I am doing it again. I know I am. And yet I don’t want to stop. It is so easy. Just open a website, browse a bit, click some buttons and off it goes. In a few days I receive a gift delivered directly to my office. Now that is something to look forward to! Do I really need it? Of course not. That is why it is fun!
It is so easy to reach for external gratification. I don’t know if this is due to it being a habit or because it does not seem plausible that one can really change the situation without any external help. Do we really have all that it takes already within us? How come no one teaches us that? How come this is not part of our up-bringing, of our education, of our society? If it is all within us, if we have all the power we need, if we can create the life we truly crave, why don’t we?
