Abandon not so much sensory pleasures which focus you on the present, but the egoistic joys that drive you crazy, sprinting non-stop towards that gold at the bottom of the rainbow.
Just look at the prejudiced dictators.
Just look at the power-hungry politicians.
Just look at the vengeful terrorists.
What are they seeking?
A paradise that is at the expense of others.
Thus a society that’s built upon people driven by egoistic joys soon resort to feeding and eating itself up.
The people cannibalise one another mentally, spiritually.
And so, like what Sartre mentioned:
“Hell is other people.”
For we are stepping on the bodies and souls of our fellow humans to reach for a heaven false and non-existent.
