“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”
― C. JoyBell C
Since our birth, we have been needing and wanting. At first it’s mostly needs. We need food, shelter, caring. As we grow, so do our wants. More often than not, these wants grow out of proportion. we want more and more, despite what we get. And many times, our parents give in just to keep us happy. I just wanted to remind you all for not taking advantage of that. To keep our wants in check.
We don’t need our wants, so don’t want soo much. Want only as much as you need.
Without realizing, we are walking down a dark path where our wants overshadow who we really are.
So come to your senses. Keep yourself in check. Set realistic wants and be sure to want more only when you really need more. If you do want out of proportion, check if you really earned it. Only if you did do you deserve to get what you want.
Our wants go on increasing like an Amazonian Tree.
I hope that reading this post of mine, many of you realize the importance of the message I’m trying to pass. Be it you’re a parent or a child or a grand parent. It doesn’t matter. In all spheres, you have a role to teach and learn and spread this message in the best way possible.
We must grow in our lives more productively than just based on our wants. We must work hard to earn each reward. Only then will we realize it’s value. Only then will we learn to appreciate it’s value.
Life is growth. If we stop growing, technically and spiritually, we are as good as dead.
– Morihei Ueshiba
The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.
– Lao Tzu
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
– George Bernard Shaw
