We are layers upon layers
You name it
There are always a thousand false desires that mask
The true desires
Below the surface of all that churning that breeds contagion of more
And when you take away all the false desires
These true desires glow
When you create from the level of true desire and not false
A deep sense of peace
Of guidance and wisdom sets in
And that’s ultimately
How you know the difference
*I’ve had all the whims, been pulled in every direction by the quick, easy, drops of dopamine on the brain – what a ride – fun but in the end, very empty which is why many eastern religions and philosophies have given the word desire a bad rap.
But what they really harken to are the false desires that give pleasure and then leave us feeling empty and unfulfilled so we go searching in that toy box again and again and again. Some people spend their entire lives sifting and sorting trying to fill the void, trying to find the source of that annoying alarm that is going off somewhere in the depths of their own being.
They think that it is one of these handy toys that will satisfy it
When really, it is only when you lose all the toys
Lose all the false desires
That your true purpose takes hold and you see it and begin to follow it like the beacon that will lead you to true satisfaction that it is.
That is how you know you are on purpose
No sense of urgency
Just a deep satisfying pull in the right direction
It is sad that just as we are embarking on our lives – turning eighteen, heading out into the world
So to does a plethora of false desires become suddenly available
Eating whatever you want
Doing whatever you want
Buying whatever you want with the money you have earned at that job everyone said you need to have
Is it any wonder that for years, people are lost chasing these one minute, one hour, one-day pleasures and think that these are the answer to the voice that mutters ?
Low level anxiety and that feeling of discomfort that so many acknowledge exists within
The answer is, lose the whims
And go a little deeper
