  1. GREED

Greed is the state of restlessness of the heart, and it consists mainly of craving for power and possessions. Possessions and power are sought for the fulfillment of desires. Thus greed always finds an endless field of conquest and leaves the individual endlessly dissatisfied. The chief expressions of the greed are related to the emotional part of man. It is a form of entanglement with subtle sphere.

Be greedy to own more and more wealth of tolerance and justice.

Greed is the possession in all its gross and subtle forms. It covets appropriate coarse objects and people as well as ephemeral things as money, power and fame. The very idea of exclusive possession is unthinkable in love. Greed which derives the self so appropriate, the target of its craving ends in slavery to it. Love whose spontaneous joy is to give away the self to the object of its longing, leads to the absorption of the Beloved in the very being of the lover.- Meher Baba
