To Want or Not to Want

Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing.” — Sylvia Plath

Which do you find more dangerous: wanting nothing, or wanting everything? ~ The Daily Post

 

Tell me what you think, is it possible to want everything or to want nothing?

If I said that I wanted everything would that make me greedy? If I were to get everything I wanted would I run out of things to want and therefore, want nothing?

If I wanted everything would that mean what I really want is not really ‘everything’ at all? What if I did get everything would that also mean all my deep inner needs would be obtained? Therefore, I would now want for nothing?

If I were to tell you that I wanted nothing, would you believe me? How can a person today not want something? Don’t we need to want for food and water in order to survive?

But if I had wanted everything and got everything, would there be nothing left to want? Would I then want for nothing?

What if I didn’t have much yet said I wanted nothing, would that mean I am happy with what I have? Or would you think me depressed and suicidal?

Is it even possible to not want anything at all?

Where do you think the danger lies? Or should Sylvia Plath keep her secret?


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s Where I Want To Be

If there is a place where one can live where no one judges you or others; where they don't point the invisible finger and say, “I heard this about you, or, “this” or “that” about you; where you can live in peace and harmony and be happy with who you are. That's where I want to be.

If there is a world where everyone respects one another, where there are no wars or no fighting, no evil, and no judging. That's where I want to be.

A place where I can go and there is no baggage on my back, no skeletons in my closet, no gossip around each corner, no “better than thou” attitudes, that's where I want to be.

In this world we are all so busy judging others that we don't have time to be making changes to ourselves to become a better person. We are busy gossiping about others and probably adding a little bit more to the tale to make it even juicier. We are busy hiding our own imperfections while callously pointing out the imperfections of others.

What would happen if everyone in this world started being only concerned about bettering themselves?

What would happen if we all stopped being so critically judgmental of one another?

Would your space in this world be better?

I know mine would.

If this world cannot be such a place, then I want to find such a place because that's where I want to be.
