ABC WEDNESDAY "D" is for "desire"

Buddha said that the cause of all unhappiness is Desire. If you cannot have something, you become frustrated and unhappy. I desired this lamp when I saw it in the window of an Indian/Asian shop downtown.

I am happy (Yes, I am!) to say that I no longer desire this lamp....because I bought it....

It is true that the lamp itself does not make me happy; my friends and family do.

But I DO enjoy looking at it...

See more d's at ABC WEDNESDAY.

Great word for D day, if desire is not kept in check, we could ruin our life and health. Glad you are enjoying your Desired Lamp.

Ah, the perfect blend of Eastern and Western philosophy. You made the right decision - and took a beautiful photo.

I Don't know about Desire, but it is cool looking. Wondering how big it is and will it fit in an RV. ;)

A lamp! LOL, I was wondering why the Buddha was glowing when I saw the thumbnail in the portal.

Although I am a Christian, I find other religions' beliefs speak to me and give me much peace. This is one.
