Overcome desires, should we?

Read a quote (I am just focusing on desire here)

Real battle is within, fighting yourself, achieving victory over your desires, and the hell that evil can create within human heart.

But is it worthwhile to overcome desires. Isn’t desire and the hope only things which make you feel alive, makes you want to do something, make an effort. How to achieve the fine balance between desires and satiation.

Because being satiated can make you feel at rest, intent, happy. And desiring can make you full of energy, enthusiasm to do things.

One of the examples can be the way you feel about your career progress. Desiring higher opportunities can make you work hard, always giving a reason to perfect yourself, learn new skills. But satiation can make you feel lethargic.

In same situation, wanting higher things, can make you picky and irritated on your current situation. There will be always a restlessness about you. So both the situations are good as well as bad.

There is a thin line between two, and a achieving the fine balance is must for a happy life 🙂
