Rumi

“When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; If I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me and without pain. From this I understand that what I want, also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.” – Rumi

The secret of prosperity is to affirm your true, abundant nature, the true fact of your plenitude. Be contented and put a notice on your mind: “No admission for any desire”. The moment a desire arises, just reject it. Say, “Desire! Get out!” And then you will begin to experience that the desired object comes by itself to you. As long as you run after a thing, you cannot get it. The moment you turn away from a thing, it follows you by itself. This is an Eternal Law. This is a law which has been proven in the lives of all those who have discovered it and applied it to themselves. – Swami Chidananda

Gurudev has always said, “Try always to nip the desire in the bud. When a desire comes in the form of a ripple, try to liquidate it then and there itself. But if due to lack of your vigilance it takes the form of a desire, see that it is not fulfilled. Do not make Cheshta outwardly. If a desire comes, ‘I could go and gossip,’ say, ‘No,’ “I will not allow the body to move.” If the body does not move, the mind is helpless, and ultimately the reverse process will happen. The desire will sink back into the mind and there will be calmness. – Swami Chidananda
