My parents want to gift me a hefty pricey phone for my birthday on 11 March, and as I am in love with gadgets logically, I should grab it with both hands. But for some reason I feel like it’s a waste of money when my current(not so advanced) phone is working well and good.
This is giving me some strange feelings. All the time, I am focused on acquiring things, this and that. Refusing this phone, feels very natural to me.
I feel that it won’t add much value to my life.
As this all is happening around me, I have a sense of wonder, what if someday I feel that about everything I own in life. What then?
What is important?
What is that adds value to life?
Why do I desire things that I desire?
Maybe I want a lot of things to fulfill my ego, to feel superior to others.
This brings me to another question now, is there a way to make all desires as irrelevant like this one?
and if these things are not important, what is?
What is that which actually adds value to life, that makes us happier, more alive?
Have you ever felt something like this in your life?
