Matthew Ricard: Pleasure is exhausted by usage, like a candle consuming itself.”

My two cents: Desire a noun: longing or craving, as for something that brings satisfaction or enjoyment: ie pleasure.

.

.

Fulfilling our desires does not quench the desire, in fact desire can be bottomless, never ending.

.

.

Desires are limitless. What politician has enough power, approval or money. What “Ego” is satisfied in their position in life?

.

.

Follow any desire that arises, then gets fulfilled and see that satisfaction does nothing to extinguish our desires.

.

.

After our basic needs are met, desire can be the detour that eliminates our chance at happiness.

.

.

Happiness exists in the act of gratitude and giving, not coveting our neighbors condition.

.

.

How strong are your desires?

.

.

Does jealousy or resentment live inside your current condition?

.

.

Let go of that need to possess things.

.

.


Needing others approval is a really big thing for most of us.
