discontent

The primary cause of our discontent is the incorrect and misguided application of our will. If we have the courage to admit and accept the full implications of this contention, it then follows that certain basic attitudes about who we are and how we relate to the world will have to be reconsidered. Not because they might be wrong, but because they don’t work. The opinions and principles which guide our system of values, and the manner in which we think about and process events in our daily life are no longer appropriate or useful. Our life must be subjected to a radical and comprehensive revision.

This is frightening, as it should be, but there is no shame in it. We are to embark on the most difficult challenge of all; the task of changing who we are.
