Normally when we hear the phrase “nothing is enough”, the context is around desires – if you have millions of dollars, you want billions. If you have great sex, you are not satisfied for long for before longing for more. If you have a cup of Tim Horton’s coffee, you wish it was the same as it was in Canada.
When we investigate and sit with and are aware of our common and simple desires, we can acknowledge them and not be trapped by them. Desire is not a problem – the issue arises when we don’t see behind the curtain, when we think that fulfilling a desire is anything but a temporary balm that never actually solves anything.
With clarity, we find out that nothing is enough.
