At the root cause of all misery is a feeling of ‘Not enough’.
‘Not enough’ perpetuates greed. Like an insatiable weed taking over a forest, it causes us to overeat, accumulate wealth, status and other shiny things at the expense of the people around us.
‘Not enough’ drives us to procrastinate by dangling a mirage of perfection in front of our eyes. Despite hours of tireless striving, it leaves us with a hole that cannot be filled. It sends us to bed with a brain racing with thoughts only to wake up tired.
‘Not enough’ is an infinite void because it is a creation of our minds. The only means to address it is to lean into every moment, every action and every day by recognizing their completeness.
‘Enough’ is a state of mind.
