Wanting.....

Wanting is universal. We all have something we want. Sometimes those wants are huge and overwhelming. Sometimes, those wants are simple and humbling. Regardless of what it is that we want, too much wanting can strangle the beauty in just being, in presence. Wanting can be a finely danced balance. But if you do a few things right, you'll experience more of what it is that you want without being poisoned by the wanting. Maxie McCoy


Have you ever wanted anything so much that it hurt?

Have you ever wanted something so much that you felt that you would lose your mind?

Have you ever wanted a thing so badly that you deserted all manner of common sense?

Yes, my friends, the Universal wanting! What do you do when the Universal wanting takes over?


My top 5 tips


1. Know your Why- Why is the want so pressing

 

2. Patience. Patience. Patience.


4. Trust is essential


5. Take responsibility


6. Do the Work


Peace
