We need not fear wanting

This really resonates with me. I know so many people who are determined to stuff down or push away any and all desires in the name of being spiritual. Seems to me that wanting is part of being human, and any spirituality worth its salt would have room for humanity to be...well, human.

"if we push away desire, we disconnect from our tenderness and we harden against life. We become like a “rock in winter.” When we reject desire, we reject the very source of our love and aliveness."
