“DESIRE AND GREED”
Desire is based on the recognition of “lack” and arises from the illusion that “if I get something, I can experience more than I do now.”
Greed comes from what the ego is addicted to stimulation of the brain reward system.
Desire also can develop to the point of greed.
Therefore, once we’re addicted to stimulation in our brain’s reward system, it becomes very difficult to stop it by willpower.
It is possible for anyone to stop it by some reason in temporary, but it won’t happen any change that fundamentally changes our behavior.
Those who have experienced addiction, and are recovering, know that fundamental change begins when we ourselves are connected to the innermost silence and get back our own spirituality.
Because both desire and greed unavoidably have extreme narrow visual field from the point of the ego and mind that recognize, and the mind can’t clearly observe ourselves because of our powerful judgment by values.
If you’ve ever wanted something and you’ve got it without observing it in detail, choose “don’t get it” once by the connection to your innermost silence when you want it. And observe what kind of emotions or thoughts you will experience at that time. How strong is the desire or the greed, and what kind of emotions or thoughts come from not being able to get it? Just observe them, then you will be clearly able to notice something you have never been aware of so far.
Then you’ll spontaneously see a different choice and will find yourself who is able to make a different choice. Simultaneously, fundamental change will happen in you.🙏💗✨
