What Do We Desire

What Do We Desire?

I believe within our human nature there are certain innate desires universal to all human beings on our planet, regardless of culture, race, ethnicity, economic class or religion. We all desire to feel happiness through connection to another human being, to feel we belong, we are loved, we matter to someone. We desire to be free from pain and suffering, or to at least lessen the perception/feeling of suffering when pain is present. Lastly, I believe we inherently desire some sort of spiritual (not necessarily religious) connection, whether this desire be conscious or unconscious. In our pursuit of this higher consciousness, we seek to connect with our inner being, or higher power, that transcends all physical and mental realms, that embodies all that is, was and ever will be. An all-knowing intangible entity that connects us all to ourselves, each other, our non-self/higher power/God and the Universe. That which embodies our ultimate purpose in this life and beyond, that embodies the Yin and Yang, the Alpha and Omega, the totality.

    So true… we all desire to find some meaning in this life, some spiritual connection, that defines who we are.
