What is a Desire?

A Desire is a goal or a destination. It comes from our heart. It is an inherent need. When we obtain it, it will contribute to our becoming the best we can be. When we have a Desire we are striving to achieve something. We have a purpose to our life.

One of the easiest ways to visualize our relationship with our Desire is to think of it as a destination (see Figure 1). If our present location is at Point A, then our Desire is at Point B. Our goal is to leave Point A and journey to Point B.

We can have various Desires that we’re working to obtain that are not in conflict with each other. We experience Conflict when we have two or more opposing Desires. When we seek to obtain one, we get further away from obtaining the other. When we face challenges like this, we must make a choice between them.
