Osho: needs vs. desires

“Needs are very simple: one needs food,
one needs somebody to love and to be loved by,
one needs a shelter – small things but they can fulfill infinitely.
Needs are simple and few, desires are infinite.
Needs can be fulfilled very easily and then you can become so satisfied and so content that your whole being becomes a prayer of gratitude.
But desires are there in millions, and they cannot be fulfilled.
If you have all the means, more even than necessary to fulfill your needs,
and you are not looking after your needs but you are running after your desires,
then you will go wrong.
Whenever you have means to go wrong, you will go wrong.”
Osho, The Living Tao
