A question I received: I have heard many times in your lectures that pleasure nullifies the desire, meaning the desire gets fulfilled and disappears. The same happens with spiritual desires, which get fulfillment from the Creator. Therefore we should hold the pleasure from the Creator aside, and not be pleasured by it, in order to pass the fulfillment to “the neighbor,” so that he might be fulfilled.
It turns out that at that time we get fulfillment from him in return and fulfillment becomes eternal. Why is fulfillment from “the neighbor” eternal and doesn’t disappear with time as does individual fulfillment?
My Answer: It is because you use your neighbor’s desire (as a mother uses a desire of her child) and not yours, and you are just a means to fulfill that desire. That is why your fulfillment doesn’t become nullified.
