It may be a car. A nice house. Kids, a husband or wife. Someone you love who actually loves you back.
It might be a dream job, a successful career. You may want to travel the world, you may want fame, you may want fortune.
Sexual exploits? Respect? A mountain of gold?
Maybe you want power. Maybe you want to dominate.
Whatever you think you want, you can have it. You can have it.
But keep in mind, whatever it is, that once you get it, it may no longer be yours. It may end up owning you.
But even that’s part of the game. We sometimes get what we want, only to have it taken from us.
Our goal changes from reaching, to holding. To keeping.
And when it starts to drift away, it turns to grasping.
In the end, it all goes back in the box.
And when it does, you may not get what you want, but you’ll certainly get what you need.
