THINGS CAN NEVER BRING YOU JOY THAT LASTS!!

You spend your life or energy or talents chasing things: the more you get, the more you want. They never fulfill their promise of happiness. Its a pretty cruel ruse once you really think about it.

You get the car you have been dreaming of for years and after a few days, you are already thinking about the next one. You move into your dream home or get your dream job and within a couple of weeks, the attraction has faded and the sparkle has gone. Its no longer exciting. Your attention moves on to the next desire.

What i have experienced in my life is that things can never bring you joy that lasts!! 

I want to be incredibly clear: there is absolutely nothing wrong, in my mind, with having, collecting or wanting nice things. They make the climb to the mountaintop more pleasant.

I guess what i am trying to say is that perhaps the key for us is not to worship them. Not to get hooked by them. Not to be enslaved by all the things material.

Enjoy them. Just dont get caught in the trap they often set.

So yes, own things. Its a human hunger. Get the shiny objects of allure that call out for your attention. And once you own them, enjoy them. 

But dont let them own you. Possess them. Bt dont be possessed by them.
