Once Amma said desire and discontent are the two sides of the same coin called life. They complement each other and form the basis of human nature. A conversation on this.
Brother: Do you experience these desires and discontents as we do?
Amma: since my life is entwined with all your lives, I do.
Brother: But what desires can you have, you-- who are above all desire? How can you experience discontent?
Amma: to take you all into my fold, to create the bond of oneness, the bond of togetherness is my desire. I experience discontent when I cannot fulfil all your desires. No one should suffer from scarcity of anything .All should have plenty, should feel contented - this is my dream.
Brother: will this dream ever come true? It will, if you so desire. It is in your hands.
Amma: If this dream materialises what else do I desire? Probably it will happen on the day that I don’t desire anything, any longer..
Brother: when will that be?
Amma: when the creation ceases.
To take you all into my fold, to create the bond of oneness, the bond of togetherness is my desire.
