What do you want to experience in life more then anything? What is your true hearts desire? I would like to share with you why the answer to this question has great importance in your life.
We have asked this question to thousands of people and there is always a common theme. The answer is almost always to experience peace, happiness or joy. Sometimes the answer may be to have more money; and usually people realize that the reason they want to have more money is because they think that this will make them happy. Deep down every human being would simply like to experience peace and happiness.
A lot of people have not been taught to find their true desire. Many of us have forgotten about it. Other people may have had this desire a long time ago but after going through some tough situations they no longer believe it is possible to live life fully. Within all of us is a driving force and no matter what we do it will always be there. We can attempt to drown it out with food, drugs or alcohol. We can try to ignore it by working obsessively or be overwhelmed by our drama or agony to notice it. In the end, there will come a time when we must pursue it.
For myself I went through most of my life without even knowing that I had a true hearts desire. I was going through life as I thought I was supposed to. And there was always something missing. Luckily for me I suffered depression during this time and ended up wanting something more. Soon after this; someone asked me the question “What is your true hearts desire?” I answered peace. At that point I knew that the most important thing to do in my life was to experience that. After becoming clear on my heart’s desire; things in my life changed rapidly. As I focused on peace, I started to experience peace and things came into my life to support me in this desire.
Are you satisfied with the life that you are living? Be completely honest with yourself. Are you completely satisfied? If the answer to this question is no, then you owe it to yourself to find your true hearts desire. When you do find your true hearts desire, start living it right now. This does not mean that you have to make drastic changes in your life or give things up. It simply means to start taking time every day and focusing on what you truly desire. Put energy into this one simple thing and all aspects of your life will improve. It is everyone’s birthright to experience peace and joy in their life; including you. What is your hearts desire?
