To live fully, we must learn to use things and love people, and not love things and use people.
How many possessions in your life do you really love? Forgetting about the items that are life essential, and solely focusing on the ones that are in your life because you appreciate them for some reason or another, how many would you estimate you have?
In contrast, how many people do you have in your life that you genuinely love?
Whatever ratio you are able to produce from the two questions above will give you a metric as to the things in life that you ultimately value.
Morality is, for the most, part taught at home. An absence of such creates a void in a human being who works to traverse the world to their benefit while simultaneously missing some of the core ingredients that make for a fully realized life.
Without that morality, the person is left to find their moral compass through the observation of others while simultaneously transposing their life experience atop a series of variables that have manifest out of their own personal encounters with others.
When a person is enlightened, they recognize the higher value in another human being, and in doing so, they discover an even higher value within themselves. How could this not be so?
It is only through the personal determination to rise above societal norm that a person is able to look past their possessions in order that they might see the greater wealth in life that arises from meaningful relationships stemming out of respect for others.
Possessions are a wonderful accoutrement in life, but so many of us make the mistake of valuing them above and beyond everything else, and only through self realization comes the opportunity to transcend the attachment to those possessions in order that we might discover and even deeper value system within our own being.
