“To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves.” ~ Fedorico García Lorca
“But he did not understand the price. Mortals never do. They only see the prize, their heart’s desire, their dream. But the price of getting what you want, is getting what you once wanted.” ~ Neil Gaiman
“Our frustration is greater when we have much and want more than when we have nothing and want some. We are less dissatisfied when we lack many things than when we seem to lack but one thing.” ~ Eric Hoffer
“Perhaps that is why desire causes men calamity. By identifying with our desires and taking them too seriously, we not only increase our susceptibility to disappointment, we actually create a climate inhospitable to the free and easy fulfillment of those desires.” ~ Tom Robbins
I’m not sure why I am on this topic. Perhaps it is because I had a dream a few nights ago in which a beautiful woman asked me a question. I rarely remember my dreams, much less the dialogue. The statement, her statement, seems like a Zen koan to me; mysterious and deeply personal; alluring and beckoning. I know who the woman looked like without the precious filters of the Dreamtime, but I have no clue as to why that woman was in my dreams, asking that question. Perhaps next time I see her? Yeh, I have, for years, found her to be mysterious, perhaps even a strega. Look it up. I’m not old fashioned nor prejudiced against or about stregas. Much remains to be seen. Or not. It’s the Full Moon in scorpio, and magic doth abide. Hmmmm . . .
Peace out, y’all.
