Craving

A posed question

What in life is permanent?

The standard answer would be “nothing”.Nothing in life is ever permanent — things come and go in waves. It arises and it ceases.

Then I observed my cravings today. And I realise that cravings come and go. My craving for fast-food, my craving for ice-cream, my craving for yoghurt, my craving for many other things.

So it occurred to me that there is something permanent after all and that is craving.

Then another thought surfaced: was I really craving after the objects per se or was it just…craving of craving?

  1. Hi Rohit,

    Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. First I’ll start with watching myself. Then the world.

    I’ll agree with your view on change as permanent.

    The problem I have is internalisation. Walk the talk.

    People (me included) still find it hard to deal with change. Words, when spoken, can only do so much.

    Thanks again for your time.
