46:   THE “AGE OF ACQUISITION”!

The “Age of Acquisition” is upon us….
…with a vengeance!!!

Some of the most overworked words(and emotions) these days are:-  Have; get; want; need; desire; acquire; and many others with similar meanings…. most of them usually attached to the word, “I”.

The majority of people still equate “acquiring/having” things (or even people and /or their approval) with happiness and contentment. 

WHEN WILL WE EVER LEARN??!

Learn what???….

Learn the fact that acquisition of anything ALWAYS brings 2 things….. 

1. Attachment to the acquisition(s). 

2. FEAR!!!! 

Fear of what??

Fear of the loss of the acquisition…

This is 100% likely if we have formed a clinging attachment to it/them. 

Fear of the loss of something/someone/some situation, to which we have attached our happiness, is INFINITELY WORSE than not gaining that acquisition in the first place!!

GUARANTEED!!!

Because…..

If our happiness is invested in something/someone/situation…. (all of these being things which can be taken from us!); our happiness WILL go with them!

FACT!!

Agreed???…. …or not????  Either way, please share your view(s) in the ‘Comments’ section below. 😄
