BE CAREFULL WITH YOUR DESIRE


When a man has given up the desires of his heart and is satisfied with the Self alone, be sure that he has reached the highest state.

When a man dwells on the objects of sense, he creates an attraction for them; attraction develops into desire, and desire breeds anger. Anger induces delusion; delusion, loss of memory; through loss of memory, reason is
shattered; and loss of reason leads to destruction. But the self-controlled soul, who moves amongst sense objects, free from either attachmentor repulsion, he wins eternal Peace. Having attained Peace, he becomes free from misery; for when the mind gains peace, right discrimination follows. Right discrimination is not for him who cannot concentrate. Without concentration, there cannot be meditation; he who cannot meditate must not expect peace; and without peace, how can anyone expect happiness?
