wanting

June 17, 2010

In wanting is the suffering of  inadequacy. Paying attention to the moment when you meet someone and want something from them or listen to a story that stirs wanting you will find that behind this is a sadness, an insecurity and a feeling of lacking. Wanting something outside of yourself implies that you are not whole and complete the way you are, that you are missing something.

In nature, a pink flower looks to a blue flower. It is true that you do not have that which you are wanting, that you are not blue. The wanting blinds you to the reality that you are already perfect the way you are, that a pink flower serves one kind of bee and the blue serves another.

Allow things to enter your life and to enrich it with a simultaneous understanding that life is merely celebrating your existing perfection.
