This morning, I picked up my New York Times and there was an insert for a theater company promoting its upcoming 2012 season.
One of the plays was entitled, "Insidious" and offered the tagline, "Insatiable Needs...Unspeakable Deeds."
And this got me thinking.
We're all human. And subsequently, because we're fallible, broken, selfish...we all crave, we all have desires. Some of those desires have to be squelched, tamed, curbed for obvious reasons.
You know what I'm talking about...it could be as simple as wanting to buy something that you know you can't afford or even if you could, the money should be spent more sensibly on a different priority.
It could be your desire for sloth. You choose not to use your time well or to be indulgent...and maybe you don't give a shit in the process, but you beat yourself up afterwards.
The desires of our heart. Where do they come from? The ones we don't want to admit. The ones we try to pray out of our system. The ones that draw us back but feel disasterous.
Insatiable needs. I think we all have them. We simply choose to not give in. Or, we do, when it makes sense. But maybe, we're all born with those desires that never go away...we just learn to live with them.
