Food for thought Distinguish personality desires from soul needs

Post by Candlelight.kk on Fri 10 Jan 2020, 17:41


"Human history is the sad result of each one looking out for himself."
-- Julio Cortazar

We indulge ourselves when we seek to meet our longings through desires of the personality. We indulge ourselves when we buy more clothes to make us happy, when we eat another snack to ease the hunger, when we have an affair to feel powerful or loveable. Any pleasure we get, if we get any at all, is shallow and short-lived.

The only lasting satisfaction can come from meeting the deep spiritual needs of the soul. We discover what we are really after in life when we identify the spiritual qualities and needs that lie behind our desires for material pleasures.

"But life lived only for oneself does not truly satisfy men or women.
There is a hunger in Americans today for larger purposes beyond the self."
-- Betty Friedan
