37 Desires



 
Nature possesses no desire at all. It merely does what it does. It wouldn’t be difficult to imagine that a person without desire would be at peace, or would they be? Is desire always negative? We have to have a desire to live, to eat, to survive. Some desires are essential. Some desires dress up as essential, but really aren’t. They perform a great masquerade and perform their trickery on us. The problem is many of us never bother with an unmasking before committing ourselves to whatever it is they are offering. We are more than happy to be drawn to the pleasant without bothering or wanting to look behind the fa├žade. How unfortunate this can turn out to be.
