Letting Go

දයාබරකමක් ලෝ වැස්සන් කෙරෙහි
සහෝදරකමත් සවියත් ඇති සිතෙහි
මනා පැවතුමත් සතියත් වැඩු දිනෙහි
දිනාගත නොහැකි කිසීවක් නැත ලොවෙහි

Is feeling a suffering ? As it is explained in Buddhism, feelings acquire grasping of desire. Cause of suffering is the grasping of desire. I think I really have to think more of desire and try to understand what it is. but on the other hand desire is a necessity to survive in this world.
"Desire has a power over us and deludes us only as long as we grasp it, believe in it and react to it.Thinking it's really 'me' and 'mine' and at the end we listen to our desires without even recognizing the good and bad outcomes of it.
I want to find a way which we can contemplate desires and listen to them without attaching to them. Can we just allow them to be the way they are.
