< < Thought for the Day (342) - Saturday, April 10, 2021 > >
In sense-desire the mind craves for union with the reality outside, seen by it in the form of objects. It hugs them physically imagining that thereby the desired union is achieved. But the union can never be effected thus, for here the body of the subject as well as the body of the object stand as obstacles to the intended union. The union is never attained. But, then, the desire can also never die, for the union has not been gained. Thus one’s whole life is spent in desiring but achieving nothing.
