We have desires as big as the ocean, but the mind and senses are like small bottles. So you cannot fill the ocean of desire into a small bottle. This is because the senses are limited. The mind is bigger than the senses, but the spirit is even greater than the mind. So if we are spiritually satisfied, the mind and senses are automatically satisfied, but how can the senses gratify ultimately, the mind ? The mind has a much bigger desire. Just like we say that someone’s eyes are bigger than the stomach .
