Episode 3: Naming the Wild Things
When we talk about desire we often think of the objects of our affection: fast cars, big houses, beautiful bodies. Even if we don't even know why we want these things, they can consume our energy and attention. We often chase these objects while remaining oblivious to our true desires.
Meanwhile, leaving our true desires unfulfilled leads to diminishing happiness in our life. These desires won't go away, and they won't be fooled by half-measures. It takes work, but if we put in the effort to identify these true desires, we will discover the divine intent in each one and the happiness that comes in having them fulfilled.
This episode defines what desire is in its purest from, offers language for identifying our basic desires and illustrates God's invitation for us to deeply engage these desires for our good.
