Do not desire anything.

Posted in Uncategorized by K P Ramachandran on August 30, 2015

It is better not to desire any thing. The cause of all miseries from which we suffer is desire. If there is no desire, there is no suffering. But, we all desire for results. When we do not get desired results we feel sad or depressed. 

The old proverb ” Man proposes, God disposes ” by Thomas A Kempis from the ‘Imitation of Christ ‘; and the message by Lord Krishna to Arjuna in Chapter 2.47 of Bhagavad Gita , ” you have the right to work only , but never to its fruits; let not the fruits of actions be your motive, nor let your attachment be to inaction ” are relevant here.

If you desire for results , it can bring miseries if your wishes are not complied with. When we climb stairs of success and reach at the top, we may find that the place we reached is not the one you desired. This is life. Hence, if you want to be happy do not desire any thing, be contented with what you have or what you get.
