(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Finland, 2011)
We should understand that we are all caught here in our material bodies, and that the material bodies are dictating so many desires to us, when all these desires are not actually ours….but we are faithfully accepting them as ours!
“This is my desires”.
And we think so many times like this, but the fact of the matter is that, these are the dictates of the body. Just as a simple example of when I was ten years old, I couldn’t wait for my best friend to come and ring the doorbell and ask for me to come and play outside. If that were to happen now then he would be ring the doorbell and say:
“Maharaja, come, let’s go play outside”..
And I would look at him and think:
“Too much sun, or something like that”.
That is a fact, that we change, and our needs change very much and with it these are simply dictates of the body!
