What is the use of excess, of too much? In the material world excess can be destructive, more often than not it serves no purpose. Nature does not like excess. The body does not like excess. The spirit does not like excess.
When is excess good? Only when it is shared is too much of anything useful, but even such sharing has its issues. Rather than seek excess, seek enough, expect enough, give enough.
Look to your heart to speak of its contentment with all things. As it strives for balance, let your body tell you what is right. As your own nature seeks its limits, let it be naturally flowing and at ease. Balance, contentment, and equilibrium in all things will settle naturally as you walk your path of heart and then you will easily feel and know what is enough, within and without.
