No one is a slave to desire. It simply exists or it doesn't. If you completely accept your hunger it will disappear (temporarily at least). But that doesn't mean you don't have to eat. It just means that the hunger has gone away.
Of course there wouldn't be much purpose to do this with hunger. That was only an example. It's mostly useful in situations where you feel trapped and there doesn't seem to be anything you can do to stop suffering.... like the situation Company seems to be describing.
Also I'm not suggesting an embrace or embellishment of desire... merely an acceptance of it. A focused acceptance where you sit down and feel it and accept that you feel it and are fine with it being there.
This is just a suggestion of what helps me.. if you find its not for you then forget about it.
