Tonight, I share the words of a meditation we have been doing the past almost-week, which is focused on “wanting nothing”.
Whenever I used to hear the word “want”, I saw it with the view of “desire”.
Ever since I learned German, I see that definition only second, for the original definition and connotation(?) arises first: to lack.
From this perspective, this definition, “wanting nothing” comes across differently.
By the “desire” interpretation, one could have little to nothing or have loads, but desire nothing.
By the original meaning interpretation, one has everything needed and lacks nothing.
I fully prefer the original meaning interpretation for the word “wanting” in this case (and just about everywhere, really).
And so, we have this lovely meditation for “wanting nothing”, aka “lacking nothing”.

Roughly translated, it is, “Let us shout ‘God’ together.”
I have greatly enjoyed this meditation, as well as its intentions.
