Ask a child what they want and they’ll tell you. Then they’ll tell you some more. And more. And more.
Ask an adult what they want and you may be met with silence.
Or a flushed face.
Or a downplaying of what they really want because, like, you know, who am I to want that?
A reason for this is many of us are not taught to want.
Or we’re taught to want what other people want so that no-one feels bad and the status quo is maintained.
Hardly life-giving stuff!
This down-playing of desires is a sure-fire way to ensure that what’s truly in your heart can never see the light of day.
A desire that’s truly in your heart has energy. It has life way before it comes into being.
As we stay in the present moment and allow it to unfold, THERE is the satisfaction, the happiness, the freedom (insert your own feeling here) we’re seeking.
It’s here now!
We’re not waiting in emptiness for something to arrive in order for us to feel complete.
It’s also our opportunity to course-correct in the moment.
What do you really want and why?
Honesty is the currency.
We were gifted an imagination.
There’s great joy to be found in using it wisely.
