“The saint is a figure who is not ‘bothered by the Other’s desire as’ cause and rhyme and reason of his own life and being. He is not bothered about the Other to a degree where the Other would be a cause of his subjectivity as such, a central cause that would not lie within his control or simply in him but outside him, in the Other since if he would desire only through others and through the enigma they pose. ‘The saint “causes itself”, becomes its own cause. Its cause is no longer decentred, i. e. , the enigma of the Other’s desire no longer has any hold over it,’ Zizek says.” – http://ift.tt/1Od1Fby
