Someone once told me
that desire is ego’s hungry cry
Something meditation could teach you how to silence
Do you want to grow up to become a spiritual human being?
Stop desiring, start meditating, little girl
And so I started one of my journey’s
Striving my way to that perfect lotus position in life
I found a place where the needing of nothing became my spiritual crown.
Unfortunately, that crown did not fit me for too long.
And the silence of nothing started to sound too loud
I swear, the mirror even started cracking at my reflection
What was wrong with me?
Well, I discovered that I was awesomely good at desiring
I even had a unique talent for it
So did my inner spiritual journey end there?
No, it began.
The more I opened up to the opportunity of everything
The more I stopped needing the value of nothing
Nothing good, for me
Suddenly, with the speed of light
From my little toe all the way to my head
Like an endless summer storm
A hot energy rushed through me
I started desiring. Everything
Walks, dances, naps, climbs, adventures,
colors, achievements, words, songs,
travels, poems, kisses, cuddles,
tears, laughs, screams, silences, craziness, deliciousness, loveliness
The energy of desiring all of the most unexplainable things
it drives me onward, since that day.
And to my surprise, in the midst of that hot summer storm
I found the most silent silence
Someone asked me the other day, what i thought made a spiritual person
I don’t know, i said.
But i do know what makes a person beautifully human
It is his true and unique way of desiring life
Because there is nobody in the world
who desires in the same, silly and unconditional way
