It has been said that desire is delusion. It is delusion because it is based in illusion… the illusion of separation. We as a subject… desire some object that is separate and different from us… in order to make us happy. Desire is thus both illusion and delusion because in truth there is nothing separate and different from us that we could acquire that would make us happy.
In truth… there is only one. Both relative polarities are the same consciousness and consciousness is happy by nature. In other words… we as consciousness are innately happy. We cannot separate happiness and consciousness except through fantasy. We can pretend that we are not consciousness… that all and everything is not the same consciousness… and that we are not innately happy… but it is not true. In truth… there is only one consciousness… a unity in diversity… and it is innately happy. Therefore… how can you desire what you already are and already have?
When we relinquish illusory desire… based on separation… we immediately experience peace. All the conflict and resultant stress goes out of our experience. Thus it is said that the greatest tranquility is when we desire nothing.
This week… cultivate wakefulness with regard to illusory desire. Open your awareness to include all and everything as the same consciousness. Experience the happiness that is your very nature… and the very nature of all and everything. Remember… there is only one… blissful consciousness. All else is illusion.
