Unending Desire

We might have so much, almost everything,

And yet we pine for the only thing that we cannot have!

Is it just me or the human nature after all?

  1. Yes it’s human nature..but it varies for everyone…some won’t get satisfied,some stop after getting what they want..but everyone want something..because we are humans and we have desire..soo but we have moniter and keep limits.otherwise we will end up in hell of things

  2. Like Gandhi said there is enough and bountiful left for our needs but never enough for our greeds,it’s just basic human nature to crave for the forbidden fruits and pine for those that we don’t have ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    1. I understand, that stop has to come now for me. That desire has to stop. That urge for wanting it all has to come to an end, else as you say there will be no contentment.
      Thank you for your wise words dear.


  3. its a chain, right?
    the fulfilment of one desire leads to creation of another, the more you think or work about it, the more involved one gets in the worldly affairs, I guess that’s why ascetics don’t have desires or at least they don’t want them fulfilled!!

  4. There are times when we don’t value things we have and we need things beyond our reach, though for that moment. And once we get it we need something else.. the desires continue.. like the small child who will desperately cry for a particular doll, u buy it an give it then in two days he does not even look at tat..

  5. It’s just a human-nature that’s never satisfied with things we already have. The more we have, the more we “pine” for things to have without acknowledging & understanding much about those things, perhaps, sometimes, we gotta have what we gotta have. So it’s cool, however… it’s a sign of one’s vulnerability – the lack of patience. Even me myself find me in the same juxtaposition of life.. and may be, that’s the very reason that i along with my heart… we both still keep wandering through the meanderings of life… in a hope to get something resided in everything what we want, but the harsh truth is, we hardly get what we really want. And that’s where our expectations get broken which further make “everyone” (including me either) lost in their “Unending Desire”, telepathically. Quite a post uve come up with, Moushmi. It just got me think about life!

  6. Thank you so much for stopping by.
    It is a human nature indeed! You said it all, we keep getting disheartened when we don’t get what we want, but that’s life! We can never be satisfied, right!
    I ma glad I made you think, that was the point of the post. Plus it must have given your over working mind a break to think on something else.


  7. It is the human nature. We like to rest our hopes on something unachievable. I believe it is the only thing that makes us different. Apparently, we never remain satisfied with what we have gathered. We will be having a lot of time to appreciate the things we have gathered in our lifetime, maybe the desire for more is what pushes us forward while we dwell in the present.

    The post was thought provoking ๐Ÿ™‚
