I want

davidherbertlawrence195202

If you don’t get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don’t want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can’t hold on to it forever.”
― Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes

I want,I want ,I want ….I want that and that and that …..I wish I have that and that and that !!!!So many wants ,wants and so many demands that could drive anyone crazy……Oh ,boy ;Valentine day :flowers,chocolate,cards ,romantic holidays ,jewelery and the list could become endless……As I sat here, though, I realized that you can get used to certain luxuries that you start to think they’re necessities, but when you have to forgo them, you come to see that you don’t need them after all. There was a big difference between needing things and wanting things–though a lot of people had trouble telling the two apart–and in here, I could see, we have pretty much everything we’d need but precious little else.I remember ,as a kid I wanted one thing at the time ….and don’t take me wrong,…lots of things were tempting ,delicious,beautiful ,but for well known reasons I ve just got what I needed and that was pretty much enough at that time ….but I never stopped dreaming ……
I want ,I want ,I want……I thought myself awake when I was already asleep. I saw the stars above my face, whirling on their silent and sleepless axis, and the leaves of the trees rustling against them, and I heard small changes in the grass. These little noises of footsteps and soft-fringed wing-beats and stealthy bellies drawn over the grass blades or rattling against the bracken at first frightened or interested me, so that I moved to see what they were (but never saw), then soothed me, so that I no longer cared to see what they were but trusted them to be themselves, and finally left me altogether as I swam down deeper and deeper, nuzzling into the scented turf, into the warm ground, into the unending waters under the earth.I want pretty much everything….I want knowledge …I want power…I want love …I want more and more and more and I want it all …no deals ,no compromises ,just I wanted all….Part of me wanted this more than anything else in the world—to have someone to hang out with, be like everyone else for a while. The rest of me screamed to get the hell out of there, not to get sucked in….I want that and that and that….Because of the society we live our need for security has led us into an insane attachment to things. We really must understand that the lust for affluence in contemporary society is psychotic. It is psychotic because it has completely lost touch with reality. We crave things we neither need nor enjoy. ‘We buy things we do not want to impress people we do not like’. Where planned obsolescence leaves off, psychological obsolescence takes over. We are made to feel ashamed to wear clothes or drive cars until they are worn out. The mass media have convinced us that to be out of step with fashion is to be out of step with reality. It is time we awaken to the fact that conformity to a sick society is to be sick. Until we see how unbalanced our culture has become at this point, we will not be able to deal with the mammon spirit within ourselves nor will we desire simplicity.Then we want love…. Attachments ,strings ,luggages ,pain ,sorrow.joy …I want to build you a house with my bare hands and carry you over the threshold. I want too cook for you every evening and bring you tea in bed in the mornings. I want to read with you in front of an open fire, sipping a glass of wine. I want to drive you to the beach and lie next to you in the sun. I may not be a man of means, bit I want to take care of you as best I can!!!!!! Its so lovely ,isn it ???? Between the natural way and the path of grace there is a deep abyss. It is in that gap that we live our lives as a giant struggle between good and evil, Satan and God, despair and love. Whenever despair wins, it is the natural way. Whenever love wins, it is a moment of grace. When love is victorious and defeats despair completely, you’ve reached the path of grace……
And what, are those things that are dear to me? Are they not bubbles? Is not ambition but an endless ladder by which no height is ever climbed till the last unreachable rung is mounted? For height leads on to height, and there is not resting-place among them, and rung doth grow upon rung, and there is no limit to the number.”
So its not point just to want ,,fulfill your dream and dont live a life full of regrets 🙂
