“To be desired is perhaps the closest anybody in this life can reach to feeling immortal.”
― John Berger
The desire of loss, of letting go comes with the desire to breathe, to believe in a place in the future where existence is light and joyful, where love isn’t given with scarcity but with abundance & joy. We give space, so that better things come.
Desire is an agreement you make with yourself that says you’ll be unhappy until you get that very thing. I supposed that can be either liberating or convicting depending on who’s reading.
