A sick person only wants one thing

A healthy person wants 10,000 things.

Everyone gets sick once in a while, even if you don’t, you know someone who does. And what’s the one thing you want when you’re sick? What’s the one thing they want when they’re sick?

To get better.

But then you get better and life starts again. The wants come back in. The desires flood back in.

And then there’s the oldest wisdom there is. You know it. 

Desire is suffering.

The more desires, the more suffering. 


Remind yourself of the last time you were sick. What did you want then? That’s what matters.
