People's desire for sex, #relationships and all that is such a downfall when all their energies is focused on this mainly. Their whole #energy and mind is consumed with this until their mental 'winds' go off either temporarily or fully or permanently.. When their true friends and people who love them are abandoned and neglected because they only pursue this.
When their work and duties, #spirituality, commitments, spiritual promises and works for the betterment of others are neglected for sex, relationship, chasing, intimacy and all that. It is tragic when our only concern in life is something as fragile as this. Then all that we treasure, love and all those that love us gradually are lost. We lose them, hurt them and abandon them or they finally go away.
We in our blind chasing even forget the #kindness, #love, #generosity and care we have received. We can somehow justify in our mind to avoid our #conscience and #humanity. We lose our logic, humanity, senses, #gratitude and kindness in the pursuit of this elusive fake #happiness.
Eventually whoever we are chasing or we are with will leave us or we leave them. All the emotions, time, energy spent is wasted. We see this and must realize this and rise above this. We have to rise above and not chase for the sake of #pride, #ego or deep #loneliness. Deep loneliness will never be cured by a partner, sex or relationship. Never. It will only increase it.- Tsem Rinpoche
