Pleasure Seeking Hunger

Although the pleasures of the world take on many forms, it’s the hunger of the mind that makes you seek them. This hunger can only be satisfied in stillness, because when the mind is still, the heart has no hunger…

Whether it’s weaving in and out of traffic, only to catch a red light and have all the cars that you just passed pull up along side you, or doing something and asking yourself why did you do it, the reason any of this done is to satisfy strictly some form of pleasure. That your own mind questions why you do whatever it is that you do is how diabolical it is, but understand it’s only this way because of the way it has been conditioned.

The hunger of the pleasure seeking mode is not one which is in our best interest, but the Conditioned Mind doesn’t really care about that; that it’s in control is all it cares about.

The pleasure of the world is based in lies, the pleasure of stillness is based in truth. The hunger of seeking pleasure is of the world, this is the hunger the world creates, but it cannot ever be satisfied by the world. It’s only in stillness that this hunger will be satisfied, not because it’s given something, but because in stillness there’s no pleasure to satisfy so hunger never materializes…
