don't mean to be a buzzkill (let me put on the flame suit) eliminate desire, and enter new reality brb.... Sorry still here on this side of the universe trying to make sence of it just like every1 else. Don't get me wrong I use 2 live by that philosophy for a good part of my life, but the way I see it now is that life without desire is a life without meaning, without motivation. I am not talking physical tangible desire, I speak of the desire to live, to create, to expierience and learn.
I guess what I'm trying to say is loss of desire is loss of motivation is loss of incentive is loss of change which makes an individual stagnant and oblivious to the bigger picture. Forgive me if I miss interpreted the op. Nevertheless it did prevoke deeper thought from me S&F

You know, the only thing I know is that according to the bible there are 144.000 men, who didn't let in with women and remained virgin that will ascend. But the difference is they know whereto, and that is to heaven to Jesus. They will be like angels.

I have seen quite a few threads concerning the end of desire now and I wanted to know something.
If one were to get rid of desire, why are the people who believe in this still living? You surely wouldn't eat and be concerned with going on in life here on earth as it requires desire or the will to live. If you still eat and drink then you have desire. Like someone else had said earlier, the desire to not desire is still a desire. Desire is part of life and it can be enjoyed so I don't know why so many want to get rid of it when you can't unless you kill yourself but even that is done out of desire to change something in your life.
Maybe someone can clear this up for me as maybe I'm misunderstanding the concept.edit on 23-1-2013 by Ralphy because: (no reason given)
