Learn to feast on the delight of your desire, rather than feasting on the small snack of fulfilling the desire. Reach deeply beyond the desire and connect to the longing from which it comes. Hold that longing in your heart until you cannot hold back your tears. 

This is the way home:

Longing is your map, while feelings and emotions are not. Longing is a steady river, feelings are a passing breeze. Longing keeps a thread, a direction, a journey, while desire is as quick as the flicker of a flame. Hold your longing, feel it deeply, let it make you feel something, allow it to express itself through you, then let the desire hold you. Rest inside it, and find your sleep there. It will take you home.
