    If you will answer the question then you must define the distinction between having and being. I believe this will strongly gives us a direction to live a simple lives.

    Unfortunately having is directly connected to freedom. People who don't have money constantly meet unpleasant situations. They end up doing what they don't want to do. Inflation crushes them. Being is great if you don't need anybody or anything. A balance of having and being with awareness may be the best choice. In that way a person can create space, be detached from the ignorance, focus on the inner life and keep the bills and expenses paid.

      You see when human being tends to pursue more of having. We simply just forget that living isn't just acquiring or having there is more than that. When we pursue further of the former the more things gets complicated.
