Desires are always one more than infinity. We all desire something or the other and do strive hard to see them get fulfilled. But, the problem here is, as soon as one desire gets fulfilled, multiple desires stand in a queue making us lead a restless life.
According to Yogi Vemana, as fish gets trapped by a worm thrown by a fisherman into the water, so do we, the people, gets trapped by the earthly desires and finally get extinct. And as soon as we get trapped, we rotate continuously in a never-ending cycle in order to fulfill our desires at any cost.
For Instance, take the fish in the water, though it has got plenty of food still gets trapped for the sake of a small worm thrown by a fisherman. We can kindly consider the case of fish, as it is a brainless creature. But, what happened with us? Why do we behave foolish? Don’t we have brains to think? It is quite surprising but a fact that, we still are being trapped by the worldly desires.
Can’t we exercise control on our own desires? Yes, we can. It may be difficult but not an impossible task. To do this, we have to strictly impose some factoids on us. It is a well-known fact that, nothing is permanent in this world. Neither the body you possess nor the people around you, neither the money/property you have nor the worldly gain you had acquired. It is better to sacrifice the above foolish feelings of belongingness and better avoid possessiveness on the materialistic wealth. As we all are here for a certain span of time, we must not only utilize it to the fullest but also realize that we must acquire the wealth that gives us both the security and happiness and more over that is not materialistic viz., “knowledge of what/why we are here for?”
If we are successful in leading life in a righteous manner, then we also are equally immortal like many legendaries of the history viz., any role model of yours. Therefore, in my conclusion, I would like to remind, that as we all have come empty handed to this world and are familiar that, we leave this world in the same manner; it would be better if we do not develop any kind of lust towards materialistic wealth. Or to be content as, Harold J smith says, “Richest people are those contented with what they have”. As knowledge itself is the immortal treasure (which cannot be stolen), try to share it with others, which you had had acquired in this short span of time. Believe me, it is the knowledge what you share will keep you alive in the hearts of millions.
