No content to write, nor content with life

I do not live in the war-torn region of Lebanon/Israel.
Nor I have any connections in Baghdad/Tehran.
I don't have to take the Subway to NY or the trains in Mumbai to get to work.
I do not subscribe to the "Religion of Peace" to feel the stress in the West.
I am lucky to be born; to the north of Palk Straits.
More so to have escaped the Grandfather's rule there.
I was not affected by Katrina or Rita.
I pay no state tax.
Yet I feel life can be better.

Greed or Motivation?
Be it either. It doesn't seem to have an end.

Want more and more.....
I mean buttermilk. Heading to my refridgerator...

1. Motivation, yes.
When one has to sleep on the bare floor, one wishes for a mat. When one has a mat, for a bed. A bed, then for a more comfortable bed. Why? Because man is relentlessly in the pursuit of happiness. And happiness is not having money, a great family etc alone. It's the urge to reach the Source(from where you came), that's why the pursuit seems endless. So you're going in the right direction. Kudos!

2. If it's greed, not a very good sign. The vedas say -Reduce your wants and have desirelessness as the prime goal of your life. When you slowly assimilate this teaching into your daily life, maybe you'd have more happiness, cos you'd have fewer wants.

Read- India's walking saint;: The story of Vinoba Bhave.

May you find more peace and love.

AA,
Glad you are still visiting the blog. "Your comment" is exactly what I had in mind while writing. Btw. more in Tamil means Buttermilk, if you did not understand the last line.
