Continued observations in clinical psychological practice lead almost inevitably to the conclusion that deeper and more fundamental than sexuality, deeper than the craving for social power, deeper even than the desire for possessions, there is a still more generalized and universal craving in the human make-up. It is the craving for knowledge of the right...
A mental disease has swept the planet: banalization. Everyone is hypnotized by production and comfort — sewage system, elevator, bathroom, washing machine. This state of affairs, which arose out of a struggle against poverty, overshoots its ultimate goal — the liberation of humanity from material cares — and becomes an obsessive image hanging over the...

I desired always to stretch the night and fill it fuller and fuller with dreams.
I want to love every piece of you. I want to be inside you. I want our bodies together, to make the two of us into one. I want it all, and I want it hard, soft, anything that will make you happy. I want to hold you, keep you safe, make you scream… I...
Appetite knows what it craves, without cerebral embellishment. It tends not to waste any time laying hold of its tools. That was the thing I had recognised here: appetite. I recognised it precisely because, in a context like this, it was so unfamiliar. It had forced me to rule out everything else. And there was...
The desire of death will not always lead you to death but the fear of death will.
In the history of a soul’s evolution there is a critical point of the human incarnation that decides for us whether we stay there, go down or progress upwards. There is a knot of worldly desires impeding us; cut the knot by mastering desires and go forward. This done, progress is assured.
Even the moon cannot escape your intoxicating charms…
Does biblical psychology, then, merely ask us to value good things a little less? Does the Bible seek a reduction of guilt by an overall deflation of the currency of moral ideals, so we can live more comfortably with an uneasy conscience? That would exaggerate a valid point.

Pardon me also, and deal mercifully with me, as often as I think of anything besides You in prayer. For I confess truly that I am accustomed to be very much distracted. Very often I am not where bodily I stand or sit; rather, I am where my thoughts carry me. Where my thoughts are,...
Think of it.” Now he is speaking to you, no one but you. “It may not matter what we want for science, or what we think is ethical. All we must do is provide the right environment, and let the heart do what it desires. The heart wants to beat.
Let a sweltering heat… love… rose up relentlessly.
Friends, such as we desire, are dreams and fables.
Beneath my dress is a ladder of desire,that I climb tonight and each night after that.
Desires stay unaware of man’s fragile existence authored by scarcity
I am gazing– desires unaware of destiny frisk about my mindscape like children.
Don’t you know romance is mind’s way of getting rid of it’s own duality?
There is a difference between desire and desperation.
