This rich podcast explores the hindrances and opportunities that desire manifests on the path. Beginning with a reading that warns us how desire can weaken our integrity, hindering the search for self knowledge so the ego becomes the object of longing. Kabir tells us that a teaching might begin as reasoned discourse but is eventually transferred to the intelligent, richer and more expansive realm of Heart, influencing perception and ultimately our experience of ourselves and our world. Reason, we learn, is essential to the process of polishing our Hearts because through experience we discern how desire embellishes those things in life that remove us from experiencing the oh so real grace and beauty of God as our source.
