How to get what you want

What do you want more than anything?  It is a real blessing to know what you want (or don’t want).  If you’re not sure or you want validation, take a look at what you think about the most and what you spend your time doing.  What you focus on, you become.

“What you want with all your heart

is what will manifest sooner or later.”

Paramahansa Yogananda is attributed with saying, “If you truly want to realize God, you must want God like a drowning man wants air.”  Do you want to wake up that badly?  Not everyone needs to become enlightened. The most important thing is to be honest with yourself.  If you don’t really want something, then you will be miserable pursuing it.  Figure out what you want right now, and then reassess that from time to time.

“What you want can change.

There’s no right or wrong.”

Advanced Path book

Here’s a simple formula for getting what you want:

  • If you want power and success, develop your personal power and use personal will to manifest the things you want in your life.
  • If you want peace and happiness, align your personal will to the will of Spirit and live in a state of openness, fluidity and flexibility.
  • If you want to wake up, release your personal will and the limited self altogether.

Understand that those are not necessarily mutually-exclusive.  The enlightened can be very successful, and aligning one’s will to Spirit can create powerful possibilities that you never imagined.  However, personal will and fixed identities will prevent you from waking up.

“Start with what you want right now.

Listen to your heart.”
