Personality is Desire Mixed With Longing 

This morning I stumbled across this note written three years ago…..and thought I would share it, now. ~ andy 

For so long i have been thinking in ways that are wrong. 

Wisdom does come through experience. 

It is the living through these experiences that is fertile ground. 

Detachment allows perspective to clarify the actions of the personality. 

Beware of personality because it is desire mixed with longing. 

That old adage to be careful what you wish for could not be more true. 

So where does this leave us? 


Remain forever watchful of your habitual actions. 

Because they are no substitute for careful application of wisdom.
