Often you do not have reverence for that which you own, and losing that reverence happens unconsciously.
Whatever you revere becomes bigger than you. When you have reverence in all your relationships then your own consciousness expands. Then even small things appear to be significant and big. Every little creature appears to be dignified. It is the reverence in every relationship that saves the relationship.
When you have reverence for the whole universe, you are in harmony with the whole universe. Then you do not need to reject or renounce anything.
Reverence in ownership frees you from greed, jealousy and lust. Cultivate the skill of having reverence every moment in your life.
