Desire Encumbered

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition.

There is a hunger still unsatisfied.

Are you restlessly still unsatisfied? In the prison of your own Mind

Do you like me feel this inner burden of unsatisfactory desire that burns within even with best of efforts.

Still searching for something elusively more?

Do you get your hopes too high?

There's a hunger still unsatisfied.

Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon.

When your desire to strive for more is driven by the fear of not being good enough, you can never appreciate what you have or be happy with yourself.

As a result, you start looking for validation from other people to feel better about yourself. But the ego’s need for external validation will never be satisfied.

Practice self-awareness to break your habitual patterns and see the difference between what your ego tells you and what the reality of the situation is.

You have to get in touch with what truly matters to you.

And this brings me to a lovely rendition song by this High Hopes (Early Version) [1994 Recording] Song by Pink Floyd

It goes as follows - the lyrics goes thus:

"Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young

In a world of magnets and miracles

Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary

The ringing of the division bell had begun

Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway

Do they still meet there by the Cut

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps

Running before times took our dreams away

Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground

To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener

The light was brighter

When friends surrounded

The nights of wonder

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us

To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side

Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again

Dragged by the force of some inner tide

At a higher altitude with flag unfurled

We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition

There's a hunger still unsatisfied

Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon

Though down this road we've been so many times

The grass was greener

The light was brighter

The taste was sweeter

The nights of wonder

With friends surrounded

The dawn mist glowing

The water flowing

The endless river

Forever and ever"
