A response to an email today:
Thank you so much for connecting. Beautiful subject. Desire…
You can’t get rid of your desires. So we work with them, uncover them.
If your only desire is experiencing the Love of God, you would experience it. Immediately!!!
Is that your experience? If you hold other desires in your heart they manifest themselves in your daily life. I want to write an inspiring book, I want a beautiful house, I love to have a lot of money… Whatever your desire is. There is nothing wrong with it. Be honest with yourself admitting it to yourself that they are there. Ask yourself the question, is that really, deeply, truly what I want???
Now one more thing. If you would give this all up and come with empty hands to God, and give yourself completely to the Love of God for a moment. Then you would be free of your ideas of what you want etc. And if you do so, whatever is coming back to you, ( your writing etc.)is a gift given to you. You had given it up, but it came back to you. I had the same with my kids, they came back to me after a couple of years. But the relationship or the occupation, or the object now is free, free to be itself, free of my ideas. But I am able now to trust every movement given, every word given, every move given. Enjoying it in all its freedom.
So let me be clear: to be free of your concerns about things you do,think, say and decide, but completely relying on what is given is so fulfilling!!! Every step is a recognition of the communication in Oneness.
