Blessed Baba, we are all in this world to fulfill our desires, but what happens after we fulfill all our desires? Well i think when you come to the point when you are starting to fulfill the desires of others, you have truly come to spiritual enlightenment. Why? Because you are starting to realize the ONE truth, which is that we are all one, and that fullfilling the desires of others is fulfilling your own desires. Whereas if its all about YOU, you are still stuck in the illusion that you are a seperate entity trapped in time and space. Thank you kindly, Euphoria
You are right, when you feel for others and can empathize with others, you feel a different kind of happiness in your heart that is unparalleled.
But there is yet another side of the story, every individual comes in this world with a bag of seeds of desires. They all fructify in its own time and space. But as they manifest as you go through the fulfillment of the desires you come to experience pleasures and pains. That is most important in human life, it is only through the fulfillment of all kinds of desires that you grow more matured and wise.
To realize that we are all One, it needs a deeper practice of inner purification through prayers and meditation, self-study and company of the Wise. Till that realization dawns through the Grace of God, the expansion can not happen.
Once you are connected to the Source Within, and by Divine Grace learn the art of functioning from the Inner Self, what ever you do to others, is not your doing any more, even the desire to serve others is a direct inspiration from the Universal Self and the good happens through you without you ever claiming to have done any good to anyone in this world. Thus you are not fettered by the desire which is always born out of the ego and the conditions of mind.
To be the instrument of the Universal Force for the well being of every sentient being on earth is a fulfillment of life’s dream indeed.
You are such a blessed soul to feel the need to unfetter yourself through service to others and experience true freedom from the grip of shackles of desires.
My love and blessings ever with you,
