Where we place our attention makes all the difference to Creation. It seems it would be wise to be alert to, and careful with, where we place our attention. In The Radiance Sutras by Lorin Roche, there is some guidance about being alert and attentive when it comes to desire.
Just as desire leaps up, and you perceive the flash, the sparkle, quit from its play, and maintain awareness in that clear and shining place from which all desire springs.
We are human. We want things. We want people. We want recognition. We want sleep. We want food. Desire is an enchanting dimension of human experience. But to practice keeping a soulful distance from the pressing push and pull of desire gives great pleasure, too. Focus awareness on the source of all desire so that the push and pull of desire transforms into expressions of your devotion and goodness. .
May you enjoy the infinite gifts of focusing your awareness on the source of all desire. Shine on!
