***i don't think he meant no possessions and having nothing but rather the idea of being possessed by possessions - which is a buddha and probably many other religious or philosophical penchants - in that it's ok to have things but to be possessed by them to the point of extremes or stress and worry etc. etc.

***my 2 cents....

**And who is qualified to judge as to when it becomes 'extreme'?
**
**
**When it crosses that line?

*the individual - that's the point, it is not literal otherwise we wouldn't have pants as they are possessions - it is being possessed by them, which is individual in ones journey, spiritual or otherwise...




Precisely... Yet we are bombarded constantly by people who judge as to when others have enough... If one takes stock of him or herself and decides that things have become more burdensome than beneficial and acts upon that, great...


But when people decide for others why they acquire these possessions and how much is too much, that's dangerous territory......
