SOGR - 14 - The Impression of Increase

The Impression of Increase
[ 觉得..., 有印象..., 以为...,---- 增加, 繁殖, 加大, 增进. ]

The desire欲望 for increase增进 is inherent与生俱来 in all nature自然; it is the fundamental基本 impulse冲动 of the universe宇宙. All human activities活动 are based on the desire欲望 for increase增进; people人们 are seeking寻求 more更多 food食物, more更多 clothes衣服, better较好 shelter庇护, more更多 luxury豪华, more更多 beauty, more更多 knowledge学问, more更多 pleasure愉快 --- increase增加 in something某事, more life丰富的生活.


The normal正常的 desire欲望 for increased更多 wealth财富 is not不是 an evil邪恶 or a reprehensible应该谴责的 thing; it is simply简易地 the desire欲望 for more更多 abundant丰富的 life生活; it is aspiration渴望.


The mind心灵 that seeks寻求 for mastery征服 over others其他的人 is the competitive竞争的 mind心灵; and the competitive竞争的 mind心灵 is not the creative有创造力 one. In order to master征服 your environment环境 and your destiny命运, it is not at all necessary that you should rule控制 over your fellow men and indeed, when you fall into the world's struggle挣扎 for the high places, you begin to be conquered征服 by fate命运 and environment环境, and your getting获得 rich富有 becomes a matter of chance偶然的 and speculation投机.
