Feeling Better

If you’d like to know how it is that you can be very outwardly successful as far as society is concerned, yet still feel miserable on the inside, here’s some insight. The nature of your mind (the ego part) is that it always functions as a “wanting” mechanism. It will always want some feeling that is better than the one you are feeling at this moment. This will be true even if you become a jet-set millionaire, your mind will still convince you that being a jet-set billionaire will be even better. Along the way, you continue to convince yourself that when you achieve this or that, then you will feel satisfied. However the nature of your “wanting mind” will never allow this to be so, never. After 20 years or so of achieving, every person eventually comes to a point and wonders why they are so unsatisfied when by all accounts they have everything. Now for the first time you become aware that you are outwardly rich but suffer from inner poverty. The only way out of inner poverty is to turn your attention to nourishing your soul, to find ways to connect to your inner voice which has been drowned out by the noise and false promises of culture. The only way out is to start walking your own path without regard to how you will be perceived. I have found that Meditation is a good first course of medicine that will help you find the inner richness that you didn’t realize you needed until now. – Albert Pellissier
