Desire is for the purpose of expansion. Desire is what motivates us toward expansion. Your desires are a calling. Desire is the Presence (Source or God) communicating that this manifestation needs to come forward through you. Desire is a spiritual mandate. When you experience desire that which is desired is already yours, it is done.
Your desire may come through in the form of wanting gadgets and things. Cars, houses, clothes, cell phones can be the objects of desire. Well the way our commerce system is designed you need money in order to acquire these items. Depending on what the object of your desire is you may need lots of money. Well in order for you to get the money you’ll need to sell something. You may need to invent or improve upon a product or a service. This product or service will help to progress our world. It may seem small to you but you never know how you make an impact on the world. Your impact may be felt through your job or just some small gesture.
For example. I had a desire to go somewhere one day. I needed a ride and I called a ride-share service. The young man came to pick me up and we talked about how he had gotten his real estate license and what he was planning to do with it. I told him that I’m a Real Estate Broker with 15 years of experience and we had a great conversation. At the end of our conversation he asked me, “What is the ONE piece of advice you’d give a young agent, just starting out?” I told him two things. One, “The best marketing channel I’ve ever used is direct mail. Be consistent with your marketing and your money will be consistent.” Two, “I enjoyed working most with investors because they typically have good credit, plenty of cash reserves for down payments and have a great understanding of the buying process. It just makes things easier. Plus, if you do a great job for them they tend to be repeat customers. You can sell one house to one customer or you can sell 10 structures to one customer.” He said, “Wow! I never looked at it that way. Thanks!”
I believe his desire for more information about the real estate industry brought us together. In a moment when he wasn’t in want, he got the answers he was looking for from an unsuspecting source. He tapped into a resource he didn’t even know he had.
Desire is seeking with the belief that the answers, the person, place, thing or situation desired is out there and you are capable of having it. You are deserving of it and the knowledge that the thing desired will reveal itself to you in due time. There is nothing iffy or worrisome about healthy desire.
Want is entirely different. Want is a negative focus on what you do not have, what is not happening or what is not right. Want is thirsty, desperate. Want is frustration about not having what is wanted. Want clouds your judgment, desire provides clarity. Want angers you, desire gives you a sense of freedom, you’re happy about that which you desire and you enjoy the journey of acquiring your desire as much as you enjoy the manifestation itself. Desire wakes you with fervor and zeal. Want is depressing and seems unfair. Desire is an attractive force that one is happily responsible for bringing forth. Want is a victim’s way of manipulating others in hopes of being given permission to be granted what is already theirs.
