The body causes hunger which the soul feels and starts fulfilling hunger, the true requirement of the body and when the true requirement of the body is fulfilled as the body also indicate such fulfilment which provides physical satisfaction to the soul. If the soul is not staying on such satisfaction, it is longing further because it has whims of desires and so being capricious, it does not satisfy itself through the requirement of the body is fulfilled and a true indication of fulfilment given by the body appears to have been ignored by soul resulting in discontentment and soul being involved in whimsical desires is not happy as it has lost contentment.
The subject of Atma( Soul) is restricted material life filled with contentment and abstinence-based on the true requirement, utility and safety; devotion to God with control over kaam, krodh, lobh and moha to establish a connection with God for peace and betterment of soul. Physical efforts and satisfaction are temporary, though important for the existence of life, yet with control over material efforts and desires so as to free oneself from attachment. Purification of body and soul is needed. Spiritual satisfaction is lasting.

This is a boastful intelligence. True intelligence is sedate, sober, calm and sincere and agreeing to the good and right point to feel and understand with the gravity of thoughts and wisdom without any sense of ego and boastful attempt and approach.

Soul ( Chetna ) is godly particle free from desires, has an only attachment to God, is perfect in itself. Worldly requirements are due to the body in which it is kept prisoned and feels influenced by body and nature as a result of which it has to fulfil true requirements only. Other desires are originated from kaam, krodh, lobh and moha which the soul suffers because of so many desires it has attached to the world, otherwise, there is no bondage and soul is free to have an association with God. We should know and fulfil our true requirements only keeping away from untrue desires to realize that soul is free and the influence of body and nature is temporary and efforts of the soul is limited to that extent only beyond which God can be realized and his association becomes available to the soul.
There is a difference between want and desire. Want is our true or natural requirement but the desire is our craze, lust and whims of greed and temptation. There is a limited circle in which we revolve to fulfil our want and we know to stay on some right and good point which satisfies our mind, body and soul on some base whereas fulfilment of desire is contrary to it. Desire keeps us involving and struggling because it is a craze, lust and whims of greed and temptation never to be fulfilled. We enter into an unlimited circle and revolve for fulfilment which continues without staying on a right and good point to satisfy. Even if we are successful in fulfilling some desires, it satisfies temporarily and keeps us longing for more and more without any break and fulfilment is never possible and life is also temporary and man cannot go after endless desires. If we go after desires it will bring only trouble, headache, displace, dissatisfaction and discontentment and has no base to stop us on the right and a good point to know, feel and understand that can satisfy our mind, body and soul and provide peace and contentment.
