Consume desires

The rain could turn to gold
And still your thirst would not be
slaked.
Desire is unquenchable
Or it ends in tears, even in heaven.
He who wishes to awake
Consumes his desires
Joyfully.
In his fear a man may shelter
In mountains or in forests,
In groves of sacred trees or in shrines.
But how can he hide there from his
sorrow?
-Gautama Buddha
