Listen to desire as you listen to the wind among the trees.
Only in relationship can you know yourself, not in abstraction and certainly not in isolation.
The movement of behavior is the sure guide to yourself.
It's the mirror of your consciousness: this mirror will reveal its content, the images, the attachments, the fears, the loneliness, the joys and sorrow.
Poverty lies in running away from this, either in its sublimations or its identities.
You try being alone, without any form of distraction, and you will see how quickly you want to get away from yourself and forget what you are.
You want to be loved because you do not love; but the moment you love, it is finished, you are no longer inquiring whether or not somebody loves you.
