Let’s Chat About Desire…🧿🧿🧿

article image placeholderUploaded by @Dee94
Is there something you're going to achieve by fulfilling this desire? Is there any sort of tangible or intangible evidence that it's going to be worth it in the end? Yeah. I'm struggling with some thoughts right now, but I just want to open this up for a conversation. Are there any things that you've wanted in life that were just not worth it once you got it or something that you feel like, very worthwhile for going after and trying to achieve?

I got a question for you. Can there be desire if there's not something or someone? Like an object, a subject and object. Right. Like, can desire exist without that configuration? Like, if there's no duality, is their desire

Thanks for responding and posing such a good question. I feel as though if there's no object to be attained or to be strived for, then there isn't any sort of desire. I guess subconscious that's my only kind of resolution for that being possible is that subconsciously you might desire something underneath what you consciously desire. Like, for instance, let's just use drugs as an example, addictive drugs or somebody who's in an addiction

I know there are things in our lives that we desire that aren't attainable or aren't possible for us to get. But isn't desire a driving force for us wanting a better job or wanting a better situation for yourself? That's a desire that you want, that is attainable. That kind of would be like a driving force to change what you're doing or work harder at something or go out there and try to get what you want

Great question to think about @Dee94

Hey, D, I saw this earlier today, and I was like, I gotta make sure I go in there and respond. This is a very interesting question because you bring up a lot of things, right? Like, bring up the question motivation. You bring up the question of what is your ultimate goal? And then you bring up the question of what drives your desire? And then I guess the last thing would be like, what is the point, right?
