    “Material wealthy, but time poor.”

    Watched half today, will return to Australia to watch the rest another day. Don’t have the time?

    No, I am choosing which desires or “cravings” I want to fulfill. Food outranks “fuel” right now.

    Just finished the rest.

    “unfaithful cravings,”

    the “Buddha Karma Stock Market never crashes.”

    “use cravings for the right goals.”

    “Open the Door of Your Own Heart,” title of his book.

    Vocation can become vacation, paraphrasing Mark Twain.

    And my favorite:

    “. . . to want for nothing . . .” wow! what a zinger for a novice in Buddhism like me.
