Imagine you have a craving for something sweet, yet there is nothing in the kitchen to satisfy this craving. You go back and forth from the fridge to the cupboards for hours and the only thing you see is the jug of apple juice that's strictly for your child. You know its wrong but your desires are so strong. Ignoring that parental instinct to save for the future, for your children. So you swiftly grab the jug of apple juice and pour just a little so that it goes unnoticed. the glass you use is tall and wide, so the four or six ounces seem minute. This in turn creates a stronger desire for more. And pretty soon you completely abandon any thoughts of being a provider to becoming satisfied by consumption. The consumption of your child's apple juice. Throughout the next two days you blindly, yet, all together knowingly consume all but a mere fraction of what was in the jug to start.
And as you reach in to grab the juice once again you allow yourself to see what you've done, so you stop. Grab the child's sippy cup and pour some in it hoping to feel the grace of forgiveness from your child's mother when she sees what you've done.
Here's the point.
Imagine that life is the apple juice. The glass is the vessel of time, the ounces you pour each time are hours even days, and you are the consumer. When you purposely feel unsatisfied with what you've already received you will create a thirst that is never satisfied. You will reach out and grab up all of the life you can get and swallow it whole without caring. Yes you are thinking. Yes you thought you had to have it, you had to feel satisfied. That's your reason. The act of thinking is not the problem here, nether is the lack of it. And frankly you are quite intelligent and thoughtful.
The issue is love.
The lack of love.
The lack of feeling grateful, If you felt grateful you would not want. And you surely would not consume your lifetime up uselessly through careless acts of selfishness. taking for oneself at the cost of another, Actually, taking for ones self purely for the self when the self is not in a state of need is absence of love.
And the only way to change IS to change.
Every time you waste your blessed time with unloving words and gestures, unloving consumption and waste. You are telling the universe you don't care about life and all the blessings that are in it for all creation.
So, give to another what you want for yourself at that very moment.
Nothing wrong with learning how to love.
