Needs can be fulfilled, but desires cannot be !👐
This window is my need and that wall is the desire.
Why not this wall as need and window as desire?
Because that window is giving the freedom to see life on the other side. But that wall will not. I can sit their for hours and see the birds;feeling the breeze and welcoming the sunlight.
And that wall will never allow me for that.
desire is a need gone mad.
Needs are simple, they come from nature; desires are really complex they don't come from nature. They are created by the mind.
Moreover, needs are moment to moment, they are created out of life itself. Desires are not moment to moment, they are always for the so called 'future'.
They are not created by the life itself, they are projected by the mind.
Desires are projections, they are not really needs.
This is the first thing to be understood, and the deeper you understands, the better. ✴➰🤞 So, this was "NEED vs DESIRE" for you.

What is your need and what you desire for?
Let's try to filter the two and make life a bit simple. .
#humility is a modest or low view of one’s importance. And it’s often so lacking in the world we live in. People are bragging and boasting, exalting themselves, trashing others in their bid to hustle and makes moves. Others are often collateral damage in meeting the needs of many. How about knowing our inner strengths, knowing our talents and quietly going about business and affairs being mindful of others and being grateful for the gifts we have?
Last week, I had a lot of people deciding on what I ‘should’ be doing or ‘could’ve’ done. But I’m the person who has jurisdiction over my own life, God and the angels too (my personal faith for which I never push on other people because that’s their business). In meddling in other people’s affairs, we are distracted from our own. It’s so important to just keep our side of the street tidy, and it’s for others to look after theirs. Today, I am quietly going to go about my business and be grateful for the small mercies and simple things because all I can do is my best, act with humility and be humble for the beauty I have all around me. The beauty that so I often I don’t see because I’m locked in to my own thoughts or I’m fighting battles that others orchestrate and I lose time trying to justify myself. This week I will be bringing it home to me and just getting on with things. #personaldevelopment#12steps#liveandletlive#keepitsimple#mondaythoughts
I absolutely love nature’s summer bounty! This heirloom tomato salad with grilled halloumi cheese, garden basil and golden balsamic reduction was so simple and refreshing at our dinner table tonight. #missbaychef#keepitsimple
