The Nature, the Means, the Desire, and the Release from temptations

The body has its nature. If the body wants to sleep you have to provide it with rest. But, what do we do if the body wants to sleep? We put on the television because of an interesting movie, and then start eating without been hungry; we are working against the nature of our body. Don’t go against your nature, when your desire someone who don’t like you and don’t fit your nature, culture and emotional intelligence you don’t need to be hard on yourself, just let go and follow your true nature .Don’t go against your nature .

Suppose the body has a desire to eat and even though you have eaten, the desire has not vanished. Your stomach is full, but the mind wants you to eat, so the desire to eat still remains. Can you relate to this situation? This is where willpower comes in, the release from desire need a well power, training, just like when you fast from food for 30 days in Muslim culture , it is struggle between the nature of the body, the desire , to release . Follow your true nature .Don’t live in fake reality, be yourself and allow your nature to guide you with your spiritual growth.

When you drink lots of water and you are very tired, you go to sleep you will dream that you want to release your bladder in so many scenarios, some people do it in their sleep and most wake up in the last minute to go to the washroom to release. Our body have the ability even in sleep to work with our desire and release, to work with our stress and give us stress reduction ways ,and we can learn alot from our dreams

If there is no co-ordination between these faculties of nature, desire, willpower, and release, then life will be a total chaos. As we see in TV the nature of human is the need for respect, justice, fairness, good opportunities .Then the police and US legal system took that away from some people due to many reasons following human negativity of hate and discrimination and the desire to have only certain nations, certain color and culture, certain people you will have in your hand a negative and bad release of anger, violence, destruction, killing, and total ciaos

It will be a misery. When there is co-ordination between the four faculties, the desire and the nature are coordinated. The means and fulfillment are co-ordinated. Liberation can be taken to mean fulfillment. Suppose you have a desire to go to by a new and expensive car, or to b a doctor, or get the person you love. But, your desire is not co-ordinated with your means. You have no willpower, no money; you are not romantic enough to that person, and so on.

A farmer who raises chicken and then they hatched, he took the eggs to the market so he can sale them. He put them all in a basket to take to the market. It was quite some distance to the market. Usually the mind does not keep quiet. The farmer started daydreaming as he was walking along. He began to make various plans what he would do with the money that he would earn by selling the eggs. He imagined that he would become so rich if he can do that daily.

He daydream more and he thought that his friends would respect him a lot when he will get richer.  He would give his family more money and improve their lives. And he would be able to just relax and lean on a chair doing nothing and let others sale his eggs. While dreaming he dropped both his hands and all the eggs fell down and were cracked open on the street. He did not even reach the marketplace. He was so sad and upset.
