Well, I think part of the draw is that it is a fundamental part of life, a sort of mechanism that exists in our psyche, that we tend to ignore when
deeply invested in things, but if we could keep it in the forefront of consciousness, much suffering could be avoided!
If we could just remember that focusing intensely with strong emotion on a thing will make us become it, perhaps we could choose not to do that with
things we do not wish to experience....
But there is the other thing,
That line we draw, between desireable and undesireable,
good and bad,
right and wrong,
is the line of "self"
and when we step over that line, we break out of our own perception and experience "other".
A petit mort, the ego fears it, but the soul celebrates it,
for these are the moments of Oneness and truth
