Are you a rat?

The problem with winning the rat race is you’re still a rat.Lily Tomlin

We are all like rats aren’t we? We go milling about, with our nose to the ground (and grind), just like rats, looking for that elusive thing or person that will truly satisfy our deepest desires.

We satisfy some desires, are never deeply satiated, and move on to the next thing! We repeat this process while enjoying some bliss, enduring pain and experiencing loads of worry and anxiety.

  • To what end?
  • What’s our goal?
  • Till when?
  • What’s next?

What would happen if the rats stopped, looked around, even looked above? What’s the way out? Lot’s of questions to ponder and ruminate on!
