Why You Don't Receive What You Want

The "If I could just have x, y, and z, I'd never ask for another thing" phenomenon fucks us all up.

It's something I've seen modeled in prayers throughout the media and then I learned to pray like that (even though I've never felt 'super religious').

And I believe deep spiritual/life truth is that the END of wanting/desire is DEATH...

SO...

If we tell ourselves that we'll never want another thing after we receive x, y, and z, we won't -- for the very reason of wanting life to go on -- allow ourselves to receive x, y and z.
