The direction of your desires

Your authentic desires tell you about what you already have more than they tell you about what you don’t have. They lead you toward fully expressing and experiencing the real value that is already yours and the richness that you already have access to.

Desire is about who you are and what you value. As such, following your desires is not selfish, but rather a pathway for giving of yourself.

Desire is your way of telling yourself what you’re capable of experiencing. Desire is your way of helping yourself to understand what is truly meaningful.

Desires are nothing to be ashamed of. They are expressions of the value you have to give.

Live your dreams, fulfill those desires, and don’t hold yourself back out of embarrassment or guilt. All of life is yearning for the unique value that you and you alone are able to contribute.

Let your life unfold in the direction of your desires. Embrace whatever comes your way with a perspective of love and appreciation for all you truly desire.
