Desires should never be a habit; As Sharadha maa has said we have to have higher desires in spirituality.
“Desiring to be desire less is also a desire right???"
We can explain it this way:
A shape object resembling a thorn is required to remove a thorn stuck in the foot. And after removing the same we throw away both of them. Higher desires (Spiritual) are required to eliminate the Lower desires (Materialistic) and then after enlightenment both are not required.
Being Desireless doesn’t mean one should reject the fortunes that come in the way if he deserves. We have seen many of us who desire but don’t deserve. Desire is good to be ambitious in life but not craving.
We have seen how a child behaves when it sees chocolates. It eats a couple, and then stuff one in the pocket and tries to stuff more in the other pockets. The child is in frenzy. This is called feverishness which is to satisfy our senses. As an adult we may not have this feverishness for chocolates but what are chocolates for a child is materialistic comforts for an adult. When such feverishness for objects is missing, we really enjoy the object of senses. We have to experience and enjoy but without craving for it, knowing that the joy comes form within us. The object is only a mere reflection. We can enjoy only when we understand that the joy is within and not in the object outside. This is a little profound and it clicks to a mature mind.......What say?????
