DESIRE AND DISCONTENT

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.
