Not true! It’s only true for people who live in the past (the vast majority of human beings) and do not enjoy the NOW. Travels create memories and memories are 100% past. This article also said that after a while we get used to things and they don’t make us happy anymore. But if you use your supraconsciousness the NOW is always new… and it doesn’t require anything or travel. It doesn’t require anything coming from outside. In meditation, you can close your eyes and feel happiness, the real one, the one from inside. Everything else is distraction, illusion and tourism. Tourism is the absolute opposite of supraconsciousness.
Why do many people go shopping the minute they have money in their wallets? Material wealth brings you happiness, albeit temporarily. Only a few days after a new purchase, the thrill, pleasure, and enjoyment you felt begins to fade.
It turns out that as soon as you get used to your new purchase, your level of satisfaction decreases and you feel compelled to go shopping again for the next exciting thing. This vicious cycle repeats itself over and over again.
The problem with this kind of addiction is that you are trying to buy happiness. Unfortunately, money can only make life easier and less stressful, it can’t give you long-term contentment.
