    How to get clear for our desire? Here clear means, Remain clear consciously and unconsciously in alignment with your desire.

    Any ideas for this???

    Welcome and share your opinions.:)

    I find an idea that keeps coming up with me is that of letting go. Have your desire in your heart, yes, but do not grasp it. There is lots that goes on in this mode...emptying ourselves, stepping away from our presuppositions and linear plans, removing fear, perhaps even seeing our aspirations in deeper ways and appreciating them all the more, even if some cost is involved. In a manner of speaking, one might say we allow our aspirations to align us, not visa versa. In this way we can almost breathe with what we seek and it can be just that natural to do so.

    Interesting comment you have made here. It is right, that we should get empty at the end of day, to make space for those things which will help us reaching to desires. Remove old ideas and make space for new ones. It looks like welcome life... :D

    This helped me,thank you.

    Woaaaa...i have lots to say about them. Scientologist that is...


    hmmm...u sound like Bruce lee. Your talking just like him.

    Shai that is a TIGHT ass picture....(i still dont know....are we allowed to curse on here?...i dont remember figuring that part out on here.)...:m190:

    But in my own words to the Thread....

    I mean that question confuses me. I would think to get CLEAR you would merely have to be honest with urself and know what you truly want right? i mean...if im hearing ur question right....

    I have been having trouble with this a bit since a few weeks ago

    I have things I want but it's not clear
    Sometimes you desire things, but it's not really what you want. You have to go deeper, simplify

    I find the more I think about it, day after day it refines itself and gets clearer and clearer

    do we ever really know what we want? when we get what we want...we then want something else...constantly looking for satisfaction, reaction, distraction...is it ever enough?

    You are thinking to go deeper, because you need knowledge and ability to apply in your life.

    If your target is clear and you can watch your win, then you will achieve those deeper knowledge. It's fun, you know :D

    Yes, we know very well. What we want in our life? But we are not activating it as our desire. We always get attached with it emotionally or like in other manner.

    We should go for satisfaction and distraction. If you apply these to your wanting(desire), you will achieve it like magnet attracts metals to it. We should keep desire in such a way, if we don't have that thing we will be happy. With or without be happy to have it.

    ...but these are merely meaningless little things we desire along the way to what we are truly after...is it not shallow to seek these things, enjoy them for now...only to toss them aside later when we get what we really want...Or do we settle for the distraction and the satisfaction...to mask what we really want...because what we really want is to scary...too big...there fore we never get what we want because deep down we know we dont deserve it...

    *disclaimer...I am REALLLY drunk*

    Distraction and satisfaction are not for masking the thing you wanted. They are tool to get the things. You seem confused about these things and i reminded one quote:

    Confusion is the state before getting clear.

    Distraction: You are not attached with thing. You are just expressing your feelings and desire for the thing.

    Satisfaction: You are satisfied with the thing you have. This is also saying you are asking more of it, gently.

    I said, because this explanation is in my mind.

    I know, our desire are big, and we should keep them big. Never aim for low. :D BIg dreams leads to big thinking, big thinking leads to big work, big work leads to big success, big success leads to satisfaction, if we can identify it.

    No Im not confused...

    I know what I want in life...But...the reach is too far...so I distract myself...with things...a house, a car, a business, life...then Its easy for me to say I cant reach it...Life is in the way...

    Meager satisfaction from mediocrity...materialism...suburbia...

    Its like I have...steak...a nice t bone...its tender and juicy...but I really wanted Fillet Mignon...I was satisfied and distracted by the tbone...while never getting what I truly wanted...
