Our deep desires are not devised by us, they come bundled with the package called “me”. There are superficial wants, wishes influenced by our immediate surroundings — but these are not part of the package, merely debris to be brushed away.
Instead of expending effort devising goals for superficial wants, seek to recognize and support the desires erupting from your underlying nature. Although obvious once perceived, minds are often too clouded by confusion and persuasion. Clear the clutter to see what lies beneath.
