Sathya Sai Baba

If the number of passengers in a bus is within the permissible limits, travel is safe. On the other hand if it is overloaded with people or luggage, its owner has to pay the fine imposed by the Road Transport Officer (RTO). Similarly, if you overload yourself with food or desires, the Officer of Virtues, will impose the fine of grief and ill-health on you; you might even be penalized by the Break Inspector, for lacking sense control and speeding up. Hence moderation is very essential for happy living – be it in food or desires. An overloaded truck driver will find it difficult to drive it up a steep-hill and at times, the consequences can be disastrous. If you want to progress and maintain good health consistently, it is imperative that you must not over indulge yourself. You will not be able to attain the elevated stage of bliss, if you eat more than what your body needs.

- Divine Discourse, 'My Dear Students', Vol 2, Ch 2.

We must control our desires. Do not waste money, time, food, resources and energy. - Baba
