Everything But The What?

The singing duo ‘Everything But the Girl’ (EBTG) adopted their name from the slogan of furniture which had a window sign that read, ‘for your bedroom needs, we sell everything but the girl’. A reminder that the material is still incomplete. In fact, the non-material or spiritual is the essential. What makes a well-furnished house a home is peace of mind, with or without good company.

Even if you get the gal or guy, he or she cannot stay forever. Either you or the other departs first. Will your life be incomplete (again) then? In Dharma sense, it is the Dharma well learnt, well practised and well realised that is essential for a truly fulfilling life, that completes it. Do you have EBTD? (Everything but the Dharma?)
