The named is the mother of myriad things
Thus, constantly without desire, one observes its essence
Constantly with desire, one observes its manifestationsTTC 1 (Lin)
Having the dreams of a million versions of life I spend the night in trees. I walk the molten pathways of chocolate rivers and dive the depths of endless space.
To desire is to create from the vastness of the endless Tao.
To be desire-less, I experience all of everything and all of nothing in a single glance.
What would you rather experience, one thing you want now? Or all of eternity in every moment?
Desire is the former; desire-less is the latter.
