Young college student learns her lesson because of an iphone 8.

As human beings, we are conditioned to seek happiness and avoid pain. In so doing, we tend to desire those things or experiences which we believe will increase our happiness or decrease our pain, be it more money, gadgets, material things, a relationship with someone specific or a new relationship, a bigger home, a flashier car, a better body, a more rewarding job - the list is endless. By doing so, we live in the "when I have ...I will be happy" trap. Just because you desire something, it does not mean you really need it, and what you do not need you should not want.

For this Chinese teenager, she would do anything or everything just to have an iPhone 8. A teenage girl who claimed to be auctioning off her fresh flower in return for an iPhone 8 was taught a terrifying lesson. The 17-year-old is reported to have posted her 'offer' in an online forum, where she said she would give up her chastity for a cash payment of around 20,000 RMB ($3017).

But her post was discovered by a Vlogger who hosts a show, and they set up an interview with the unsuspecting teen, known as Xiao Chen. Footage posted by vlogger Nana, 21, shows the pair meeting in a tea house, where Xiao Chen explains that one of her friends slept with a wealthy stranger and earned "easy" money. The girls claim she wants to in order to buy the new iPhone 8 - which all her friends have - although several people have said the footage is fake.

Nana, whose show focuses on exposing poor social behaviour and challenging the human condition, tries subtly to talk the teen out of the deal, but Xiao Chen insists. "All I have to do is lie there, right?" she says during the interview, adding: "We each get what we want. I’ve already thought it through."

Nana then gives the girl a "deposit" and the pair set up a time and place for the deal to take place, but the teenager has no idea that she is about to be set up for a very public shaming. The show’s climax happens with Xiao Chen inside the hotel room with her client, who hands her a new iPhone 8 to gain her trust.

But things go frighteningly wrong for Xiao Chen when three more men - one with a camera - enter the room and the trio say they want to "have some fun". The teen is pinned to the bed- and then Nana bursts out from the hotel room bathroom to stop the staged scene.
"Now are you afraid?" Nana screams at Xiao Chen, who sits crying on the bed.

"Well, it’s too late now!" the vlogger adds, saying: "It’s not worth selling anything just for a phone." In the end, Nana orders all the men, including the cameraman, out of the hotel room so she can lecture the teenager in private.

Know that much of the frustration you may feel in your attempts to consciously create your reality stems from the fact that you are desiring rather than choosing, which really amounts to wishing rather than creating. When you desire nothing, you can choose and by choosing something, you effectively claim your right to it; the right which desire denies you. 

Ultimately, what choice grants you in certainty, desire takes away. This is because you are in control of your choices whereas your desires control you. Notice how when you are in a state of desire all power is outside of you, whereas in a state of choice you know that the power is within you.

Only when you desire nothing and hence, free yourself from the trap of desire, can you say "this or something better for the highest good of all involved", really mean it and be grateful.
