We are fickle creatures, easily distracted and dissatisfied, constantly chasing after this and that to quell our ego’s insatiable hunger for new, more, and better.
The problem with insatiability is that no amount of new, more, or better will put an end to our dissatisfaction.
So we continue to seek distractions, moving from one thing to the next, over and over again for the remainder of our days, always seeking and never satisfied.
Unless we can shift our focus from new, more, and better to something more stable, more consistent, and more permanent, we are doomed to live and die in this endless cycle of disappointment.
Finding and tapping into that which is stable, consistent, and permanent, that is the difficult part, but we could do worse than to start by looking deep within ourselves.
