    "Ravenous desire for the highest aspiration of our life" leads to Happiness

    Mitch Horowitz is someone who researches American Positivist Spirituality (displayed on its surface level and trivialized in "The Secret"). He is in an interview here with Regina Meredith that really speaks to me. Like him, I am not at all convinced that to be desireless is at all my path. I seek to be in a Miracle Club with others who feel a passion for directed self change to explore the great potential I feel is real. This is the potential to experience the material world full of riches we have yearned to know.

    I think we have been guided away from believing we can, deserve to be and should desire to be HAPPY in physical. IMO to contribute productive, renewing, creative new ways for old needs to be fulfilled is a beautiful passion. I think that change is a constant but I do have faith that we were placed in a body with a mind and heart and inclinations to EXPRESS desires. It makes me terrifically happy to find I am not the only one.

    In an age that especially needs big doses of truth, fueled by a "ravenous desire" for the highest aspirations in our lives, this message is a breath of fresh air. Mitch Horowitz, one of my favorite interviewees on my Open Minds show on GaiaTV, talks with us about how the New Age movement has reached a point that demands that we commit to a mature and "generative" path in our development. Eloquent and profound, Mitch's perspectives are like a truth salve that helps us take our lives on in a very real way, to manifest the parts of ourselves that we hold dearest. This is, in my opinion, a MUST WATCH video.

    I have been contemplating what I mean for my own use of the elemental desire. I liken desire to the spirit of romance and the tantalizing mysteries. I had a past life regression in which I day dreamed a very old sick man in a dungeon. I was there in my imagination with his feeling of humility. He was reduced to a state where he lost his pride. But I was in awe of the story I imagined because he had been proud of his knowledge which menat nothing at this end. I glimpsed a story of him leaving his home and family to pursue the mysteries. He had traveled and learned enough to feel pride in his mind. He wanted fame. He talked too much. he attracted the attention of the wrong people and he could not deliver what they wanted so he was thrown in the dungeons to die.

    In this reverie my deepest desire was to contact my daughter. She was at the home he had abandonned with her own family. I composed a letter. I had no one to take it to her. I was broken in such unfulfilled desire to be home. My humility was that I had never needed to look for knowledge because it won't carry us home in time to enjoy life and what we crave at the end... our beloveds. In the trance I took his letter and made it part of my story. I felt like the daughter who one day felt her father and knew he loved her and I felt like the daughter wrapping her arms around me. It was an experience that is part of my mythology.

    Magic is what is MINE right in my own back yard. I now imagine that part of me as a companion. He is sometimes with me talking over what he learned. I absolutely intend to have full use of my own knowledge that can neither be stolen or sold and used all I wish. IMO magic's fuel is our own real desire expressed and the result is..... what could it be? Magic.

    Is desire what god disguises herself in?
    The critics say that god first raises up what she would destroy?
    Perhaps that is because desire can never be fulfilled. It is like a catylyst that cannot and will not be altered. It is not consumed in objects of desire. But that is so romantic!

    What I am meditating upon is that those who KNOW they are not the body, the matrix is false and that we create through belief can wisely follow desire without fear.I perceive this as having swept the old order away.

    more music of my longing of divine romance(the Leelah of which I am in and is within me)

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    Oh, that's another nice one! You're keeping it within the animal realm. I'm going to add that to the cattylist.
