Bodily Delight

Bodily delight is a sense experience, just like pure seeing or the pure feeling with which a lovely fruit fills the tongue; it is a great BOUNDLESS experience which is given us, a knowing of the world, the fullness and the splendor of all knowing. Our acceptance of it is not bad; what is bad is that almost all men misuse and squander this experience, and apply it as a stimulus to the weary places of their life, a dissipation instead of a rallying for the heights. – Rainer Maria Rilke (Letters to a Young Poet)
