Fulfilled desire may provide a sense of temporary satisfaction; however, the pleasure we experience upon acquiring a new car or home, for example, is usually short-lived. When we indulge our desires, they tend to increase in intensity and multiply in number. We become more demanding and less content, finding it more difficult to satisfy our needs.

Dear Anonymous,

Healthy bowels are important. Please continue to read "Heart of Glass" regularly so that you can be regular. A regular regular so to speak.

Eventually, you will let go of your bitter resentment towards Blenko and Milton and learn to love your town. Hate on milton, you hate yourself. Through love of place you will find love of self.

If you let go of this anger and resentment, you will be a happier person. We will keep you in our hearts (of glass).

I go only to the places you write about.
On line I adore the shop owned by the Blenko Museum guy and Purple Moon.
Do you need a link? You first told me about these.

Hilary is too nice to say what you need to hear, but I am not.
Constipated lives, are common among those lacking any spiritual connection.
Anger, frustration, self hate all traits.
If Heart of Glass is responsible for relieving your bowel imagine what viewing the dali lama on U Tube could do for you.
ps Surprised to listen to Andy Rooney that audience is considered to be of average intelligence.
