June 13th - Day 164
What happens when we satisfy a desire? At the moment of satisfaction, at the moment we get what we want, there is a release. There is a momentary stopping and in this momentary stopping is Peace. We do not see that we desire things, not for the things themselves, but for the momentary Peace that is found when desire is not present. But since we do not See this, we just immediately begin to desire something else. When we begin to sit with desire, without attempting to stop it or satisfy it, when we just be with it, we discover the gift it brings. When we go into the core of desire, we find that it is bringing us what we Truly are searching for - Peace.
