Desire is the voice of the Divine speaking through you. You are the unique expression of the infinite. Spiritual writings from various faiths emphasize the importance of the heart: nurturing it, protecting it. What is referred to as the heart is the sum of your deepest desires.
The reason there is so much caution to guard your heart is to protect your desires from being hijacked by things that will enslave your freedom, such as drugs, compulsive eating, or an addictive relationship. For many years, I worked with alcoholics and drug addicts. These individuals are clear examples of how one can become imprisoned when desire becomes commandeered.
Desire is the heart of the universe
Contrastingly, when desire is concentrated on something healthy and meaningful, such as artistic expression, creating a business, or a charitable endeavor, it births something new and positive into the world.
Desire is at the heart of the universe. And associated with desire is love. Consider this, everything that exists does so because of these two forces. When you coordinate your desire with what is associated with love for yourself and others, I can assure you it will be obtained.
Your challenge is this - identify what you desire, make sure it aligns with love, and act with intention. Then it will be only a matter of time before you acquire what you desire.
