getting something is often just the pleasure of my mind being stilled in the moment that all the thoughts of wanting, desire and lack are let go of.

    So, instead of constantly wanting more, more and more of all that stuff out there in the world because my mind has told me that wanting results in having, I would much rather just be the real me inside all the time.

    This is because, when I am the real me inside, I feel as if I have everything already.
