Our desires can lead us a merry dance. Conviction that we want something tends to wane after the having. The anticipation is the buzz.
Cultivating a healthy attitude towards this contrariness can be challenging. Often we don’t realise we’re in the throes of desire until after the event. The suffering has already passed.
Examining our shadow is a great place to start on the path to freedom. Liberation from our basest urges begins in the depths of our dark side. It’s heavy lifting to turn this stone but worth the effort to experience the light.
