People have lists of material things that think they would want. People strive to acquire things. They desire to possess, have to have, need to have or desire certain objects. Our society teaches us that people should work hard to get what ahead – to get what they want. People need to study, find a job, and make money to buy that lavish house, that sporty car, or the latest phone with 12 megapixels. We live our lives throwing the dice, the dice tumble – we tumble, randomly. They keep rolling, tumbling, rolling, tumbling. Is it all a matter of luck? How do we know when to stop rolling? Can we stop tumbling?
