When we blame desire for our dissatisfaction, we cut ourselves off from the best guidance we have for finding health and well being. There is wisdom in desire, though we have learned to ignore it. In What a Body Knows, Kimerer L. LaMothe explains how we are trained to think and feel and act as if we were minds living in and over bodies. We tend to perceive our desires as unruly forces that we must control - or be controlled by. But our desires are us. They are what we are creating in the moment. When we learn to find and move with the wisdom they contain, we become who we can be, and unfold what we have to give. LaMothe illustrates how, in relation to three life-enabling desires - our desires for nourishment, physical intimacy and spiritual fulfilment.
