Taking Harry Potter’s sorry, willing dying to self through loyalty to oppressive ﬁghts with a levantine gnostic, we experience almost overwhelming desire for his success. This lifts our inner good to total love for good. In gladness of heart, it lifts all of our world with us. We are good when we escape the world’s wanting and align with love beyond ourselves.
