The real hunger we feel…

220px-Greed,_1924,_06_banchetto

“The attempt to satisfy greed is
like drinking salty water when
thirsty.
When lost in greed we look outward
rather than inward for satisfaction,
yet we never find enough to fill the
emptiness we wish to escape.
The real hunger we feel is for
knowledge of our true nature.”

~Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche~

  1. So true. It’s easy to get sucked back into thinking things outside of us will make us happy…. :) Ahh how many times I’ve had to learn that lesson, and no doubt, will still learn it again hahha :) Great quote! With love, Sharon
