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.



About Lisa Pearlman

I AM: a creatively inspired freelance Writer and iphoneographer/visual artist - Social Media Content Creator/Curator - animal rights activist - Voice for the Voiceless. I also identify as a "HSP", (empath or highly sensitive person). I feel like a modern day "Catcher in the Rye," on a mission to save the world, one sentient being at a time. But first I must turn inward, to tune into pure awareness without interference from the mind's thoughts. Connecting with Source at this transcendent level of consciousness, I am free to co-create my reality, one mindfully inspired moment at a time. I earned a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology from UMASS-Amherst. My llchosen career path was in human services, helping adults recover from addiction and/or mental illness and reintegrate into society. I worked as a counselor/case manager in a residential mental health setting as well as in correctional facilities. I hope the content I create and/or share online (and in the real world) inspires others to help co-create a kinder gentler world. By spreading awareness of injustices and educating the public through shared content, we build rapport and develop empathy, identifying and promoting shared values like Peace, Love, Compassion, Kindness, and Tolerance. My other passions include Writing, Reading, Photography/iphoneography, learning, self-improvement, Animals, Spirituality, mindfulness, Meditation, contemplation, Philosophy, problem-solving, listening to Music, HipHop, Internet Radio & blogging. I believe LOVE has the power to heal all suffering. I am forever a work in progress.

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