The end of all desires, is not something consciousness really wants. Consciousness wants to communicate and express love. This ‘want’ is kind of a desire. The kind of desire that drives compassion. An internal fire. A kind of passion for life.
When I met the teacher 4 years ago, his first lesson, was about desire.
He said: “Without desire we would become like a tree.”
So our destiny is not to become
beings without a mind,
beings without desire,
beings without attachment,
beings without passion.
Perhaps our aim in life and being could be
to mobilize the forces of mind, desire, attachment and passion
at the service of love and compassion.
