It is not the desire/wish itself that has caused the suffering; it is the BELIEF that your desire/wish needs to be shown HERE in the physical world
for it to be enjoyed or valued.
Because the imagination was put into the meaningless box by most people, it hurts when the desire is not in physical reality and it therefore feels
Have as much desire as you wish! Play it out in your omnipotent, omnipresent mind! Have fun with the desire, but if you think that it MUST be in
physical reality you will feel "lack".
thinking about it is the first mistake. or identifying with that which desires.
life would flow on without any desires from the excessive concentration on the personality from where they arise. needs that arise would be attended
to. eg: food, drink.
if desire arises it is preferable to just observe it and not get caught up in it. it is of the mind and you are awareness/consciousness from where the
mind takes its power.
errors/pain/pleasure arise when we identify with body and mind. a calm mind reflects the bliss that we are.
it is the subsidence of desire after gratification that momentarily calms the mind and allows reflection of this bliss.
soon after, more desires clamour for attention and disturb our calm.
i dont see the mind as omnipresent; if it was then no "fun" could be experienced from another source. there would be no enjoying, no enjoyer and no
enjoyment which three belong in duality.
i dont see desires as divine. the divine just IS.
