We all WANT,,,,,stuff, situations, conditions, feelings, emotions, recognition, love, understanding, accomplishments, achievements, states of being, and the list goes on. There was a time where I thought I was tormented by my “Wants”. I was taught a prayer that would lesson the stranglehold that desire had on me. The prayer was designed for me to refrain from longing, and accept life as it was. I misunderstood the concept at the time, and actually sought RELIEF from the longings of my heart.
I since have had an Epiphany; perhaps many. Call them awakenings of the Soul, or Enlightenment, but new perspective is what I gained. I am now aware that our desires, our longings, our dreams, basically ALL OF OUR WANTS, are the catalyst for the EXPANSION OF THE UNIVERSE.
Humanity is the creative extension of The Divine Presence. We are the factory through which GOD produces EXPERIENCE. God Experiencing GOD is facilitated through the desires of the unlimited extensions of Divinity-In-Form. Desire has been programmed into us in order to motivate us to create. The initial “SPARK” is actually our longing to be ONE with our Source, the inward draw of life unto ITSELF, (we call it LOVE). As we feel emptiness through our own illusion of seperateness, we look to create conditions that we feel joy through. These are the Spiritual Gifts we have been given, our SPIRITUAL TOOLBOX.
THIS IS THE DIVINE DESIGN. “Cut not the wings of your dreams, for they are the heartbeat and the freedom of your soul”~ Flavia ~
“Whatever a person’s mind dwells on intensely and with firm resolve, that is exactly what he becomes.” ~ Shankaracharya ~
“The desire of gold is not for gold. It is for the means of freedom and benefit.”~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
Being able to create the conditions that we desire is the purpose of our life. We must be careful though, as desire is a double edged sword. It will pierce your side as quickly as it will defend your life, when used improperly. Desire is human nature. It is instinctive. AN infant, void of language, reason or understanding will scream until it’s desire is satisfied. As adults many a criminal act has been perpetrated,\ throwing reason out the window, in order to quench our instinctive thirst for,,,,,,WHAT?
The path to happiness and fulfillment lies in the ability to control desire and grow with it. Never be victim to your wants, but be propelled and motivated by them. It is a synchronous dance of want, need, and acceptance, seasoned with faith, patience and confidence, that allows joy to be born from desire. Scream yell and have a tantrum if you don’t get what you want, but realize that life is beautiful where you are now. Move toward your dream grateful for every step along the way, never impatient or needy, confidant in your resolve, steadfast of purpose, loving every moment.
If we allow our desire to destroy the present moment, our entire journey of creation will be tainted with misery. Embrace your ability to create. Persist with present moment acceptance, gratitude, and confidence.
“The unlimited combination of conditions, collaborating to create each and every new condition is the exponential expansion of ”ALL THAT IS” dancing to ONE-SONG (Uni-verse) of LOVE!” ~JR~
We are growing from ignorance to enlightenment with every new encounter. Follow your dreams
GO FOR IT!
The Journey IS the Destination.
