An object of desire is whatever we would like to have or to ‘be’.
The subject, (s)he who desires, is the person who wants to acquire the object of desire, or already has it, or the person who already ‘is’ it.
Wanting to be something usually has to do with status(job, position,…), fashion or personae(the masks we wear). Wanting to be enlightened is not different in any way.
The possession of the object of desire often leads to being attached to it.
The attachment itself is the source of the fear of losing the object.
Pride is often the initiator of an unhealthy desire. To be proud to be or to have at least as much, and preferably more, than my family or my neighbour or my colleague.
When the object of desire is with someone else, then envy might be the result.
When the object of desire is present, avarice (treasuring, not using and certainly not sharing) or greed (always wanting more of it), or both might be the result. There is also the possibility of addiction (an unhealthy focus on use, becoming abuse, disregarding the integrity of the self). Pride of achievement, acquirement or possession might be another result.
When the object of desire is present but under thread, fear and jealousy possibly followed by anger might be the result.
When the object of desire is lost due to another agent that can be blamed (person, circumstances, …), permanent hate against the agent might be the result.
When the object of desire is lost, anger or sadness might be the result.
