Feeding the fire, fuel will only make it burn brighter.
From our childhood, till we say good bye to this world, we are always running after something, wanting this and that. When we were kids it was a chocolate, a pencil box, better grades. When we grew up those petty things got replaced with a good spouse, better job, lots of money etc.
The moment we got what we wanted our mind raced to the next want and we have been fueling our inner fire with the fuel of wants.
So lets pause this crazy need to fulfill our wants and desires, be contended with meeting our needs and divert all the energy we save towards building a better soul.
