I have been struggling with this sense of desire..of anything I do not possess or own. Ever since I was aware of my conscience, I have had desire. And my whole life, I’ve always wondered if I was the only one..
And it wasn’t until recently, I had to shake things up a bit..
I was ranting about something to my coworker, and told him how I wanted sushi. When he replied to me: “How does it feel to want?” – I almost got defensive, and gave him a little bit of attitude, but then the question itself made me completely speechless – I never thought about asking myself something like that before. And when I really sat and thought about it, “wanting” something really doesn’t feel good…neither does desire. Sure the thought of owning or possessing something gives us a temporary high, but what happens after we obtain the object? …….the high goes away.
In my opinion, possession isn’t love, neither is desire – it’s a form of lust and it usually doesn’t last longer than being a temporary high. I feel we, as humans, want and desire things because we fear things (including people) are limited – that if we don’t get our paws on what we want RIGHT NOW, then it’s a lost cause… FALSE. This universe is a loving one, and so long you know you deserve what your soul thrives toward, you must believe it will make its way to YOU.
What I’ve come to practice nowadays is, practicing gratitude. Finding ultimate happiness with the way I feel inside, whenever I desire or want something…there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for – even the very breath you’re taking right now. Let time & magnetism be on your side, and realize..you, as a GOD more so than a HUMAN, already own everything on this planet!! Without me even having to break it down for you, we are all connected by the spirit – no matter where you feel the higher power/spirit comes from, we are all steadily connected by it, like infinity strings.
When you come to an understanding with your SELF, you become happy..this I promise you. And you will not even have a want/need/desire in your life other than MORE happiness..and you can’t help but want to share it with everyone else in the world..every one becomes your brother and/or sister..and possessions are no more.
You will also find things come into your life that might stay, or might not stay – but it’s nothing to fret about, because with gratitude overflowing from your pores, you will want to set your loved ones/items free to share the light and happiness.
Sounds corny, I know, but it’s soo true. You are infinite, as are your possibilities to obtain what your soul is working toward – LIVE AND LET LIVE. PROSPER IN HAPPINESS AND WATCH IT COME BACK TO YOU, MULTIPLIED. Let it go..
