Greed, this aspiration for more and more, is the greatest illusion and the cause of bondage and suffering. If we do not learn how to be content, how to be peaceful, within our own hearts, if we cannot learn how to find satisfaction, in our internal relationship with God, and experience the love of that relationship, then it is impossible to find any true satisfaction in any of our endeavors in life. It is a grand illusion and this entire world practically is simply going on under the spell of this grand illusion. However much we gain, we always want more. Krishna says in Gita that lust is insatiable. It burns like fire. Whatever we get, we always want more.
