“ Whatever has its origin in desire is a disturbing element, for desires are like stones pelted into the calm lake of consciousness. ”
When a man completely relinquishes all desires of the mind and is entirely contented in the self, by the self, he is then considered to be settled in wisdom
Completely renouncing all desires arising from material thoughts, one should restrain the senses with the mind from all sides
The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat.
That person realizes peace who, relinquishing all desires, exists without craving and is unidentified with the mortal ego and its sense of "mine-ness."
In meditation, try to go beyond thinking. As long as thoughts enter the mind, you are functioning on the conscious level.
