What seems to help me nowadays is the Buddhist concept of "Less Is More." It's the practice of desiring less. So I was wondering if any others of you at this forum practice that life-style too. Of the primary emotions that a human has, there are such emotions as fear, and anger, compassion, and,of course, desire. And when we say greed, what greed means is desire taken to a stronger level. Desire is not only for material things (such as having your own car) but also desire for somebody of the opposite gender. That kind of desire can cause extreme pain if the emotion can Not be controlled. What I'm driving at is the Less desires you have, then the better. The way to begin that journey is by beginning with food. There is a saying about food that goes "Eat to live, Not live to eat." So when I eat, I have food which has as Little taste as possible, the Least taste possible. Too much taste stimulates emotions, especially the emotion of desire, and that leads to the emotion of desire spreading to other areas of your life. Too much pleasure is the cause of our problems. So the saying "Less Is More" means that the Less pleasure you have, then the more discipline you have. Let me hear from you others who practice "Less Is More."
