Your desire is not even your desire !

Your desire is not even your desire !

Desire kills the joy yet the goal of all desires is joy. No creature desiring unhappiness is ever born; never has it happened before and never will it happen in the future.

 

You are swayed away by fleeting thoughts, fleeting emotions and fleeting desires. Actually, your desire is not even your desire. You went and ate something, somewhere, some wrong food, or whatever it was - and all that food, all those events, situations, company, everything brought a storm inside you, and you started believing that storm as your very self. That is why often you are not happy when your desires are fulfilled, or the fulfillment of your desires does not stay charming for too long. Within weeks they break down, and you wonder, why did I get into this? Or you start believing, I really wanted it, that is why it has happened. 

 

Desire kills the joy yet the goal of all desires is joy. Whenever happiness has disappeared from your life, look deep within and you will see that it is because of desires. Yet all that we desire is happiness. No creature desiring unhappiness is ever born; never has it happened before and never will it happen in future.

 

When your small mind gets tired of running here and there, of wandering everywhere, it reaches a conclusion, “My desires have killed my happiness.”
