Ever Since I lost my ipod i have decided to stop my materialistic ways in order to change my own life and so far its working but why is that we have to lose these types of things to realize what is important in life?

It narrows down to elimination; what do we really need? Technology, sure, it can be tempting and useful. But it can also make us rely on it too much and take other things for granted.

I'm not saying throw out all your appliances and wander into the desert aimlessly. Just only use those as a secondary source, and put other top priorities ahead, like family, friends, a carreer, and the world around you.

I think it's just the matter of not being attached to things, I guess. I know I was once quite addicted to my iPod. But, when you lose the material things in life you sort of see how life REALLY is. You sort of pay attention a lot better, I don't know how to explain it. Also, I find without all those objects you communicate with other people a lot better. For example, I can never have a real conversation with either of my brothers because they are always so distracted and focused on their video games. And yeah, hope I helped, but doubt it. :P

Because once you give away your desires you become more real for other things that are awaiting you.
You gain more wisdom and understanding when you become less materialistic.

:)) Good for you.. You could always become better and get better things than you're getting now.
But it's not always gaining that happens.

Because it makes you think about what's really important...and what's really important is not necessarily a lost iPod, so you are driven to think about what really matters.

there are many people in life who believe
that in the end, the one with the most toys wins,
when in reality, you have to learn to survive without the aid of your computer. <}:-})
