.Desire is quite a lovely thing. We have a need for something; an “empty hole”, let’s say, and we get it. Desire solved.
When a question is truly answered, there is no more question. Question solved.
However, we all know it doesn’t quite work out like that. When was the last time a question you had was truly answered and you were content with the response. I bet hardly ever, especially if you’re of the questioning type.
More often than not a supposed answer to a question itself can breed more questions. “Is that right?” “Ok. well what about this…?” Instead of satisfaction actually the exact opposite has occurred; more answers are being demanded from your state of confusion or at least, your state of “not knowing”.
What don’t you know? You mean to tell me that you are perplexed by the situation of things around you?
You are discontented, dissatisfied with the things around you...why do you choose to be confused about the things around you?
You might respond “well of course I’m confused, there are a lot of things going on around me and in this world that shouldn’t happen and I don’t know why.”
Well, you seem not to understand yourself first of all. You do not realize that if you cannot control the things around you, you can control yourself and your responses to the stimuli.
Perhaps the greatest line in the Bible comes in the 23rd Psalm: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…
I fear no evil.
You are in control of yourself and yourself only, be contented by the fact that you cannot control others. You’re not supposed to.
When the whole world realizes themself, then, there will be no problems. The pursuit of controlling others will cease when there is only yourself to blame.
