The Absence of Desire is the Beginning of Happiness

By Kacper Potawski

If you look closely, all your desires are actually like mirages.

An illusion you never get to that makes your life into a never-ending, non-fulfilling story that only keeps you wanting more.

When you're walking in the desert, and you see the image of a lake, you thirst. You keep walking after the lake, but the more you walk, the more you thirst, the further the lake gets away from you.

And your thirst is never quenched.

This is the same insane madness that most of us live our lives in constantly... constantly wanting something else to be fulfilled. Constantly thinking about an imaginary future that will bring salvation.

This is "normal life"... as it seems.

After all, it's what your parents taught you to do... It's what everyone else is doing...

But, essentially, it's madness! Because you keep going somewhere...and... You never get there!
