Our Mind is Greedy

“Our mind is greedy; it is always after some gain, some profit, some achievement. It goes on asking, ‘What will I gain if I go to the ocean? What will I achieve if I seek samadhi or nirvana or emptiness?’ We always ask what we are going to achieve, and we never ask – which is what one should ask – ‘How did we lose ourselves in this rat race for gains and achievements?’ On the face of it, we have achieved every thing: we have achieved wealth, power, prestige, everything. And in this very pursuit we have lost ourselves; we have completely lost ourselves. We have now everything – except ourselves.”
