Brian Johnson, "not to have but to be"


"A true desire is not to have but to be. We are whole creatures in potential, and the true purpose of desire is to unfold that wholeness, to become what we can be."

-- Eric Butterworth from "Spiritual Economics"

As Goethe says, "Desire is the presentiment of our inner abilities, and the forerunner of our ultimate accomplishments."

Wow. Butterworth continues with this wisdom:
"The mystic ideal, so often missed, is really simple: build on the awareness of ever-present substance and expand your faith in the stability of your own inner wholeness. The things will come too, and in abundance. But they will come out of expanse of your wholeness, not at its expense."

Abundance will come out of expanse of your wholeness but not at its expense. EXPAND (!) your wholeness and watch the abundance flow. In that order. Another Question: What are you doing today to expand your wholeness? (Besides reading this Note? (which, btw, is a wonderful way to expand. :)

"There's nothing capricious in nature, and the implanting of a desire indicates that its gratification is in the constitution of the creature that feels it."

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The goal should not be to make money or acquire things, but to achieve the consciousness through which the substance will flow forth when and as you need it.”

-- Eric Butterworth from "Spiritual Economics"
