So rein in desire, do not desire----better sunshine, more food and turn your Eros to the Soul.
The Greeks said that Eros gives wings to Psyche (the Soul).
I say desire and its realigning is a most potent weapon in the arsenal of the true Philosopher.
It is interesting to sit down and really ask, what am I doing with my Eros?
Christian morality messed with this one and connected Eros and Desire with the outlawed sexual functions?
William Blake makes many references to Desire, of its proper uses.
Do not just say the words and expect something to happen.
Tomorrow morning your machine will wake up again--- what do you desire??
Desire to change, see what happens.
This is the secret… Using the energy of Desire, to be present.
