from Michael Brown’s Alchemy of the Heart
How satisfied are you with your life, exact as it is, right
now in this moment?
A lot of people would have to answer that they are somewhat dissatisfied,
and in many cases intensely dissatisfied.
But even of those who answer in polls that they are “satisfied,”
it’s often that they have a mental
concept of satisfaction.
They have the things in life that are supposed to satisfy,
so they think of themselves as “satisfied.”
