Here is my 2 cents worth on desire.

"You can`t always get what you want, but if you wait some time, you get what you need."  To want or desire something is a god given characteristic given to man only.   Wanting something is an ultimate freedom that can never be taken away. Animals strive for their needs while man strives for his wants.  Wants and needs are most of the times not the same things.  Buddha felt that our desires are the cause of our deepest sufferings. But our desires can also be the cause of our highest highs. If you want something bad enough, you will probably get it.  With my beliefs of reincarnation, I believe that souls also have desires to experience different lives.
