XI. So now it is time to take these thoughts to the next level. So far I’ve been thinking mainly about how practicing detachment from material or sensual goods, far from being an indictment against them, is actually the road to true appreciation of them. But that is only the beginning. There are things in life greater, far greater, than material or sensual goods. Even the most sublime created thing, representative though it may be of transcendental realities, is essentially finite. However there exist in our world created beings (not things) which are infinite and as such far outweigh even the most brilliant pizza ever made. I speak, of course, of people.
