High social value is placed on he or she with more.
More likes. More dates. More friends. More travel. More money. More fame. And on and on.
All these things and those like them allegedly signal, "I am special. I am more worthy than most," which is why they become blind pursuits. Blind, indeed.
In the presence of more, we easily get lost. We lose contact with ourselves and our innermost thoughts and feelings. High as we may feel, after some time, a nagging will appear to come down and sober up.
The truth is: we need less to be more. We need to be empty to feel full. It's totally opposite of conventional wisdom. Just look at where conventional wisdom has brought us!
In the presence of less (people, things. activity, noise), we catch up with ourselves and truths we may not have been aware of before.
Such is the path of realization. To realize what is truly true for us and there abide.
