Well, it was just another Status update that I had posted over this weekend. Copied and pasted the words of an enlightened one, giving him due credits – no plagiarism you see ☺
“Desire is beautiful, there is nothing wrong in it — only free it from objects. Freedom from objects ! — and desire is divine.” OSHO
As I always feel after such posts, I was happy that I had posted something good, and it might float over the net to reach the apt set of minds.
To be very honest, I had not expected this to happen, but I was surprised to see a response from a friend of mine.
“free it from objects.. which means don’t desire materialistic things… then what do we desire ??”
..and it rang bells !! I am really thankful to our “thought-weaver and supplier”, whosoever he/she is (God/Nature..call it anything), that this thought sprung up in my friend’s mind. It lead me to introspect and think about this “update” – I soon realized that this was more than a status update .. much more !!
The “thought-weaver” in me helped me find some response to this. I am glad about that. Seems to be an apt one so far. What occurred to me is :
“..desire for what u derive out of those objects – desire for the ‘happiness’ , ‘satisfaction’ etc – the final ‘feel’ that u get out of an object, person, relationship etc. Let’s NOT stick to : I wanna be happy using this ‘thing’ ..or by this ‘person’…lets simply desire that ‘I wanna be happy’..this way the desire becomes limitless. Becomes easier for Nature/Almighty to help us .. lets not give him choices n options..that I wanna be happy by eating pizza… lets desire that I wanna feel that satisfaction that comes out of a lovely meal 🙂 … BTW – even I am on a learning journey – this is what I could derive from it. Hope that helped !! Cheers.”
Just thought of sharing with you all – so this note/blog !!
This small interaction changed something in me – I feel ‘enriched’ ☺
Thanks for your time to read through my friend.
