Day 293 – Red

October 21, 2012


“If everyone acted on all their desires, the world would be in chaos. Many people only keep their desires in check because of laws and threats of punishment. People who are more aware realize that it is their own duty to control their desires. Recognizing, controlling, and re-channeling desires are the essential tasks of a person who is consciously working to realize their own potential and who wishes to live in harmony both within this body and in the body of larger society. This applies whether they hope to realize their potential as a musician, an athlete, or an awakened being.” (Jan Chozen Bays, Mindful Eating, 2009.)
