Desires and Expectations: Q&A with myself

What are desires? What are expectations? How are they different? Is it possible to do anything in a perfectly objective manner, without any desires?

Wise men say free yourself from desire and you will be at peace.

I believe that expectations are good. Desires are bad. But how are they different?

Desires result in a deep hunger in your heart and mind. Expectations produce a warm glow. It is difficult to live with desires but very easy to live with expectations.

It is possible to do things without a desire?

Yes it is!

Is it possible to get rid of expectations?

No it isn’t!

When you worship god, you may not have any desires. But expectations are always there. There is an expectation of positive feedback.

Learn to differentiate between desires and expectations, wants and needs. You will always be happy!
