This train of thought is not profitable, for it invites the demon of Greed. And the demon of Ingratitude. And the Demon of Discontent.
NOTE: I am not joking when I call these feelings demons. They are mean. They can RUIN your day—maybe your life. They are the ANTITHESIS of those virtues which help us live in the moment, they steel from us Now, Today, (see yesterday on the Hour of Mercy). They tear down our ability to love or to feel joy.
