Goals and desires give you a reason to "go" and a direction to take.
Of course, you will want to choose goals and desires that, once achieved, will bring some benefit to your life.
But it is also, even more so, about the journey or the trip.
What you encounter along the way, and how you respond, will detemine the quality of your life path.
You may choose a path that is light, easy, and brings great joy to your life. But if it does not challenge or expand your capacity to Love, or your knowingness of who you are, then it may not have lasting value.
Or, you may choose a path that challenges and expands your capacity to Love and know yourSelf, and then you have the best combination of journey and destination.
Or, you may choose a path that is dark and requires that you carry your own light carefully within you. This path may not bring immediate pleasure, satisfaction, or joy, but if it results in greater Self awareness, expansion of Self, and capacity to Love then it can have tremendous lasting value.
But be careful! The journey may be long and dark, and you may not reach your destination if you get lost in the darkness!
There is no right or wrong way to go.
Remember Gratitude, no matter what path you find yourSelf on.
It is all for your highest and best good.
