Is the world running on desires? I think yes. Maybe we are all being driven by a desire to be better. But is that what desire is about? Getting better? Or is desire a dream? A dream that is driven by hopes which may or may not fruition. Buddha had so much to say about desire and all of it is true. Time has nothing to do with what he said. Desire is eternal, it is ageless. It may be one of the only things that remains the same , holds the same face even in times of great transformation. There is always a desire. Always. Even when there are no desires there is always a desire to not have desires. Or at least a hope that prevails .
