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 the fact that acquisition of anything ALWAYS brings 2 things…..
1. Attachment to the acquisition(s).
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!!
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!
Agreed???…. …or not???? Either way, please share your view(s) in the ‘Comments’ section below. 😄
