2 queries please:
1. Is the desire to know the greatest desire? I have read at few places that lust is the greatest desire - I agree to it, since I also feel it is a strong force, since I am a lustful person. But I am noticing that desire to know is also strong. When I try to just being in an informal meditation, just being in present moment, then I notice that my mind tries to notice things as to how they are proceeding like which sound just arose, which changes are occurring in visual field etc. So in a way, it is not just being, rather trying to know what I am experiencing in present moment. So what should I try to do? Any suggestions. Thanks.
2. The second query is related to the above that if I just try to relax in present moment, not specially noting what is going on, then is this a correct way to meditate? How long should I try to do it and where would it lead to, or, is it just passing of time? Your suggestions please. Thanks.
