Overview

We expect that getting what we want will finally make us happy, but what we find is that it mostly just leads to wanting more or wanting something different. Our desires toss us to and fro until we tire of this and begin to question the value of following our desires. Anatomy of Desire will help you understand desire and its purpose in your life. It will also help you discriminate between your Heart's desires and the ego's and to relate to the ego's desires in a way that reduces suffering and increases joy. By pointing out the myths about desire that keep us tied to our ego's desires and the suffering they cause, Anatomy of Desire will help you be happy regardless of your desires and whether you are attaining them. So it is also about spiritual freedom, or liberation, which comes from following the Heart, our deepest desires, instead of the ego's desires. It is about becoming a lover of life rather than a desirer.

    Helpful Guide to Understanding Desire

    I love this book! In Anatomy of Desire, Gina Lake explodes the popular cultural myth that desire fulfillment leads to happiness. In it she states that "while there is no freedom from desiring, because desiring will exist as long as we are human, it is possible to become free from needing our desires to be met." The practical information in this book demystifies desire and helped me to distinguish between the fear driven desires of the ego and the urges of Essence. Anatomy of Desire is an easy, quick read that has had a lasting impact on me. I highly recommend it along with all of Gina's other wonderful books.
