Desire is the universe's impulse to grow

We hardly ever feel satisfied because desire drives us into newness. Constantly. I see it as the universe’s impulse to grow, expand, and evolve. Empty hedonism is the form this impulse or urge has taken in our modern world. Real hedonism channels the energy into what’s good, true, and beautiful. It acknowledges that our drive for more is one unique expression of our desire. And it acknowledges that we are ecological: every other being has its unique expression.
