Burning desire

To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves”

Federico Garcia Lorca

The burning desire is radically human. It mirrors the intensive inner energy, which is so to say the utmost emotional need to be expressed. It has to be expressed, whatever intensitiy you will feel.

To be quiet about it means in this sense not to express this desire not at all. to be quiet means to resist to it`s inner dynamics and rhythm. To be quiet means to reduce your life, your vitality, the respect you can have for yourself.

This burning desire keeps us going, keeps us moving out into the world. This burning desire carries and supports our emotions, our inner life. This burning desire structures our mind, our brain, which accompanies us to find orientation.

This burning desire is the essence of our awareness. Awareness of the world around me, the awareness of myself and the awareness of the others around me wo give sense to my life.

Overwhelming, blind discipline, steady and rigid rationality as well as fighting (self-) control are enemies of this burning desire.
