Desire is of two kinds — the noble and the base. The base desires are lust and greed. Noble desire is directed towards enlightenment and emancipation. Base desire contaminates and clouds the understanding. Sadhana is easy for the aspirant who is endowed with noble desires.

Buddha said he could not confer enlightenment; he could only show the way; each being, he explained, had to tread the path for him- or herself.

Spiritual evolution is not a commodity or thing that can be bought or given. It is, by nature, a process that you must pursue for yourself. It is self transformation. The most that another person can do is support your own process. No one can do the work for you.
