who is there to desire?

so many have spoken of desire as the cause of suffering
the real question is "who" is there to desire

the very attempt to overcome desire
reinforces the identity keeping desire intact

be what you are and there is no one
there is only Atman (consciousness)

in absence of you
there is no desire
only being only This

the other

find out what you are
to see you are not the person
but the consciousness in which all arises

recognize the other as just another appearance of what you are
then its just you-meeting-you and a delight in being

see yourself as seperate
and the other becomes a reflection of your false identity
and begins the struggle to be, to become

not known by choice, only in understanding
this happens before the mind
in the knowing of what you are
in itself of itself
