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.
