Opener: Joan
Although the earth’s resources have natural limits, our own greed has no natural boundaries and so we must learn to limit our desire ourselves.  We must do this not only to protect the planet but to find a way to share earth’s bounty fairly among all living beings.  A life based on pursuing things is fundamentally unsatisfying. As the Buddha said, chasing our desires is like drinking salty water. The more we drink, the thirstier we become.
