A couple of days ago I woke up with this phrase in my mind – I desire my life – and at first I thought I knew exactly what it means. Of course, what better than to desire your own life? To want it so much that you can’t stand it. To desire it with all the perfections and the imperfections, all the everything, desire it to its deepest essence.
But, then I realized that I don’t really know what this phrase means, that it goes beyond just the surface and that there’s a much deeper and richer meaning here. Yes, I love my life, but what does, I desire my life mean? I’ve been thinking on this ever since. I even wrote it down on a sticky note and stuck it on my fridge.
Sometimes I get a message, a phrase, or a word that pops into my mind and I don’t always know the why, the meaning, or what I’m suppose to do with this. The answer is not always clear and in plain view.
I think that sometimes when we get a message, we’re meant to just sit with it and be patient with it. It’s like the universe has planted a seed that we have to allow to take root, and grow, unfold and reveal itself in its own time, divine time. We’re meant to take a journey with it, there are things that need to get uncovered along the way.
Maybe I should take the question and turn it around and ask – what about my life do I not desire? This one question may be enough to bring to light what has been hidden from me, something I haven’t thought of before, but that I need to explore to open a new doorway within.
So my journey with – I desire my life – begins. I have no idea where it will lead me to, or how it will unfold, but I’m trusting and welcoming the process that will open a deeper knowing within.
Does this resonate with you? Does it spark an idea for you? If you’re feeling it I’d love to hear from you.
