Desire is the root cause of sorrow. So said Gautam Buddha. So what do I do with it? How do I deal with the unceasing flow of desires in my mind. Just one silly insignificant desire can cloud your intellect, infuse your whole body mind complex with feverishness and kill your peace of mind.

Of Course there are many solutions. One of my favourite one is "Remembering the sauda (deal)". Once Guruji said,"Just think of it as a deal. You do my work I will do your work". As I keep doing His work it is amazing to watch how HE does my work.

Now the question is does he fulfill all your desires and the answer is NO. Once someone asked Him do you give us whatever we ask for? He said ," NO. Sometimes I give you something even better." So as you are doing his work if the desire still stays unfulfilled just have this faith that either its not good for you or the time is not ripe and better still He is planning to give you something much better.

One who has this faith is relaxed and happy.

    I remember someone telling me once that one has to first grow wise enough to know what to ask Him. At this level, you don't often understand what is good for you.

    he does my work much better than I can do myself, so its better I do his work (no better work than his anyway), I wonder why he's okay with such an unfair swap.

    very inspiring....
    problem starts when u r in a situation and your desire is not getting fullfilled.... from third persons view one can say this...when u say it at the moment your desire is fullfilled it sounds lame.... it only sounds lame but otherwise it is deep
