when the desire has passed
then the story ends.
Who’s to blame if all begins with lust and desire? From the desire to satisfy the physical desires and the desire to have. It may even be a worship of matter and greed.
In this case, for any reason, we are not victims. Even Lao Tzu says, “There is no greater crime than desire.”
There always been a paradigm war between the wise and the motivator of material success to prove the essence of purity and greatness of ownership, simplicity, and luxury, between “no desire to desire” and “powerful desire”.
I’m not advocating any choice, but what do you think?
