People tend to say you should not have desires if you are spiritual. My guru was the first to tell me that desire is ok. Even as a sadhu, I had the desire to have breakfast, sleep, have an ice cream, and go to the beach, watch a movie. The goal is to direct or channel our desire to what is important in life. To live without desire is impossible. My need to breathe in order to live is a desire into itself. There is a notion that materialism is bad and that if you are spiritual, you should not be making money or have too many material possessions. For a grihastha, as per the Vedas, there are four goals – artha, kama, dharma, moksha. As a householder, your first goal is to make money, ensure your family is sheltered, safe and cared for. Once these things are taken care of, you can sit down to meditate. One of my goals is to make as much money as possible. This is so that I can impact humanity and the environment. Without adequate money, I will not be able to see myself through these goals.
