I asked before, "How does one change what one wants?" I poked around a little further in a later post. Today, reading up on Hinduism, it appears that one answer may be, you don't.
It is true, Huston Smith's Hindu would say, that there are greater and lesser desires. The desire for success is better than the desire for pleasure. The desire to serve others, better than the desire for success. Ultimately, you will desire liberation from the finite. But, the point is you will eventually have the higher desires. Maybe not in this lifetime, but eventually.
So, should we try to shape our desires?
