How to fight desire?

“How am I to fight desire? There is nothing stronger.” asked the questioner to Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. “the waters of life are thundering over the rocks of objects – desirable or hateful. Remove the rocks by insight and detachment and the same waters will flow deep and silent and swift, in Greater volume and with greater power. Don’t be theoretical about it, give time to thought and consideration; if you desire to be free, neglect not the nearest step to freedom. It is like climbing a mountain: not a step can be missed. One step less – and the summit is not reached.”
