Everybody are striving hard to fulfill their own desires as the day starts like Somebody wants to look beautiful, to have six pack, to have loving husband, to come first in class, to learn music, to be a doctor, to experience the Self etc. Why are we all having desires? Is it to be happy in life at their individual five levels? We would do our best when we choose and follow our Dharma and nature.
Our final goal is realizing the Truth but where are we all leading to in our paths of fulfilling our limited desires?

Happiness is the state of the Self. Even when we are ignorant of the Self, we want to be happy. No matter whether we are selftual or non-selftual everybody seeks happiness. Desires comes due to ignorance of the fact that happiness is the nature of Self. This leads to desires of seeking happiness through means other than the Self. So we start to enjoy only happiness through body's physical senses and emotional mind and to a certain extent through the intelligence.
Then one desire fuels another desire and we make our journey long and cyclic (Samasaara Chakra).

Our final goal is realizing the Truth but where are we all leading to in our paths of fulfilling our limited desires? Inquiring the mind of its purpose of desires is a way to decelerate the desires. Doing all actions as duties will further decelerate and finally declutching the doership in actions from actions will bring a final halt in the karmic journey.
