THE POWER OF WANTING
WHY IT’S SPIRITUAL TO WANT MORE
I want to take my son to Disneyland Paris.
I want to own a 120-foot yacht and sail the Greek Riviera.
I want to eat Brussel sprouts in Brussels, croissants in France, and Gruyère in Switzerland.
I want to lay with my lover on white-sand beaches in Bali.
I want to ride horses in Costa Rica.
I want to dance the samba, the salsa, and the merengue.
I want to see the dawn in a hot air balloon in wine country.
I want to navigate the rapids of the Colorado.
I want a handmade jacket made of leather so soft it feels like silk on my skin.
I want to rule the world.
And it all started with a whisper.
Perhaps the hardest part of life is that we have been taught to think that we are only entitled to our fair share (if not less). The gentle lie of prosperity is that none of us is actually encouraged to be prosperous.
We are encouraged to live small and want only what we can see and not what we can dream.
Why? Well, I was hoping you might ask.
The modern era is predicated on the idea of the worker-bee. The workers of the world cannot dream big. They cannot aspire to want to much. They cannot want to make the kind of changes that give them a life other than the one they are living.
This is important because the worker-bee is the backbone of the engine that runs everything. That may seem harsh but it is true. Worker-bees work and we are happy to let them do so. It is not a bad life if it is one that makes you happy, and many worker-bees are very, very happy.
It is enough to be able to afford the occasional luxury.
It is enough to save up time and money to take a vacation every two years
(if it all).
It is enough to get married, have 2 kids, get the dog, buy the house, and settle in for the next 18 years.
And if that is what you want, then bless you. You can stop reading now.
If you are still reading, you have heard the whisper. I call this the Power of Wanting.
The Power of Wanting pulls you to a different way of life.
It asks you to work through the barriers that keep you just working and not reaching for something more.
It asks you to trust that wanting more than what you have is the okay.
It is more than okay; the Power of Wanting is the spark that can change your life. Because when you give space to a want, you have to displace something else.
You have to move something else along so you can make room for a new desire and that is scary as hell. You might move along things you should do or so no to things you once felt obligated to do. You might say yes too.
Most people have been sold a bill of goods that says:
All the world is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death. You are that sucker. Thank you for your purchase.
We embrace this idea because they have been told over and over again that we should be content.
That we should not want what we can’t have; that we don’t come from people who do things “like that,” that we are not enough; that we cannot have it all.
But, something in you has shifted. You heard a word or a song; saw an animal or a double-rainbow and decided you might want a little bigger piece of the pie.
You might want a different plan for the future.
You might want a pair of red-sole shoes.
You might want something else entirely that is surprisingly YOU.
Unleashing the Power of Want tells the Universe that it can open a new path. You are ready to claim an energetic space that was once just a void.
You are ready to say YES even if, right now, it is only a whisper. Because in that whisper lies your freedom.
The freedom to want.
The freedom to wish.
The freedom to work.
The freedom to prosper.
