 My desire not to desire is a much like the author's likening a seekers seeking of oneness to a donkey chasing a carrot on a stick. I'm getting more comfortable with seeking yet I frequently think, as some wise person already said: "that which I am looking for is that which is looking." I don't think I have ever experienced completely accepting this "wonderfully terrible world just as it is." I still make a distinction between intellect, will, and the rest of me. I accept this oneness intellectually, and sometimes when I am compassionate to self and others I accept it more fully, but I have a difficult time experiencing total acceptance of anything. Thanks for the opportunity to respond. Warm and kind regards to everyone.
