Desire…

Desire is the fuel of the ego.
You will never find your true self
as long as this fire burns in you,
Even the desire to be virtuous
will corrupt you in the end…

True goodness comes from emptiness,
where thinking has stopped and
the fire has been extinguished…

Its again a 20-sec-exposure photo of a big half-burned half-cinder firewood moved in the air by Aida… 😉 It was actually the first try of these series… our first experience with such an idea… while Aida moved it in the air, being ventilated well… It suddenly started again to burn with a large bright flame which gave all the beauty to this photo… It burns like desire, doesn’t it?
