There’s Always A Price Tag

James Hadley Chase books had some of the cheekiest titles. One of them was also philosophically profound: There’s Always A Price Tag.

Nature ensures that every desire carries within itself its own poison sting. Greater the desire, deadlier the sting.

The desire for Enlightenment is also a desire. But just look at the magnitude, the sheer audacity, of this particular desire: notionally, nothing less than eternal bliss will do.

No wonder these fellows are referred to as “miserable” seekers.
