Desire defined: a longing or craving, as for something that brings satisfaction or enjoyment
Hinduism As rivers flow into the ocean but cannot make the vast ocean overflow, so flow the streams of the sense-world into the sea of peace that is the sage. But this is not so with the desirer of desires.-Bhagavad Gita 2:70 Excerpted from The Bhagavad Gita, translated by Eknath Easwaran, copyright 1985.

Scientology “A dichotomy simply means opposite: two things which, when interplayed, cause action. There’s God and the Devil: that’s a dichotomy–good and evil. When these things are interplayed you get action. If you just got God sitting there good all the time, you don’t get any action. People sing psalms and that’s about the end of it. But if you really have good and evil iinterplaying, you get lots of action.
Now opposites don’t have to be absolute opposites, like God and the Devil; they can be much closer together and still form a dichotomy so that you can get an interplay.
There’s communication and no-communicate. You would never have any action on the line of communication–you’d just have flow–unless you had no-communicate, which is a stop. And as long as you’ve got communicate and no-communicate, you can get action.
If you just had no-communicate, there wouldn’t be any action; if you just had communicate, there wouldn’t really be any action either–there’d just be a general flow which would go on to infinity forever because it couldn’t stop, because there’s a no no-communicate.
So of course there’d never be any enturbulence, and therefore there’d never be any action. So this is a dichotomy.
A static is at no motion and matter (the physical universe is just continual motion. Grounding yourself helps on being aware of flowing between the dichotomy of matter (motion) and the static (no motion).
The grades of energy are static, aesthetic line, reason, emotion, effort and matter.”
