Think outside desire.
Wander into nature
Like the plants
In a garden,
Desires in your heart
Can be cultivated
Or weeded out.
Desire can lead to achievement or to bondage. It all depends on how well you manage it.
Hold fast to the desire for truth. It will keep other desires from dragging you into deception.
Irresistible desire is a myth. People have demonstrated that any desire can be controlled and kept in check.
Desire isn’t one of the 5 senses. It doesn’t reveal reality. Desire needs to be made to align with reality, not vise versa. Cultivate within you the desire to be free from controlling desires that try to compel you to go against your conscience.
Desire is a terrible master that leads us into unproductive habits and bondage. Before you begin to follow a desire, decide if you want to be its servant.
Desire tries to require you to dance to its tune. However, the more you do, the more it will ensnare you in its barbed wire.
If you don’t make your desires follow logic and reason, your logic and reason will become enslaved to our desires. Desires are like dogs. If you don’t train them to be under your control, they’ll continually cause you problems.
If you don’t desire truth more than your own feelings, wants, opinions, and thoughts, you’ll find falsehood. If you don’t cultivate within yourself a strong desire not to be deceived, you will be.
If our desires, feelings, thoughts, and opinions are controlling our life, the living Jesus isn’t. Make Jesus your Lord.
