Avoid the Weary Cycle
"…left to its own devices life would never produce love, it would only lead you to attraction, from attraction to pleasure, then to attachment, to satisfaction, which finally leads to weariness and boredom. Then comes a plateau. Then once again the weary cycle: attraction, pleasure, attachment, fulfillment, satisfaction, boredom. All of this mixed with the anxiety, the jealousies, the possessiveness, the sorrow, the pain, that make the cycle a roller coaster."
- Anthony De Mello. The Way to Love: The Last Meditations of. Image Books,1991. pg 151
