Necessity Vs. Desire
It is easy for me to cancel the corporeal desires of the body for luxuries, new products and the like. But how can I be in thought for the desire for connection, to the goal, when most of the time I think about necessities?
The answer is not to give importance to working hours and involvement with necessities beyond what we must. One should see this as something we must do that is beyond our power, from without choice, and not more than this. If a person needs to work ten hours a day because it is needed, then don't think or deal with it beyond those hours. For the rest of the time, one should focus on the goal and the desire.
