Quite often, I can’t stop grabbing at the ‘objects’ of my desire which can get overwhelming, and I end up with clouded thoughts after the feel-good chemicals wear off. The distortion then goes on affecting other aspects of my life that require a clear mind. But if one doesn’t have desires in life or can’t reach for an object to gain comfort, then what is the point of living?
A good part of my running narrative (the combined story of me and my surroundings) is driven by things or aspects that are yet to manifest, and I want to turn them into reality. Yet for some reason, they have stayed unreal for far too long while I fizzled out trying to get them over the threshold of existence.
Nowadays, I have managed to both recognise and optimise the power that desire has on my thoughts and actions, thereby regaining control of my life. The pages that follow will enable you to do the same, by first helping you to determine the power desire has over you. No matter how strong your desire complex is, you too will be able to free yourself from its grip with the insights shared below.
