What is desire? Desire in the
heart is always God tapping at the door of your consciousness
with His infinite supply -- a supply that is forever useless unless
there be demand for it. Before you are ever conscious of any lack,
of any desire for more happiness, or for fullness of joy, the
great Father-Mother heart has desired them for you. It is He in
your desiring them that you feel, and think it is only yourself
(separate from Him) desiring them. Someone has said, "Desire
for anything is the thing itself in incipiency"; that is,
the thing you desire is not only for you but has already been
started toward you out of the heart of God; it is the first approach
of the thing itself striking you that makes you desire it or even
think of it at all.
We all want to be happy, comfortable,
sincere, loving people. The great truth is that it is our destiny
to be these things, it is our purpose, our meaning.
Our desire for these things stems
directly from God. "De" "Sire" means "from
the Father". Do you see? Desire is holy in and of itself.
And someone will ask, "What
if I desire my friend's wife?" Truly, you do not want your
friend's wife; rather, you want the love or companionship which
that relationship represents for you. The desire for love and
companionship is holy, for it comes directly from God.
So I begin to ask myself, "What
is it that I desire?" And after some digging I find some
I want to be useful in the world.
I want to be loving and to be loved. I want to feel secure in
the world. I want to grow my family, my community. I want to help.
I want to be good.
"What's so surprising about
that?" you may ask.
The surprise is that I am already
doing and being these things. What I most sincerely desire already
What do you really desire? What
is the holy gift that the "Father-Mother heart" is offering
Will you be brave enough to say
