Growing the Good


As we explore this consciousness space, we will see that we have the power to open up the space and not to give our power away with our attention and intention or be consumed by the things that are not good for us. We need to find thoughts and ideas, that can help to lift us out.

We all have the desire to be happy and to have freedom from any wants and needs, that drive us into some kind of slavery. We want to be free of poverty, of hard work, of sadness.

So couldn’t our desire be so strong, that all the other things that would tend to pull us into contraction would be insignificant, or meaningless, because we are so consumed with the desire for the good? If we have a desire to hold on only to that which is good, if we have a desire not to give our power away, if we have a desire to look for all the tools that can help us in doing this, shouldn’t that desire be so strong, that when we become distracted, we can easily pull back and say, “No, I don’t want to go there. Let me continue to explore how I can grow and become stronger.”

Shouldn’t we grow that desire? So that when the tendency is there to be pulled into the lower or narrower points of view, we immediately feel, “No, I don’t want to go there! This space limits me! I don’t like this space! This is a dark space! I want to go in open spaces of light. I want to see more. I want to experience more.” Shouldn’t our desire for this experience of freedom and happiness be so great that we go after the tools, making the rest meaningless? Do you see when we we give the narrow points of view so much intention and attention how they grow strong? Sri Vasudeva
