To reach satisfaction in all
desire its possession in nothing,
To come to the knowledge of all
desire the knowledge of nothing.
To come to possess all
desire the possession of nothing.
To arrive at being all
desire to be nothing.
— St. John of the Cross
Desire is a very strong emotion and it can lead us to good or bad. Our control of desire is the key to victory.
Lord help me this day to desire nothing so that You may be able to give me more than I can imagine.
