More Than We Need

Posted on by Matthew Kramer-LaPadula

What happens when you take from a jar and don’t replenish? The jar eventually becomes empty. It is a lesson of which we are all aware. And yet, by definition, we exhibit insanity. Because we expect the jar always to be full. Because we take each and every day without giving back the same. We demand more from the Earth than we give to it. We demand more from others than we give to them. There is only one endpoint on this path … an empty jar.
