Desire and Addiction (Part 2): Voices of Longing Calling You Home

Mar 11, 2020

Dear Friend – As part of the collective response to the CoronaVirus—taking care of each other—Tara has cancelled her live class and recorded this from her home.

Desire is intrinsic to all living forms – the urge to exist and flourish. It turns to suffering when, due to unmet needs, it contracts, intensifies and separates us from our full aliveness and awareness. These two talks guide us in awakening from this trance, and discovering how within desire is the longing that can carry us to true belonging.

All you need is already within you, only you must approach yourself with reverence and love. Self-condemnation and self-distrust are grievous errors. Your constant flight from pain and search for pleasure is a sign of the love you bear for yourself. All I plead with you is this – make love of yourself perfect. Deny yourself nothing. Give yourself infinity and eternity and discover you do not need them. You are beyond. ~ Sri Nisargadatta
