Well, the desired experience implies the undesired, LOL! However, I don't want to be completely flat about everything. I think it's all about acceptance, what do you think?
 Quoting: Unit3

While I'll ponder on your other post, it seems to me that not all desired experiences imply the undesired, if that is already not relevant.

[New perspective]
Let's say I want to go to Spain for a holiday, as an example. It is a desired experience, and it would be fun to get the Genius working, but not going is not undesired, just irrelevant. Content either way.

[Change of current perspective]
In the case of the kitten, I really want to create a change, as I am tired of chasing after it, so the desired experience does imply the undesired (resistance), if perception stays focused on the problem (even indirectly), which is relevant.

This, to me is the trickier part.

How can you desire something if you don't un-desire something? If you are content if your desires aren't met, (if you don't get to go to Spain) then I think it's all irrelevant, but not so sure otherwise.

Yes, it is tricky to have a problem and change it without resistance. I know Chaol has said to relate to it differently to change perspective. I'm trying to figure out how to do this with a certain body function that slows down if I don't eat enough fiber! ;o(

Another example.
If I desire a dog, I am not un-desiring my cat.

If the desire is opposite of the un-desired, than there is resistance about the un-desired. If the desire is just something new, I think it's different.

Good point.

Edit: But, doesn't the desire to have something, a desire not to not have it? Iow, what brings the desire in the first place?
