Do you agree that people are never satisfied with what they have? Why do they always want more?
I totally agree with the question Seckin Esen. I think we are so trained and accustomed to a spoiled and materialistic way of life that we can't help but to never be satisfied. I'm not sure of your faith or beliefs. But, look at Adam and Eve. They had all of the trees, land, time to talk with God whenver they wanted and they still messed up. They couldn't leave just one little tree alone. Nope, they had to have more, more, more.
We need a reason to live for another day. (Something to look forward to)
"A life without dreams isn't living only existing"
The mind requires constant stimulation, that is why we are always looking for something new.
The nature of desire is that it wants more when it is satisfied, so it is never satisfied. Once you get overstimulated with one thing, you get numb and require something stronger to fulfil that same desire.
The best option is to observe our mind and whenever a desire for something arises, that is the only way it is going to dissolve. Suppressing desire will only strengthen it.
I agree that some people are never satisfied and always want more. This is because some people take life for granted and had never taken the opportunity to be grateful for what they currently have instead of constantly wanting more.
This is human nature.
Always hunger for more than what you can get.
But at times, this is good while other times, it is bad. All depends on situation.
After going through a near death experience this last year, I ask myself the same question. Everything I need in life isn't materialistic things, its my wonderful family and friends and that I am alive and living life to the fullest. I wake up and I am one happy woman to be here.
