"If desire causes suffering, it may be because we do not desire wisely, or that we are inexpert at obtaining what we desire. Instead of hiding our heads in a prayer cloth and building walls against temptation, why not get better at fulfilling desire? Salvation is for the feeble, that's what I think. I don't want salvation, I want life, all of life, the miserable as well as the superb. "

The German word funktionslust refers to the pleasure of doing what one is made to do, or what one does best, as the pleasure of a bird flying, for example, or a cheetah running or a monkey swinging branch to branch.

What is your funktionslust? What pleases you in itself and as a thing that is essentially a part of who you are?
