Q: Why once I get something I want, the good feeling doesn’t last?


MICHAEL:
 This is how the seeking mind is… once it gets what it thinks it wants, it’s designed to lose interest so that seeking will continue. Wash, rinse, repeat. It’s endless.

This is why no object (person, place, thing, thought, feeling, experience, etc.) can make us happy indefinitely. Because new is valued over known by the mind. And yet the kicker is nothing is actually truly knowable! Nobody knows what THIS is, as THIS has never stopped changing so there is nothing solid that can ever be known. In Zen it’s said, “To know is not really to know. To not know, is to know.”
