When things aren’t going our way or we don’t get what we want, we feel uneasy and upset. It may seem like someone or something is the cause of our problems, but ultimately it’s our uncontrolled desire.
In this series, we will use personal experience to identify types of minds that arise from uncontrolled desire, recognize how they disturb our peace, and develop beneficial desire in order to be free from suffering. This beneficial desire arising from wisdom transforms our mind into peace and contentment.
