Emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fulfilled

I tried to capture how Helen diagnosed Bruce's unhappiness with philosophical clarity and atheistic pessimism principles in my reflections today. Schopenhauer connected us to deal with such a complexity created by generation gaps and other myriad of factors!

I'd repeat the question here considering you may like to share any privileged knowledge or insights that you obtained at your younger ages which you still use in your life for awareness, fulfillment and enlightenment!

What do excessive boredom at emotional and severe pain at physical level mean to you or amount for us?

Who can challenge Schopenhauer's conclusive analysis formulated as "emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fulfilled"?! Enough food for thoughts for Sunday to put us in a better perspective in big schema of things.

Regards,
Mehmet Yildiz

Emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fulfilled

"emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fulfilled" I go with Doctor-Das, who says that each fulfilled desire breeds 1,000 new desires. That would mean that I would be always unhappy - because the lack of fulfilled desires leads to unhappyness... And unhappiness makes ill... I can see it like Doctor-Das. A fulfilled desire is not a desire any more and the new desire will be fulfilled anytime... For me that describes the almost always lack of happiness... On the other site if any fulfilled desire leads to much more new desires, it could lead to addiction from what or whom ever. Once fulfilled there is more desired and more and more... I never can get enough... Seen from this point, it would mean that the best way to a happy life is being without any desire (what also the ancient wise men said). That does not mean to live detached from the world, it only means to know that nor my happiness nor my life depends on the fulfilling of these desires (eating and drinking I count as a need, but not a desire). When Bruce was bored, because he could not get the desired material things, he of course became ill (physical pain), because unhappiness makes ill... We need the desires to be able to develop, we wrote about that in another blog, otherwise we would live in holes to this day... Because of our never fulfilled desires we (the humankind) have developed such a lot things, which make our life more comfortable, but did we developed our inner desires, our inner world in the same way? Or are we living with our emotional, physical and sexual behaviors still like in the stone age? Did we forget that the developmet of our inner world is essential for our happyness? I need the inner satisfaction, because I can never find it constantly in the outer world. Forgetting that leads to addictions from money, other people, drugs, what ever.

Emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fulfilled

I thought you would like it, Mehmet, the quote from Kafka I could have pointed you to a numerologist/metaphysical worker who has dissected this with a no nonsense approach but I did not think you would like to read through all the pitches. I do agree with that worker, Mehmet. He said at best, marriages based on less than deep spiritual levels are perfect for 2 years at best. Wish you a great week ahead. warmest regards, always, Melinda Melinda M.

Emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fulfilled

Hi Mehmet, the descriptive adjectives -: Emotional, physical, and sexual- added to the word Desire/s are useful as adjectives but misleading in a way. Desire as such can never be fulfilled.The mind is a beggar and most of us are also. If we honestly don't think we are beggars just because we are in the West (many of us ) we may, dare I say need to look a little deeper. The mind itself is a beggar and contains the infinite begging bowl which resides within. There is a Sufi song which goes ".........Looking for Love, Looking for Love, Everywhere I go, Repeat again..........."Trying to keep it all together but Love goes running By...... If we think we are only the mind we are in trouble, if we think we are only the body we are also in trouble; identification with either produces misery. Unfortunately thinking will never show us this existential reality- only meditation can do that. Most philosophers, if identified with their minds will be bored out of their mind and emotionally also. Schopenhauer was a great philosopher and thinker but his life was very miserable. Unlike Einstein, he was not a Mystic but only a thinker- the first rung of the ladder. Hope you had a great weekend Mehmet.

Being together is priceless

I don't agree with the statement either as a health practitioner or as a divorced but happy single individual. Tradition and religion dictates so many pre conceived ideas/dogmas in terms of patterns and outcomes within relationships. Whether a relationship flourishes on the shared balance of both personal developments that lead to the same destination that 'being of a deep love for one another's being'. Being can be enough but being together priceless!'. Getting that balance possible and a journey. We are all on that same journey. Dr. Das comments for me says it well, I just wanted to give it my personal perspective, as I have loved and am being loved, differently in my life to date :) Saying it 'as it is' can be clearer. I had to read this title more than once to feel able to give a response. Thoughtful Sunday Blog Mehmet. You come across as the sensitive researcher which can be less painful :) Cx Carolyn, helping you to #Sparkle with Confidence on Social Media www.lifestyle-online.co.uk www.facebook.com/LifestyleOnline

Emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fulfilled

Hi Mehmet! Let me share my thoughts with you about this particular subject. I have experienced very much these "desires" but I won't embroider further. However I know how and what it feels..the "excessive boredom at emotional and severe pain at physical level" what it means to me because I have learnt to recognize and be directly in contact with my emotions. It has often brought me so many tears as well as sheer happiness that it made me realize I had to stop and re-calibrate my emotional register. I have.... and: What I know to-day is that...had we accomplished with a 100% sureness the fullfillment of our desires, we wouln't know. Who sets the criteria? It is so individual! What we can do is accept that we are not and never be perfect, and try to find in life harmony and peace and share it, hoping it will become very contagious! We really need a "pandemy " of emotional awareness...! Love to you for bringing such an important side of the human heart! Have a wonderful Autumn Sunday! Elizabeth

Emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fulfilled

"emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fulfilled" ...yes and when such a desire is fulfilled, it's not a desire anymore! otherwise each and every emotional or physical or emotional+physical=sexual desire gives birth to a new desire....so it goes on !
