Chapter Six: Desire
Desire is the root of self, of joy, and of suffering.
Our desires are the fingers that braid our happiness and sorrow into the single line of being.
Before fear, there is desire.
Before hope there is desire.
Desire is the precursor and the greatest determiner of who we are.
Our desires define us.
Desire shapes us, moment by moment, into the persons we are to become.
Desires drive us, they control us, from the inarticulate motivations locked within our cells, to the most intricately defined machinations of dynastic ambitions; our desires govern us.
It is a watershed moment in the life of the individual-person when they reach the point where they may live free from desire.
The moment comes, and a choice is made, to shed the skin, to re-enter the womb, to be born anew…or not
To relinquish desire is freedom.
It is freedom of self, and freedom from the self.
It is to be a new creation.
