Katarína Brestovanská: In Between Yearning And Death
What is one’s relationship to his or her own yearning and options? What is stopping us from decision making and responsibility taking? What or who is a driver of our decisions?
The process of desire’s arising is comprehensive. It includes psychological, social, cultural, religious, and other influences. Yearning, for a healthy individual, is an integral part of values such as freedom, will, truth, and change. Our intention was to reveal a state when we are mindful of our yearnings, what are our innermost desires, how to manifest them at individual or collective level. But, at the same time, we do not cling to them as if they were the only important in our life. They are just present, we share them sensitively and I assist others on their way to their own yearning. This is the state we call free efforts or effortless being.
