The Paradoxes of Life - What we want is what we don't want

What we think we 'want' is exactly what we don't want. Or at least what we think we don't deserve anyway.

If we badly needed it we would have got it already. But by keeping those things in the 'want' list we keep looking at them, doing everything we can to not get them. All our actions, all our thoughts are against getting it. They will perpetually be in the 'want' list.

It is better to let this 'want' list go and save some energy for yourself. You could divert it into things you need. The shorter and more focussed the list, the better the chances of getting those.
