Today’s Seth shows the importance of desire and being here now.
Over the years I logged a bit of time at a couple Buddhist temples and there it often seems that the object of meditation is to eliminate desire … part of Buddha’s eight-fold way (or something like that) recipe for non attachment.
Today's Seth quote speaks to the importance of desire and having a healthy lust for living in each moment in the Cosmic scheme of things.
Enjoy your moments!
“The greater sweep of the seasons represents the reaches of your soul. You will not attain spirituality by turning your eyes away from nature, or by trying to disentangle yourself from it. You will not “glimpse eternal life” by attempting to deny the life that you have now – for that life is your own unique path, and provides its own clues for you to follow.
“All That Is vibrates with desire. The denial of desire will bring you only listlessness. Those who deny desire are the most smitten by it. Each of your lives are miniature and yet gigantic episodes, mortal and immortal at once, providing experiences that you form meaningfully, opening up dimensions of reality available to no one else, for no one can view existence from your standpoint. No one can be you but you. There are communications at other levels, but your experience of existence is completely original, to be treasured.”
