Our fatal curse is the desire for what we lack and the neglect for what we already have.
The difficult is that we seek more, or greater, that what is logical in a sober mind. We want grand experience but when we experience something magnificent we want something greater. Nothing is enough for us. There will always be more than what we have.
In this effort, we neglect the things that we have. This can be evident by acquiring items and just throwing them in the closet when our mind forgets about them. Eventually we wonder how we have a closet full of things. That’s because we are always seeking more – it doesn’t particularly matter what, just that we have more.
There’s a fire we must extinguish. Our desire must be leveled and we must love what we have. We must wait for things to wear and for repairs rather than replacements. We must find this place within ourselves.
