There’s an old saying that goes something like; “Happiness comes, not from having what you want, but instead, wanting what you have.”
We have been lied to. And we are the biggest suckers in the last thousand years. 99% or more of those that have lived on this planet in those past thousand years have lived well below the poverty level.
It’s human nature to desire the best, but with the availability of everything, we are convinced that true happiness is just around the corner. All we need is to get to the next level… just a little more shit. A better car, a bigger house, new tits, a boat and a cabin and a flat screen television, not to mention those really cool shoes that we saw on MTV, with those few little changes we’ll be able, at long last, to truly enjoy the blessings that this life has bestowed upon us.
However, if we get these things they are often outdated as soon as they get home. Or, we need to go into hock to get these things. Or, the worst scenario of all, and the most common, we go into hock for things that we quickly tire of and then it off to the races. The great American “rat race” that is! More shit, more debt, more stress, more therapy and meds, which leads to self-examination. Only we don’t have the time to truly examine ourselves so the quick fix is that sweet vacations that we can’t afford and of course…just a little more shit. A better car, a bigger house, new tits, a boat and a cabin and a flat screen television, not to mention those really cool shoes that we saw on MTV, (That noise you are hearing in the back of your mind is you screaming at the top of your lungs, because your head is on fire!)
