Two kinds of Desire »

Friends:

The Advantageous & the Detrimental!



There are these two kinds of Desire:
1: Advantageous Desire for unbinding, for release, for peace, for Nibbāna...
Why is this form of desire advantageous ?
Because it leads towards ultimate safety, freedom, and lasting Happiness!



2: The Detrimental Desire for forms, for body, for feelings, for perceptions,
for mental constructions, for sensing, & for the various types of consciousness.
Why is this form of desire detrimental?
Because it leads to repeated births, ageing, decaying, sickness & repeated death!
Because it leads to sorrow, lamentation, pain, distress, misery & desperate despair.
I tell you, because such desire leads to Suffering...
These are the two kinds of Desire!



There are these two kinds of Disgust:
1: The Advantageous Disgust towards forms, towards body, towards feelings,
towards perceptions, towards mental constructions, towards sensing, towards the
manifold and various types of consciousness, towards all internal and all external ...
Why is this form of disgust advantageous?
Because it leads towards ultimate safety, final freedom, and lasting Happiness!

2: The Detrimental Disgust towards friends living the Noble life, towards morality,
towards meditation, towards understanding, towards right view, towards right
motivation, towards right speech, towards right behaviour, towards right livelihood,
towards right effort, and towards right concentration...
Why is this form of disgust detrimental?
Because it leads to inevitable rebirth, ageing, decaying, sickness and repeated death!
Because it leads to sorrow, lamentation, pain, distress, misery and desperate despair.
I tell you, because such desire leads to eternal Suffering...
These are the two kinds of Disgust!

Comments: Emotional Misguidance!
The autopilot monkey-mind runs towards  any desire, even if it is catastrophic...
This same folly also runs away from  any disgust, even if it is advantageous!
