Keep track of your desires. Become conscious. Let them not rule your life. Buddha penances to realise that root cause of miseries is (tanha) desires. We are sent back to earth from peaceful realms of astral world only because some unfulfilled desires are still with us. No desire is equal to no birth, no death, no misery.  Meditate upon your desires when they flood your mind to find its root. Your very awareness of the roots within will bring infinite joy and peace.  Love and gratitude!
