The mind agitation that the next thing will make one complete is what keeps one in the constant mode of the chase; a chase that will either end because this is realized or because life in this forms ends.
I will be complete when this happens next? The next fix, the next satisfaction, the next whatever is used as next. What’s next goes on to infinity, it never ends until it’s realized there is no end and one will always be chasing that which is already here. But who is the chaser and why all this chasing? Either there’s completeness now with the way things are or there isn’t. Chasing the next whatever it is that ones thinks will bring utopia never ends because there’s nothing to truly attain that will end the chasing. The Conditioned Mind will tell you different and that’s why there’s chasing, but what one really needs to ask is, who is the one doing the chasing and why? The fictional character of this self that’s been made up to think things need to be different for completeness is just that, fiction and this is who and why there’s chasing.
The self that makes up this nonsense that there’s one who is incomplete is just a story of incompleteness and this is what keeps when chasing. The dream of attaining a certain status, the next promotion, the trophy partner, the next book, the next, the next, the next whatever keeps one in the constant mode of the chase, a chase that will either end because this is realized or because life in this forms ends. The chase will end one day, but in which way that will be is determined if one spends their entire life chasing that which is already here or stops the chasing because it’s realizes there’s nothing to chase because one is already complete.
