Here, though, we’re not talking about Trojan Horses. We’re talking about any gift that excites us to the point of losing our good senses. We’re talking about gifts that are nigh-irresistible. You know what I’m talking about… think of them…
Ah, yes… the magnetic pull of the new & improved, the shiny & enticing. We can viscerally feel them tugging at our desires, pulling at our hunger, our lust for the glistening and gleaming.
Let's stop it. Just stop it.
Atreus: Who would reject the flood of fortune’s gifts?
Thyestes: Anyone who has experienced how easily they flow back.”
(Seneca, Thyestes, 536)
The first is all about ego and ourselves. The latter is about right-relationship, and NOT us.
In all this, I keep asking myself: where does Hospitality factor in to all this?
Perhaps, the answer will be found on Moderation’s road?
Our mantra: “No, thank you” as we continue our journey.
(See y’all tomorrow)
