Desire creates a coloration that distorts reality and prevents us from attaining that higher level of consciousness which results in inner peace and harmony, peace of mind. Once the desire is fulfilled, another desire is born.
One is drawn to others on the spiritual path not to fulfill desires only but to join with another soul in working together towards the light. This kind of soul connection is quite divine. It is not found through fulfillment of desires.
In fact, this preoccupation with desires, e.g. sexual desire, can block what the soul is truly to receive. Then one can meet the wrong person but because of desire, assume the person is the âtrue love.â Desire only begets desire and misery follows.
Put attention on the Divine, the love of God, and place all desires at His feet. Only then can the judgment of the mind in such matters become clear.
One thinks one is in control of one’s desires but in fact one is driven by desires. Really one can make a big mistake by following one’s desires.
If X is hankering after women, money, prestige, whatever it is, have compassion. No judgment. He will not find true peace as long as mind is not under control. This is for everybody.
First face the inner self and practice TAPA with all strength of being. Increase Yajnya. Release all negative feelings and resentments. Very quickly you will be filled with love. This is the greatest of all healing agents.
The shape of the Agnihotra pyramid should not be interfered with. Now we have to be more subtle with YAJNYA. Time is crucial. Times are desperate. In order to get the optimum effect from Agnihotra, the shape of the pyramid should be intact.
