What Do You Want?


I want to remember my contentment is within me.

I want to live my life loving you and all.

I want to fully be who I am appreciating what I do.

I want to allow myself to do what is meaningful and live with gratitude everyday.

What Do You Really Want?

If you could have anything, what would you want?

If you knew you could have one wish, what would it be?

If you knew you had one more day on the earth, what would you do?

Are you living as though you and your life matter?

Most people want things they think will make them happy.

Many people want to go somewhere or find somebody to make them happy.

Some people want to avoid or clear up or get rid of problems and pain.

A few people want to make those around them happy.

People look outside themselves for happiness and inner peace.

People have been taught that happiness is transitory.

People are afraid to be happy because it might end in disappointment.

People often feel unworthy of being happy when others are not.

You may think what you don’t have will make you happy.

You may believe what others have will make you happy.

You may want what is marketed and sold will make you happy.

What you really want is to be happy with yourself and your life.

When you choose true happiness, you find it is an inside job.

What you really want is an experience.

The experience has qualities that you desire.

You desire these qualities because you already have experienced them.

Look for what you really value. 

Is being rich more important that feeling safe?

Would you rather travel or live in a harmonious home?

Do you want to feel free or restricted by the things you own?

There are many questions to ask yourself to find what you really want.

Explore, experiment and discover what is your truth.

Everyone is here to seek and find what is within themselves.

When you find what is yours to have and be and do, you will be fulfilled.

It is in our searching for what we really want that we come to know ourselves.

When we know what is ours to be and do and have, we are at peace.

When we are at peace, the desire for something more dissipates.

When we no longer have wants, we are content and at home within.

Life seems to be like chasing dreams, goals, people and things, until it no longer is.

When we are content or happy within, we seek to serve, to love and remember with Gratitude.

Consider this day and everyday you can have what you really want when you are clear.

Give up what is temporary and dependent on the ephemeral reality.

Loving you is my happiness and my way home.
