What You Truly Want

 A lot of people of fame and wealth are unhappy because they finally have what they think will make then happy and it doesn't do it. The vast majority of people are on an endless search for some thing. They want a better job, more money, a bigger house, fame, a better body, a better sex life, a better looking spouse --- the list is endless. If you never get what you think it is that will make you happy, you can justify your unhappiness by saying "well if I only had that." 

A lot of these people are angry at God because he is not delivering the goods. The thinking is that if he loved them enough, He would give them what makes them happy. Do you see how the responsibility falls outside of them? They do not want to look at the possibility that happiness is their responsibility, nor do they want to look at the possibility that they already have everything which will make them happy and joyful. 

Many of those who get what they want in terms of money or fame are depressed, because they have achieved what they wanted to, and it has not made them happy. They cannot continue a search which has ended. This is why you see so many who are addicted, because they try to numb the depression and pain. What they are truly looking for, what we are all truly looking for, is God's Love. Being in communion with Him is what gives us joy. 

Regardless of the outer circumstances --- whether you are rich or poor, old or young, black or white, president of the US or a homeless person --- you already have everything you need to be joyful. There is no search, because joy is intrinsic. It does not depend on anything "outside" of you, because all of this is temporary and fleeting. The fame, the money, the new house can all go away tomorrow. But your relationship with Him is eternal.
