Dear Nirvana, I can think of several of reasons for such a desire. For example: 1) It may be meant to spur you to struggle and stretch beyond your comfort zone, or to make you seek to return to your life-plan if you have gotten off-track. In my experience, this kind of angst is a powerful driver for people who are stuck in a rut in life to make them try harder to get out of that rut! 2) It may be meant to help you correct mistakes that kept you from growing in a past lifetime. This is kind of the mirror-image of #1 above. If, for example, you chose money over love in a past lifetime, you may have chosen to build in a craving for money in this one so you can face those same choices but this time make all the right decisions! 3) Above all, you are meant to do SOMETHING! Never ignore any persistent urge or craving: it is there to prompt you to react to it. Don't assume that, well, after you die it will be satisfied, since that is pretty certain NOT to happen; instead, if you don't face it and work on it now, the period right after your death is going to be one big swear-filled eruption of "DARN IT!" and plans quickly made to start right in on basically the same lifetime over again that you are living now so that THIS time you will actually follow your life-plan! I hope this helps, dear!
