Desire

Desires are conative states of mind that are expressed by terms like “wanting”, “wishing”, “longing” or “craving”. A great variety of features is commonly associated with desires. They are seen as propositional attitudes towards conceivable states of affairs.

Is desire good or bad?

Desire is a feeling and nothing more. It is your brain’s way of telling you that you are missing something in life. Contrary to what some people think, desire can actually be quite a good and necessary part of being human. … It is at this moment that desire becomes harmful to others and to yourself.

Desire Is Not Bad

Desire is not the enemy to a happy and balanced life. It is not a roadblock to experiencing a higher self. In fact, desire can often be the driver for all that greater awareness and consciousness we so often seek.

A student recently asked me if desire was bad.

Let me be clear — it is not.

Desire is a feeling and nothing more. It is your brain’s way of telling you that you are missing something in life. Contrary to what some people think, desire can actually be quite a good and necessary part of being human. The desire for knowledge, the desire to help others, the desire for a better life, the desire to become enlightened are all very powerful drivers to becoming the person you were meant to be; what I call becoming a divine human.

Desire is not the enemy to a happy and balanced life. It is not a roadblock to experiencing a higher self. In fact, desire can often be the driver for all that greater awareness and consciousness we so often seek.

It is not desire that is bad, it is the lack of checks and balances that can turn a healthy emotion into a self-destructive one. When desire is driven by the ego, that is when we start to undermine our happiness and our well-being.The desire to win at any cost, the desire for better products regardless of who is harmed in their manufacture, the desire for sexual fulfillment when it is predatory or pursued for self without regard to others — these are examples of when desire is allowed to override logic or love or respect. This is also when desire can lead you into dark territory. It is at this moment that desire becomes harmful to others and to yourself.
