Q&A: Is It a Wrong Desire?
What do you think about judging what we want? Is there any such thing as a right or wrong desire?
I’ve been a strong proponent of identifying one’s true desire in order to better manifest it. There are also some desires I’ve seen creators work with that were bounded by limiting beliefs.
(As in, “I want to manifest more money so I enjoy life more.” Listen, that’s a crazy ass myth that money and enjoyment go hand in hand. If you want “this” in order to get “that,” just focus on “that” for heaven’s sake.) omg, I’m doing it, aren’t I?! Judging one’s desire! hmm.
We also hear many LOA teachers suggesting that our manifesting success is dependent on holding “noble” desires. That it can’t from ego, has to be based in service to others, whatever. That’s so easy for me to put in the “bunchacrap” category. (But I could be wrong!)
Back to the question that started this post, I like the way this reader worded it:
Is it possible to want something for the wrong reasons, or is it true that all desires are valid?
I’m asking because my best friend thinks I’m misguided in wanting to manifest my ex-boyfriend back. And I think she’s wrong in trying to lose weight before she starts dating again.
When I heard myself lecturing that she shouldn’t want to lose weight for anyone else – it should be from her own heart’s desire – she said it was from her heart’s desire. I realized we’re each judging each other’s desires and maybe that’s not how it works? Doesn’t Abraham say that we get to want whatever we want?
I’d love your thoughts on this.
What say you, wise ones … are all desires created equal or is it worth refining what we think we want?
