Parabola 35:3

Desire

In the current issue of Parabola, we explore the heights and depths of this most human of conditions. Defined as craving, longing, wanting strongly--and also as that unsatisfied state that fills us whether or not we obtain the object or person we crave--desire drives us and shapes our lives. Some long for fortune; others sex; others vengeance. In others, the energy of desire is refined, fueling the wish to alleviate the suffering of others; to bring peace to this torn world; to know and serve the truth. What do you desire?
