Stay desireless and fearless. (Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj)

For reminding myself, some questions maybe helps..

I am reading or I want to read (?)
I am typing or I want to type (?)
I am looking or I want to look (?)
I am listening or I want to listen (?)
I am knowing or I want to know (?)

I don't see the connection

I don't see the connection between Maharaj's advise and the questions...

Desire is uncertain...leads to fearness!

I think these questions are related to your present and future moment.
Desire and fearful moments come when you are uncertain...
it is future.
Your present moment is not uncertain...It is certain...Where you are very much present with no desire.

Yes it is

@mika: Looks irrelevant?
What a funny thing of habit is, I don't know that I already wanting, already have desire. Sometimes these questions pops to remind me.

@bonya basu: Yes it is. Due to habit, unconsciously project to future, out of past habit.
