Desire When there is no desire, all things are at peace. ~Lao Tzu What is the root of pain? Ignorance of yourself. What is the root of desire? The urge to find yourself. All creation toils for its self and will not rest until it returns to it. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj What any desire really aims at, is a state of non-desire. This non-desire is a state in which we demand absolutely nothing. Thus it is a state of extreme abundance, fullness. ~Jean Klein Desire fulfilled only for a moment gives you a relief, and that relief has also to be understood. In the moment of a fulfilled desire there is relief. There is relief because in that small moment you are desireless. Desirelessness is joy. When one desire is fulfilled and before the mind projects another desire, between the two there is a small interval when there is no desire. That moment is of meditation.~Osho Desire gives you suffering. Whenever any desire arises, you want to go near it, you want to achieve it and you do, then you are happy. You may think that the object made you happy, but really it is the absence of desire, that moment of emptiness, that makes you happy. ~Papaji The moment all your outer seeking stops, the moment that you have understood the futility of desire, the futility of ambition. In that state of non- ambitiousness, desirelessness, truth is revealed. ~Osho When the mind is no longer seeking, no longer breeding conflict through its wants and cavings, when it is silent with understanding, only then can the immeasurable come into being. ~Jiddu Krishnamurti Liberation cannot be desired because desire is bondage. When you are desireless, you are liberated. ~Osho When the veil which does not exist is lifted, then you will have Bliss and Love. The veil never is, it is only your desire which hides your true nature. ~Papaji In your hopelessness is the only hope, and in your desirelessness is your only fulfillment, and in your tremendous helplessness suddenly the whole existence starts helping you. ~Osho The very desire to get rid of desire is still desire, is it not? ~Jiddu Krishnamurti Why desire at all? Desiring a state of freedom from desire will not set you free, because you are free. See yourself with desireless clarity, that is all. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj If we go down into ourselves we find that we possess exactly what we desire. ~Simone Weil The desire to know your own Soul will end all other desires. ~Rumi Embrace the light and let it guide you beyond the winds of desire. ~Rumi Everything is complex and everything is simple. The rose has no why attached to it; it blooms because it blooms, has no thought of itself, or desire to be seen. What could be more complicated than a rose for someone who wants to understand it? What could be simpler for someone who wants nothing? The complexity of thinking, the simplicity of beholding. ~Andre Compte-Sponville People who do not need to please are irresistible because they radiate wholeness, a rare delicacy in a world of hungry hearts. ~Alan Cohen Contentment is a state of grace, a state of peace and happiness, appreciation and enjoyment for what is, right now. Desires, in contrast, can never be satisfied. Once we get what we crave, we soon find it less satisfying than we expected, so we strive for something else. The only escape from this perpetual wheel of want is to discover the contentment and perfection we already have. ~Gillian Stokes Naked, I seek the camp of those who desire nothing. ~Horace As long as you have certain desires about how it ought to be you can’t see how it is. ~Ram Dass To get rid of your passions is not Nirvana; to look upon them as no matter of yours, that is nirvana. ~unknown The greatest wealth is a poverty of desires. ~Seneca Desires are just waves in the mind. A desire is just a thing among many. I feel no urge to satisfy it, no action needs be taken on it. Freedom from desire means this: the compulsion to satisfy is absent. ~Sri Nisargadatta Ultimately, one loves one’s desires and not that which is desired. ~Friedrich Nietzche What we really desire is not the object, because if it were, its possession would eliminate all desire. What is desired is bliss, which exists at all times in myself and everything. The realisation of this bliss was lost to me when I became a separate ego, thereby losing sight of my essential identity with it. ~Jean Klein People say “I want peace.” If you remove I {ego}, and your want {desire}, you are left with peace. ~Satya Sai Baba Desire is an insatiable beast. It never gets enough. ~Sivananda Radha Desire is adopted as a pain killer. Every desire is an attempt to evade the unknown. ~unknown I have the greatest of all riches: that of not desiring them. ~Eleonora Duse Want, or desire, arises when you are not happy. Have you seen this? When you are very happy then there is contentment. “Contentment” means “no want.” ~Sri Sri Ravi Shankar “Want” is always hanging on to the “I.” When the “I” itself is dissolving, “want” also dissolves, disappears. ~Sri Sri Ravi Shankar We must force this insatiable desire within us, which is always oriented towards outward things and has its domain in an imaginary future, to close in on itself and bring its main thrust round to the present. ~Simone Weil So the unwanting soul sees what’s hidden, and the ever-wanting soul sees only what it wants. ~Lao Tzu The state of craving for anything blocks all deeper experience. Nothing of value can happen to a mind which knows exactly what it wants. For nothing the mind can visualize and want is of much value. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj One who is attached to the world thinks renouncing it will relieve his misery. One who is attached to nothing is free and does not feel miserable even in the world. ~Ashtavakra Gita
