Sapiens: Craving

Yesterday, we learned that our mind is in a constant state of dissatisfaction and craving. Are we hopeless and at the whim of this powerful force? Or, can our awareness of it allow us to apply it and enrich our lives?  Is being sad a bad thing? Or, are there powerful lessons to be learned in “weathering the storm?”

If you experience sadness without craving that the sadness go away, you continue to feel sadness but you do not suffer from it. There can actually be richness in the sadness.” -Yuval Noah Harari (pg.226)
