Session 3 - Where Desires Come From
Where do our desires come from? Each time we want something else, like little children. Well, some of our desires come from our own physiology, from our body's need to provide itself with food and rest.
We divide our desires into food, sex, and family, basics without which we, as animals, would not exist. Additionally, although we humans lead a natural corporeal life, in which we are not much different from animals, we also need things that pertain to the human species: money, respect, power, knowledge, culture, education, religion, and many other things that we develop, and which are as important to us as food, sex, and family.
We are willing to sacrifice much of our desire for food, sex, and family in favor of more education, culture, and science. There are people who are willing to make great sacrifices to obtain money, respect, or power. They care very little about food, sex, and family, and satisfy those desires only on the necessary level.
