[00:01.50]Getting What You Want in Life
[00:05.77]There are lives that have bread in abundance and yet are starved;
[00:11.93]with barns and warehouses1 filled,
[00:14.34] with shelves and larders2 laden3 they are empty and hungry.
[00:18.61] No man need envy them; their feverish4,
[00:21.45]restless whirl in the dust of publicity5 is
[00:23.97]but the search for a satisfaction never to be found in things.
[00:28.12]They are called rich in a world where no others are more truly, pitiably poor;
[00:33.59]having all, they are yet lacking in all
[00:36.18]because they have neglected the things within.
[00:39.03]The abundance of bread is the cause of many a man's deeper hunger.
[00:42.96] Having known nothing of the discipline
[00:45.26]that develops life's hidden sources of satisfaction,
[00:47.88]nothing of the struggle in which deep calls unto deep
[00:51.60]and the true life finds itself,
[00:53.46] he spends his days seeking to satisfy his soul with furniture,
[00:58.05]with houses and lands, with yachts and merchandise,
[01:01.66]seeking to feed his heart on things,
[01:04.39]a process of less promise and reason than feeding a snapping turtle on thoughts.
[01:08.99]It takes many of us altogether too long to learn that
[01:13.47]you cannot find satisfaction so long as you leave the soul out of your reckoning.
[01:18.07]If the heart be empty the life cannot be filled.
[01:21.67] The flow must cease at the faucet6 if the fountains go dry.
[01:26.05]The prime, the elemental necessities of our being are
[01:29.77] for the life rather than the body, its house.
[01:33.16] But, how often out of the marble edifice7 issues the poor emaciated8 inmate9,
[01:38.19]how out of the life having many things comes that which amounts to nothing.
[01:43.44]The essential things are not often those which most readily strike our blunt senses.
[01:48.91]We see the shell first. To the undeveloped mind the material is all there is.
[01:54.81]But looking deeper into life there comes an awakening10 to the fact
[01:58.75]and the significance of the spiritual, the feeling that the reason,
[02:02.58]the emotions, the joys and pains that have nothing to do with things,
[02:07.17]the ties that knit one to the infinite,
[02:09.90]all of which constitute the permanent elements of life.
