Desire and Duties

Desire gives us pain whatever the desire maybe. The freedom is when we are desire free. Its strength, its power and it happiness.

Desire should not be confused with a goal.

A goal is not the same as a desire, and this is an important distinction to make. You can have a desire you don't intend to act on. But you can't have a goal you don't intend to act on.
-Tom Morris

When people are troubled, I tell them to let go of desires and concentrate on your duties.

Whats my duty? I ask myself this question and life is simplified, focussed and responsible.

Our duty, as men and women, is to proceed as if limits to our ability did not exist. We are collaborators in creation.
Teilhard de Chardin
