To be free from wants is to be free from waste.
Expression: The one who is free from wants is the one who is free from expectations.When there are no expectations, there is not too much thought about what is not there or what should be there. Since the mind is free from all these kinds of wasted thoughts, whatever is done is the best.
Experience: When we are free from wants or desires, we are able to always remain content. We can then appreciate and enjoy everything that comes our way, and do not expect anything both from situations and people. So the mind is free from wasted thoughts and questions.
Peace and Love, Jim
