In the world, there’s a constant push for more, more, more. More in terms of materialism and more in terms of escapism. It’s centered around the pursuit of money and entertainment. These are the things we think will make us happy. They do help, to a degree, but we tend to overdo it.
What we really want is peace. We tend to search for it in the next thing we buy, or the next promotion, vacation, relationship, etc. But the secret is to appreciate what we already have. And to go within. To quiet the inner chatter and switch off the inner movie screen we play our fantasies on.
