Do what we will, sublimate it, escape from it, deny it or accept it, give it full rein—it is always there. Though we know how the religious teachers and others have often said that we should be desireless, cultivate detachment, be free from desire—that is totally absurd, because desire has to be felt to be understood. To destroy desire, we desecrate the joy of life itself. To master desire, shape it, control it, dominate it, suppress it, we may well only succeed in destroying something extraordinarily rare and beautiful. Jiddu Krishnamurti
