The Fourtth False Belief: If all of your desires are fulfilled, you will finally be happy.

Not true.

In fact, it is these very desires and attachments that make you tense, frustrated, nervous, insecure, and fearful. Look at your list of your attachments and desires and to each of them, say these words: “Deep down in my heart, I know that even after I have gotten you, I will not get happiness.”

Ponder the truth of these words. The fulfillment of desire can, at the most, bring flashes of pleasure and excitement.

Don’t mistake them for happiness.
