Chapter 2: Desire

This is probably the 4th or 5th time I read this chapter, and each time it just gets better. The story of his son and how he overcame what many said would be impossible should be proof enough, that if one desires a thing coupled with faith, that they will surely have it.

"Desire backed by faith knows no such word as impossible."

The magic word in this is FAITH. The simplest definition of faith is believing without seeing in physical form. A strong enough desire, without resistance, will soon manifest for anyone that believes it shall be so. Several weeks ago, I placed a desire in my mind so strong to attract like-minded individuals so that I may pass along to them what I have been given. I believe that they have already found me, and every day I find myself speaking with another person who possesses the same desires as myself. Our desire isn't money or material things, it is time freedom and to be able to enjoy our lives. Of course, earning enough money will give us these things, but the true desire are to enjoy the things that money cannot buy; such as our family time and being able to travel to places that we have only read about or have seen in movies. 

As for faith, I have personally developed a faith stronger than ever as manifestations of my desires a revealed daily. I am believing more and more that I am a leader in my company, I have positions in the corporate world that I have not even interviewed for, I am sitting at the beach on a tropical island watching my family have the time of their lives, and all of those wonderful things. I even speak of these things as if they are already in my physical world, and to those that do not understand the law of attraction, I am sure that I sound like a lunatic. I do not care, because my belief is what brings my desires into fruition.

As I have matured, I have learned that desire is not merely "wanting" things... no, it is something that burns inside of us that guides us through each day. One of the most important lessons I have learned, is the universe will not allow us to manifest our desires alone. People are placed in our lives so that we can pass what we have learned along to them, and in that giving... we are blessed beyond our asking in many ways.

Hold onto your desire, and keep your focus on the journey. The journey is the best part from desire to manifestation, and as I said last week... it's the journey that builds our character! 

Because you are worth it,
