Daily Dharma

It’s an enormous relief to admit that I’m obsessed by a desire for something. First, I can stop trying so hard to pretend that I don’t want something I do want. Second, an overriding desire is often a moment of “wishful thinking.” Seeing our desire as what it is allows it to drop away, or at least loosens our hold on it.
