Some might claim that peace and clarity are more important than love. We can avoid the ‘danger’ of heartache by forsaking romance and desire altogether.
But, what is the point of it all, then? Why are we here? If we’re just going to find ways to be above our desires, and find ‘serenity and clarity’ to avoid danger and pain….. what exactly will fulfill us? Is it fulfilling to spend our lives depriving ourselves of things we ‘don’t really need,’ just to avoid the possibility of losing them? Is that really living or is that just surviving?
