We have a desire to pursue things for many reasons. We go about doing that all day long and throughout our lives. Besides going about the normal activities of trying to make a living, it would be wise to examine our motives in regards to other things we are doing. Anything done in excess should be studied for a potential flaw
YOUR REALLY NOT THAT HUNGRY
How many times do you find your self hungry and wanting to eat during the day? How many of us over eat to counter stress or to feel better? Many even seek food even after they have eaten usually pausing in front of their refrigerators looking for something more...It cant be food because you just ate.
SOMETHING IS MISSING
How about having a reasonable run of success and as soon as you have the reward in your hands, you are planning more of the same not savoring the one you just had but wanting more and more.... thinking that it is the right thing to do. It is not the only thing to do however
MATERIAL THINGS CAN GET ADDICTIVE
Perhaps you are into toys and having all the neatest stuff and before long instead of them serving you, you are now bound to them and you cannot stop. What part are they filling in for you beyond doing the job you purchased them to do. If it is an addiction, something is wrong.
FEED THE SOUL
You see within your self is something that requires food not of this world. If it doesn't get fed, it sends out constant reminders to do so. Your muscles, brain, five senses and emotions all get fed pretty well...but what about the spirit inside of you? It needs nourishment too...lots of it!
BEWARE OF SPIRITUAL ATROPHY
Do not try to substitute what it requires with other things because while it works temporarily, the long term is neglected. Just as you neglect a muscle and it starts to atrophy, so it is with your spirit to if it doesn't get fed. It becomes dull and starts to devolve getting worse as you grow older...
LIFE AFTER DEATH?
If the spirit travels on past the life span given to us here, then equip it for a journey that will fair well. Feed and activate its needs now and it will serve you now and... later too. Even if you don't agree, there is no harm done from pursing things other than food , shelter and clothing. Look into this please
ACTIVATE THE INNER...NOT THE OUTER
The treasures lying within you are waiting to be of service to you. Seek them out for a full life experience and may you journey at optimum...sucking the marrow out of life as you do...
