NRR:
Given I was once again a Chinese snot breathing dragon on Northy this morning, it seems fitting to continue with the eastern philosophy.

Hinduism, like Buddhism acknowledges that desire puts us into a never ending cycle of more desire, which is not a good thing. When we fulfil it, we move on to the next desire, and so the happiness is fleeting.

"Desire is life, and the reason we desire things is because we are alive. Desire is energy expressing itself. The only way you could get rid of desire would be to get rid of life."

So if you can't give up desire, then we need to by transmuting them, to desire things that are more refined. Instead of desiring just to make ourselves happy, we desire to make our family and friends happy, too.

Right, well, um.... I'm not buying any of you Baums!
