Why do we cling to things?

I find the concept of treasure to be interesting. The first impression for most people I assume would be a dragon sitting on a hoard of gold and gems. Or maybe a movie with you-know-who sailing the high seas seeking closure. There are friends, family and memories to celebrate and cherish. This is a basic human need, yet many philosophies and spiritual practices revolve around the need to let go of things and people in order to reach stability and peace. I understand the concept of simplifying in order to achieve inner tranquility, but there is a difference between casting aside all possessions and having balance in your life. Treasure those things that make life better and give away items that are a burden. Each breath is a gift, use them to help not harm with words that are heartfelt and worthy of being treasured by others.
