Why Do You Feel Empty After Getting What You Want?
Welcome to the endless cycle of desire.
The momentary “ahhhh” you feel after fulfilling a desire is not because of the thing itself.
It’s because you are momentarily without desire.
Until the next one arises;
How can I prolong this?
How can I make this happen again?
How can I get something that really makes me happy?
And so it goes on.
Don’t cling to, strive for or reject.
Desire is momentary pleasure at absolute best.
Truth is infinite peace.
You have turned on a light here, keep looking…
