Beware of Destination Addiction
We have ALL fallen prey to Destination Addiction. That loop we get into where that thing we are striving for will bring us happiness. No matter if that thing is esoteric—say, enlightenment—or material—say, salary—or some combination of the two, the destination becomes a fixation that will solve all of our problems.
Except obviously it won’t. Until you give up the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where you are. Let happiness be where you are.
