Few of us understand that seeking a never-ending production line of temporary hits from the pleasures that the world will give us in the form of ‘things’ and as experiences, comes at significant personal cost.
In exchange for fleeting, temporary and transitory pleasures, we are surrendering our thinking, our humanity and ourselves.
Moments of pleasure will never replace a constant state of happiness and the peace that we can and will attain, if and when we put humanity and life first.
When we have attained a relationship with everything and everyone outside of ourselves, based on what’s Fair, what’s Just, what’s Balanced and what’s basically good for everyone in the situation, because it’s how we would all like to be treated in that situation – whichever of the roles we might play, we will all have very good lives and live life in a very good way.
It may appear to be materially poor in some ways in comparison to what we take for granted and consider to come without cost right now. But it will be a life and way of being that is both mentally and spiritually enriched. It can and will provide a level of wellbeing that no form of material wealth will ever afford.
