More Babbling

It's been a while since my previous post. I'm hoping that I don't only post when I have philosophical crap no one wants to read. Two things have been bugging me over the past few days. First, wanting things I can't have. Is it wrong to do so? Does it depend on the nature of the thing being desired? If it's bad, what can be done about it?

The second is losing interest in things once we have attained them. It seems as though the possession of the item isn't as fulfilling as we think it will be, and thus it almost seems more enjoyable to desire a thing than to have it. Does that make sense? I'm having trouble putting it into words. Ah well, it's just babbling after all. The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of a mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one. Thus sayeth Wilhelm Stekel. More to come soon.

    Wanting things I can't have. i don't necessarily think this is bad. It's when it comes to worshipping those things does it become wrong. i would love to have a Nissan 350z! I'll see one on the street, wow...what a sweet car! if i were to dream of it continuously, put it above other things i should worship, let it affect decisons i make, etc... that's when it becomes "sinful" note: if i ever do buy a 350z, uhhh...hurt me.
