Wondering why wanting more isn’t a bad thing?
When it comes from the heart, from the longings of your Soul, wanting more isn’t “materialistic” or selfish. Wanting more isn’t a bad thing in that case.
Why do I say that? It’s the natural order of the Universe to change, and expand. Expansion is more isn’t it? You are part of the natural world, the Universe, aren’t you? Didn’t you grow and expand physically from your start? Haven’t you grown personally? To do that, didn’t some part of you desire “more” or “different”?
Have you not tried new things? New places to live? New clothes and shoes? Haven’t your social circles changed over the years? Aren’t these all some variation of “wanting more?”
Haven’t you been hungry, or thirsty, resulting in you taking in more food and drink? Haven’t you inhaled more air with every breath you’ve taken? Even these basic needs for survival are dependent upon some want, or need, for “more”.
A Closer Look at Why Wanting More Isn’t a Bad Thing…..
When you commonly think of “wanting more” as a bad thing, what are you really thinking? Does it seem selfish? Undeserved? Materialistic?
What are you really thinking when you think of someone as “too materialistic”? Are you perhaps really thinking they don’t value life, or people, or other “higher values’?
Aren’t these all beliefs that you hold? How did you come to believe these things?
When we want some “thing”, or some “experience”, in reality we are looking for the feeling “it” will give us. Those feelings are often a sense of safety, security, confidence, pride, success, accomplishment, and/or happiness.
And, the truth is, we are capable of having those feelings without the “things” and “experiences” we often accumulate to achieve those feelings. Of course, most of us haven’t mastered the ability to survive without the basics of food, drink, air, and protective clothing and shelter, etc., but, otherwise, we can achieve the feelings without the “things”. Have you ever done that little experiment where you close your eyes and imagine biting into a lemon? You’ve convinced yourself you are having an experience which is all imaginary. Your mind is very powerful, isn’t it?
Some part of you has come to believe you need to have “things” and “experiences” to feel those feelings you crave. That mis-guided belief has you pursuing them, and attaching further beliefs to the idea of having things and experiences. And, that also causes you problems.
You have natural urges and longings related to your survival, as well as related to your Purpose. Your Soul conveys its Purpose-ful intentions to you through your inspirations, and your gut feelings that those inspirations are yours to follow. Those inspirations manifest as a desire to create what you don’t have, to do what you haven’t done. A type of “more”……
But, because of your conditioning and beliefs, you lost sight of those inspirations, and healthy desires for “more”. You forgot how, or learned not to feel good about yourself very early on. You lost your sense of peace and contentment, of feeling and being “enough”. All of which came from within you across all situations. And, you began to look outside yourself for “more”.
Wouldn’t it Be Nice…..?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have those good feelings with us whenever we want, wherever we want? You know, not attached to anyone, or anything. But, to have them naturally, effortlessly? To feel we are enough, we have enough, yet be curious about what else is possible? Across all situations. Wouldn’t that be a more peaceful, sustainable feeling?
The art of happiness and fulfillment balances the ability to “BE enough” with the desire to explore that comes from your Highest Self, from within your heart. Guiding you to not only survive, but to thrive and enjoy life living to your fullest potential. On-Purpose.
Be Free to BE You, and Have More Money and Abundance….
To do that freely, you have to free yourself from those blocks to having more money and abundance to that you are open to “more”. Money is the means we use to acquire much of what we want and need. Having it is essential to life, a part of life. How much you have is up to you. Now, do you have a better sense of why wanting more isn’t a bad thing?
