Wanting more is a part of life.
More belongs in life.
Wanting more is life, seeking fulfillment.
When we examine nature, it is a constant cycle of expansion and growth. If you look at my front yard, the weeds are growing more and more. When you look at the trees, the leaves fall and winter comes but when summer rolls around, the tree has more life and is bigger than the year before.
Kids wanting more is the urge of life. That’s why, when you take them to a toy store, they are not “satisfied” because there’s so much more that they want. Even when you buy them something, they find another something they want.
But, what do we tell them? We say, don’t ask for that, you can’t have that. When will you ever be satisfied? Why aren’t you grateful? You’re asking for too much.
Over time, kids stop asking for more because they no longer feel like it’s safe. They could get yelled at, they won’t get what they want anyway, so, what’s the point?
As they get closer to finishing high school, they are asked, what do you want to be when you grow up? It was no longer acceptable to say, astronaut, you had to pick something more sensible and stable now.
Is it a wonder why, when someone asks you what you want, that it’s so difficult to say?
How do you reconcile this?
You need to give yourself permission to dream and want again.
Connect back to your desires.
This is a process.
A good start on this journey is to join us in the Daily Dose of Healing. In the month of September, we’re working through worthiness. Teachings include: nervous system origin, childhood beliefs, clearing triggers, etc.
