Still… I have to mention this, just because I am aware of some small things in life and because (I think) I can put things in perspective every now and then… I too have wishes that are luxury related… like right now, I am saving money to buy me an Apple PowerBook. Because I choose user-friendliness, graphical performance and design over some probably just as good working clone laptop… It is a wicked world, where it seems so hard to find a pure way of living.
I for me think I have chosen the following way:
I try to live my life in balance. Yes, I sometimes choose for luxury, but on the other hand, I donate to the needy, I have periods where I “consume” less, where I go back to basics.
Most important is that we try to keep in mind that we are on earth to live and give and share life… Let us hope that some more people become aware of this.
