Eros

“In the Indian view of creation, Desire is always the first seed of life. The Greek term “Eros” comes closest to what Desire means, but it’s not relegated to the sexual only; it is in fact something much wider and vaster. Eros is the driving force of life itself, and the erotic is that quality in reality that makes it lively, juicy, and alluring.” —Sally Kempton, Awakening Shakti: The Transformative Power of the Goddesses of Yoga
