Sufficiency mans to have what is needed, no more or less, and to live with and use that amount, rather than hoarding more than what is needed or going without what is needed. Sufficiency is economical. You can never have enough of what you don't really need -- unfortunately we don't believe that, so we accumulate and hoard much more than we need. It is so much wiser to be generous, allocate rather than accumulate what is more than needed, and let others benefit at least from our surplus. By sewing the more than I need so it can make a positive difference to others, I reap inner wealth and joy. As I get older, I am much more conscious of giving and sharing what I have to hopefully benefit others, and I am more conscious of the satisfaction and joy I experience in doing so. Experiencing the value of inner riches doesn't go away, it stays with me, and helps me to value inner riches over outer riches.
