    • I see what you mean, but to me it’s not a contradiction. The way I read it is more about being and having. The one refers to materialistic possessions and the other about turning inward…I think 🙂

      • “…I think” – I don’t think there are any right or wrong answers to that, just an interesting revelation of character in the way you look at it 🙂

      • Diagnosis? Nah, that’s too much like a judgment, and that’s not something I do much of 🙂 I simply wanted to know what your perspective might be. I wouldn’t be so sure that we see things so differently … I actually like the idea of being happy with who and what I am, and I think much of this has to do with a general lack of materialism. I arrived at this through Stoicism (and, to some extent, the concept of Wyrd); which is why I find it fascinating when I encounter someone who arrives at a similar place, while approaching from a different direction 🙂
