Desires and Goals.....

Today's topic of discussion was 'desires'.This is what I extracted from the discussion.
We have desires because we don't know the pros and cons of having desires.Do we ever feel satisfied permanently after the desire is fulfilled and what happens to our mind, body and soul if it is not fulfilled?
We should not confuse goals with desires.With desires often material value or fame is attached.What I feel is ultimate goal of everyone is same, though we don't realize it.The path or the journey is different for different persons to reach same destination.The journey becomes enjoyable if the path we choose is according to our 'interests and capabilities' attributed to us, may be randomly or with some divine intent or purpose.If we recognize these with some introspection,we will not become lazy and keep moving on the selected path, enjoying the journey and are internally satisfied.Since different people are given different faculties and capabilities, each one is already chosen for a particular job.So if we do our best and do that specially allotted job, using full potential, given to us, we get immense satisfaction and contentment, whatever is the result.In other words we don't become lazy(driving force being to enjoy the journey-our ultimate goal) and not desire for result(which anyways depends on so many other factors also not in our hands) i.e.we become desireless.Therefore we do make our goals(which were in fact already allotted,we are only to recognize it),work hard on it to have a happy journey full of contentment(which is an ultimate goal for everyone-we can say hidden goal in the chosen goal, though we may not realize it).This ultimate goal is the ULTIMATE BLISS.
