We were born with natural desires, all meant for good and healthy purposes. They just need to be channeled in the right direction.

But we human beings have a knack for creating desires that fight against our own nature. Desires that are destructive to ourselves, our society and our environment.

Such desires can’t be rechanneled. But if you have the power to create them, you also have the power to wipe them out and start again from what G‑d gave you.
