Dance of Desire

We dance between our drive for more and other beings’ drive for more.

My existence inevitably takes something from someone else’s existence. Be it an apple I eat that someone else could have eaten, be it the place I occupy that someone else could have occupied. I don’t deny this reality. And with this comes great responsibility—the responsibility to constantly ask myself what desire I genuinely have. For if I fulfill a desire that doesn’t matter to me, I unnecessarily take something from someone else - human or non-human.
