I was referred by a health care provider a few years ago to a mindfulness course to help me with anxiety I have had for my entire life. I really found this mindfulness course helpful and it has lead me to reading and discovering more about buddhism. The internet has made this process relatively easy lots of experiences to read, video, podcasts and list of books to explore. I just had another question though about one thing that has come to my mind a few times over the years and I just wanted to get people’s thoughts on it.
Greed and desire, I have seen referred to or described as the material (desiring things) or the positional (position of power or influence). Currently I have been noticing that rather than people talking about the desire for these things it seems more about the desire for experience, the holiday, the restaurant, the party etc… I am also wondering if these are just different sides to the same coin.
Just wondering as most of the material I have listened to and read as often used objects as the examples, what do people think?
