Words of Wisdom – “The Risk of the Desire” – 6/3/2019

June 3, 2019

“For the distance in the work, to the closeness of intimacy, is ever at risk when a primary focus is placed on distance over closeness. The stress that limits the desire for desire, plays the role in also limiting closeness. The ‘freedom’ that ultimately comes with lust, is the ultimate closeness, though should such be created of a mindset as eternal, it will dry. When love arises, there is eternity. Lust is the spark that creates the instant blaze, while love is the slow blaze that is continually stoked out of a necessity to keep the warmth in that closeness. From distance to the intimacy in closeness, love is the distance made as good, while intimacy when rarefied and not often is what makes a romance not burn in its own heat.”
