Words of Wisdom

My good friend occasionally sends me some "words of wisdom" and I thought that this one deserved to be posted.

"In Buddhism there is the Wheel of Life, and one of the segments deals with the Hungry Ghosts. They are emaciated beings with long thin necks, tormented by unfulfilled cravings and insatiably demanding of impossible satisfactions, searching for gratification for old needs whose time has passed. They have uncovered a terrible emptiness within themselves, and cannot see the impossibility of correcting something that has already happened. They remain obsessed with achieving complete release from the pain of their past and are stubbornly unaware that their desire is fantasy. "

I think that this could serve a lot of people quite well.
