Whatever status you have achieved, whatever material acquisitions you have, whatever pleasures and desires you have fulfilled will never be enough if you do not realise the true nature of your existence and of your surroundings.
There are people who have everything in the world that others can only dream and long for, and yet they are still unfulfilled. There are people who are struggling to make ends meet, yet their very existence brings joy to others. Whatever disparity there is amongst the human race, the unfulfilment that one has , if any, remains the same regardless. Rich or Poor, Successful or not , they are just labels. The contentment that we are all driven to look for seems like an impossible reach as long as we keep going around in circles in our worldly pursuits, in what we call "living a life".
If all our desires are fulfilled, if all our wants and needs are met, how come unhappiness still pervades? If society tells you that success and all that brings you happiness, how come after achieving it, you still don't achieve that level of happiness you thought you could? Happiness is something so easy to relate to and find in worldly terms, but how long does it last? Achieving it is easy, but finding true lasting happiness is the real challenge. But of course, there is a way to everything. And in this case, the way to it is through Buddhism. Don't believe me? Start reading and practising. Then you will come to see and feel the difference it will bring you, just like a torch that will brighten up your life.
