will it make us happy


...i was reading a chapter on happiness, from George Oshawa's book,
An Invitation to Happiness.... it listed the 8 sufferings of life,
as taught by Buddha

...this one caught my attention:


start_quote
....Psychological sufferings
3. Desires that attract all temptations in this world.
(Man's temptations such as seeking beautiful women,
delicious foods, delicious drink, comfortable house and luxurious car, etc.
cause anxiety, worry and unsatisfied agony in him.
end_quote



...oO( somehow the idea of being homeless, living with minimal
survival possesions, and being unburdened by #3 above, seems a relief )
