Filling lives with activity

People who fill their lives with goals, accomplishemnts, achievements, people, and hobbies – they pursue lives full of activity and goals.

But as they pursue lives that are so full of activity and goals, most people are not fulfilling their being and often they are not fulfilling their purpose either. Often they don’t necessarily feel happy.

By feeling the need to fill up every moment to appear productive and to appear they are making good use of their time they are running away from am deep-seated fear that life is empty unless you constantly fill it up. And if you constantly fill it up with all sorts of things, you leave no time for other things which may be important – things that open the way to inner peace and happiness.

– Deepak Chopra (paraphrased)
