April Blogging Challenge- 22




V is for Vicious Circle of wants
 
I had read at school, “Man is a bundle of wants”. At that time I wondered what it meant but as I grew up I realized how true it was. It all begins with one want, where we work hard day and night to fulfill it. The moment it is fulfilled we don’t feel joyous rather we feel another want has already developed in our heart making us want more and more. It keeps on continuing as it is a vicious circle from which we don’t have any escape.It is like a miraculous pit which the more you keep filling the more it keeps getting empty asking you for more and more.

  7. I think it is a sort of self fulfilling prophecy. Man is told again and again that he is a bundle of wants,that his wants can never end. I somehow don't agree with that. In fact as we grow older, our wants actually decrease.

    1. Could be Shail but I have examples around me in their 70s who are still having a wishlist which is lengthier than mine :)

  8. Reminds me of that old story of 7 pots, one of which would never get filled. It's true that it's all about wants, people who manage to give it up lead such a fulfilling life.
