A Note on Desire

Desire implies a lack of, a need, a want that is addiction. Desire is the opposite of love. When you say you desire something, it means you are addicted to something. If you love someone, you do not want anything. There is space to breath and fluidity exists that is natural and whole. When you desire something, you destroy that fluidity and natural release. You kill what already is. To love means to be aware, to know the space that is and to sink into this space. To be aware is a choice that requires attention and focus. It is simple and the most pleasant way of life. Desire breeds pain, lonliness and obstruction. It is the source of all misery. Suffering is optional. Hurt is part of life. For when the shell breaks open and new life emerges, tears will be shed as the light breaks free. This is the cycle of life. Where there is struggle there is life. Do not confuse suffering with struggle. They are two totally opposite aspects. Suffering is a choice to stay inside the shell, to stay in the cages that were built for you by small and unaware people. Struggle is a choice to break free, to crack the shell and emerge as your spiritual DNA sees most fit. Struggle is growth, growth is life, and life is as is, present and whole. We are not meant to be perfect, we are meant to be present. Desire dissolves, for it really is only an illusion. Who you are, your spirit, the love that creates all, is the force of the universe. It's a choice we make. To love or to desire. To be or to be addicted. To grow or to suffer. A breath of awareness is all you need to make this choice, to sink into what is.

    Desire dissolves with the choice to be present. It really is that simple. What you focus you strengthen. Each time you decide to be present, you strengthen what is. It is the difference between standing on a solid rock with the fruits of abundance, or drifting wrecklessly and aimlessly to the powers of things that have nothing to do with who you are. Essentially, it is the difference between owning your true power or throwing it away to smaller entities.
