We are constantly battling, inside of ourselves, and those around us in the struggle to want more. We often have a self depreciating feeling about ourselves when we want more or we see the in other peoples eyes a totally focused, unwavering assault on the object of their desire. In all truth it is possibly one of the most distasteful traits we have as human beings. Greed in our world seems to be the root of all evil, from the leaders of our world to the person that looks back at you in the mirror in the morning, we all have it.
But if we look back and see how we have, as a race or civilization, come to this present spot in time, it is this trait that has driven us to great achievements, scientific discovery and, in some cases, wonderful humanity by helping each other. Because the fact is it is human nature, part of our DNA to want more and one of the things that has helped us arrive at the point we are today. But like most things about us, it is the balance of enough to progress and too much that it becomes destructive is where we always, as individuals and as a species, have a problem.
I personally believe that you should not be too hard on yourself for wanting more in your life; it is in your nature. I also believe that most people can achieve this balance and today we see that it is not the masses that have a problem with this balance but the few who have a lot, yet seem to want more. It takes a lot to push a human being to the point where they put their lives on the line to have the basics in life, but beware to those who push them to their limits; for it is in our nature to want more and we can be unstoppable in reaching it.
