a lesson on the importance of relinquishing desire. Read
the full article here: I would interpret the relinquishing of desire more like making sure your will does not overcome God’s will. It is learning not to depend on something to feel complete, but to be complete in the present moment no matter what circumstances you face. Illness and crisis teach this lesson astoundingly well. It leaves you naked of all that you thought you needed to uphold your identity and teaches one to redefine one’s self in a new way. Hopefully this definition will not be bound by human desires born out
of attachment to an illusion of something we need. Instead, it should be a relationship to the sacred that you allow to expand your being in ways you could never have fully anticipated or imagined. This is living in God’s grace, and this is liberation from suffering.
