While there are a multiple of definitions for the word Desire, I’m goin to focus on the first one:
de-‘sire (tr. v.) 1. To wish or long for: want; crave
Is it O.K. to Desire? To actually “long” for something? I seem to have a considerable mental block on this one. I have many thoughts confused in my head about the topic.
Ever feel like your “on the fence?” Do you see the “good” path you’ve been taught to know and seek on the one side – Do you see the “enjoy life” path on the other side that is filled with unknown pitfalls that you’ve been taught to know and avoid? I’ve been stuck on that damn fence for near 30 years!!!!! Holy crap! Makes me wonder if I’ll ever be a “real boy!” Lucky for me my nose doesn’t grow when I lie. 😉
Back to Desire. I have analyzed it. Gave it some thought and re-analyzed it. Then I even gave it some more thought. It doesn’t seem to get me any closer to an answer. But lookie there, Desire is a ‘transient verb.’
‘tran-sient (adj.) 1. Passing away with time; transitory; fleeting
There’s irony for ya! Desire, in its natural state, is actually a fleeting, descriptive action… Though fleeting and likely vain, Desire requires action to be fulfilled.
That flat stopped me in my tracks there. I welcome your input.
