D is for Deep Desire

The Soul-Wise Living Alphabet

Inspired April 2013

The Soul-Wise Living Alphabet is launched to Awaken Your Spirit & empower your thinking. Words are Energy! They can lift us up and they can just as easily bring us down. Spirit driven words will raise your vibration UP. By finding the meaning these words have in your life and embracing them, one at a time each day ~ after the course of a month, The Soul-Wise Living Alphabet will have raised your energy up. My desire for you is that you are able to embrace your inner spirit  and, as a result, live In-Joy. ~ laura


D is for DEEP Desire.

Deep Desire is crucial in living from the soul and being able to live ‘in-joy’ at any given moment. Deep Desire is what fuels your fire. Sure, we all desire the casual things in life. These desires, these simple wants,  flit in and out of your day like hummingbirds in the early summer. <I desire a pedicure right now!> But, Deep Desire is what wets your appetite. It’s what creates your purpose in life. It’s what inspires you and fuels you to be all and do all the things that bring you Joy & Love to your life. 

Knowing what this Deep Desire can be difficult sometimes. You must sit quietly and allow yourself to hear the whispers of your inner soul and turn up the volume so you know, without hesitation, what that deepest desire is. Then you can embrace stepping forward with your Deep Desire and with courage knowing that your belief in it will draw that abundance of your deep desire into your life! (how’s that for a sentence of the Soul-Wise Alphabet of words so far?!

Do you know what your Deep Desire is? I’d love you to share it with me if you will!

  1. When I first started reading your post I was immediately thinking of Julia Cameron and her image of the well where we get our creative ideas from that fill our soul and the fact that I have not been writing/journaling and filling my well. I have not been just sitting in the morning and being still so I can hear and listen to the still small voice of my deep desire instead of running around like a crazy person like I have been doing lately. Thanks for the wonderful, beautiful reminder!

  2. You are welcome, Marilyn! Filling the well with your inspirational ideas is what creates that purpose~ that deep desire. I say Go for It!!! 🙂

  3. Great timing for me, because I need to sit and contemplate. Today, I started at 4.30am and by 10am I was staring at my screen asking ‘what am I doing?’. Methinks some meditation is called for.

  4. You are making me smile ~ I was up at 4 AM and am contemplating a mid day nap already to refresh my desires and it’s only 7 am here 🙂

  5. I think we’ve all been hit by exhaustion with these challenges as I see in your response to Jacqui’s comment, Laura. 🙂
    My deep desire is to make a difference to people through my words and presence and I think I am living it out to some extent. I still have a long way to go, but I’m getting there. ♥

  7. Deepest desire? That is a deep question. Need to do a little soul searching and praying to get an answer. 🙂

  8. 🙂 To be sure on both counts, Shirletta. Taking on a challenge is courageous and understanding our desires is deep 😉

  9. Deep Desire? Hmmm…in it’s simplicity I think it’s to have, like you said, joy. In any case, you got me thinking, contemplating, focusing on what really brings me joy. Thank you!

  10. Great ~ with focus comes understanding 🙂

  11. My deepest desire.. crucial craving from the soul .. Right now is to just get 8 hours of sleep 😛
    On a serious note, loved reading this post. We do need to connect with our selves to understand our deepest desires. Hopped over here as part of the A to Z challenge !

  12. Oh, Ruchira 8 hours of sleep ~ I know that desire all too well 🙂 And, rest and sleep are crucial to being able to connect fully to life! I love that!!!!!!!! 🙂

  13. I do not know my deepest desire, but you at least got me thinking about it, so thank you.

  14. That’s the first step on the path to understanding isn’t it? Thinking!!!!!!!!!!! We are so lucky to be able to be open to new ideas 🙂

  15. Deep desire – what do we really truly really want. One of the biggest questions ever. I love all the comments above and ditto them. I am not sure what I really want – for my family to be well and happy and fulfilled in their vocations. For myself? – to continue to use my creative abilities.

  16. Thanks Susan! I think that you are right: we all want our family to be health y and happy in their pursuits. But when we look at our OWN pdesires for ourselves that’s where the lagic lies for if we follow that path we are examples for our families to see. And, when we are open to our creative self, our desires come shining through 🙂

  17. I’ve never considered having a deep desire. I’m happy as I am, content with my lot as age draws me closer. Sure, I’d like to walk free of pain, I’d appreciate a smaller bum, but those can’t be called deep desires. I have a loving husband who takes care of me. I’ll appreciate him now, knowing he could go to his final rest at any time.

  18. Francene ~ perhaps that’s just it. Your deepest desire is to be happy and content and you are able to achieve that? But I also believe it’s what MAKES you happy & content that are our desires. So, i’d ask you to look at WHY are you happy and content ~ the key might be in the answer to that !
