I recently took the challenge of freeing myself from desires. You know, like you read on those ‘quotes of the day’ things. In the process of doing so, I felt I was starting to fade; like the life force that kept me alive was slowly disappearing. I felt sluggish, tired and was ill all the time.
Analysing my own experience I came to understand that not only a life with no desires is not worth living but also that desires are not as evil as I thought they were.
