The catch at Svadhisthana Chakra is the short duration of the satisfaction in comparison to the long period of craving. At the level of consciousness of the second chakra, success gives short satisfaction, after which the restless imagination wakes up, invents a new goal, charges a new object of desire, and enslaves man until it reaches it, to receive again but a short satisfaction, until another childish desire awakens and tortures him again.
People who live life through the second chakra are lacking a center, and they live their lives around other people, be it their family, their leaders, their bosses, their idols. They search for meaning in orbiting others. People at this level are like satellites and they need an external center to give meaning to their lives.
