February 2009 - WANT: Want what you have.

This may be a lot like the "get more, want less" post, but not exactly. In the United States we have tended to have a wide range of choices of "things". As the economy goes into the toilet, the choices are becoming less. Not a whole lot less, just a little less.

Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you had what you wanted and just decided that was it? That you simply have what you have and stopped wanting more.

I don't know that this would be a good thing. Or, maybe not. Maybe you could focus on relationships or health or helping others. Perhaps it isn't all so black and white. People who have wanted things, have in some instances become the biggest philanthropists. Does this mean that if you have more, you are willing to share more.
Some times you see people with hardly anything giving to those in need. Maybe it isn't what you have that lets you share. Maybe it is who you are.

Hey, maybe that's it. Maybe it doesn't matter how much you have,but rather who you are. Maybe having is actually being.
What if, wanting more is fine?
What if, wanting nothing is fine?
What if, what you have is fine?
What if, just being is having it all?

Could it be that wanting is a state of mind?
Could it be that having is a state of mind?

Is being happy just a state of mind?

So may questions. Wish I had all the answers. But there I go, wanting again!
