In The Goddess Academy Group on Facebook we have a powerful tradition called Thirstday, where we post the things we desire/thirst for.
I encourage people to embrace their desires, primarily because desires inspire growth.
When you thirst for something that is significantly different from your current reality you have to be willing to change in order to have that which you desire.
Say if you currently have R50 000 in your savings account but you want to have R500 000, you need to understand that you can’t become a person who has half a million in savings while you remain exactly as you are right now. The current you does NOT behave in a way that leads to R500 000 in the bank. Current you behaves in a way that leads to R50 000 in the bank. You will have to change, to get from here to there.
If you have been single for longer than you care to remember, but really thirst for a life partner, you will have to change. Current you does not behave in a way that results in commitment to a life partner. Current you behaves in a way that leads to being single. You will have to change, to get from here to there.
If you weigh 80 kilos but want to weigh 55 kilos, you will have to change. Current you does not expend energy like people who weigh 55 kgs, she does not eat like a person who weighs 55 kgs, she does not process her emotions like a person who weighs 55 kgs. She expends energy like someone who weighs 80 kgs, eats like someone who weighs 80 kgs, processes her emotions like someone who weighs 80 kgs. You will have to change, to get from here to there.
“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
You can’t get THAT from here.
Have you ever considered that your desires are messengers sent to signal, not that it is time to HAVE something different, but to BE someone different?
