be full of desire 4/26 (audio 1:51)

The Magic Circle, John William Waterhouse, 1886

This is the fourth installment of “Be Ready for the Wonderful:
Words of Well-Being to Ease Your Way Through Change.”

Be Full of Desire

It is not enough to want change in the way you want a new pair of shoes or even a new car. Your desire to bring about renewal in your life must burn hot and deep within you. You must ache for lasting happiness and yearn for greater authenticity in all aspects of living. Only then can you convert that desire into action.

You can read books about creating a more genuine and fulfilling social life, attend workshops that guarantee a more abundant lifestyle, or sign up for classes that promise to make over  your spiritual journey — but personal transformation is much more than an intellectual exercise.

It begins with a spark of desire fueled by a laser-sharp focus that remains with you night and day. True hunger for change is a force to be reckoned with. Offer it your healthy respect and careful attention, and this force can be channeled to a powerful end.

But first, you must want it with every fiber of your being — like you’ve never wanted anything before.
