Greed is an effort to stuff yourself with something —it may be sex, it may be food, it may be money, it may be power.  Greed is the fear of inner emptiness.  One is afraid of being empty, and one wants somehow to possess more and more things.  One wants to go on stuffing things inside so one can forget one’s emptiness.  But to forget one’s emptiness is to forget one’s real self.  To forget one’s emptiness is to forget the way to god.  To forget one’s emptiness is the most stupid act in the world that a man is capable of.
