"Oryoki," he said (the Japanese name for a begging bowl) "means 'just enough.'"


Two words.

Somewhere between the image of an empty bowl that made me feel peaceful and the too much that was driving me crazy, was a moderate, balanced space of JUST ENOUGH.

What is the path from Too much to Just enough? I began to wonder.
