What is Your Burning Desire?

written by Maggie Sale Ostara, PhD

Inside of you there is a burning desire. Can you feel it? Are you connected to the fire that is yours ~ that has your face on it, if you will?

At the core of your Being your radiance comes through the portal of your heart, from the Soul Level into ordinary reality. Your own unique contribution unfolds in front of you as you step down life’s path ~ as you step more and more into your Soul Signature.

When you connect with that burning desire and bring it through into the world through the vehicle of a business, you no longer are “working” because you are doing what you love to do. You are in alignment. You have energy. You are excited. You know you are on the path, even when you don’t know exactly what to do.

Are you distracted, overworking, procrastinating, burned out, stuck or confused? These are signs that you are not on purpose, you are not living from that burning desire. Instead you are living from your will center, and probably from your belief system that says you have to work hard in order to be successful (or stay alive). The thing is, if this belief system takes over, it can even make doing what you love not fun–because you are also pushing too hard, not noticing the inner messages that it’s time to take a break, or do something different.

Let me say one thing about purpose. Purpose is not a thing that you find–a treasure buried in a chest somewhere that you have to find, dig up, and carry around with you.

Purpose is more of a verb than a noun: it emerges, unfolds, and evolves as you move along the path of your life. Your evolving purpose provides a map to your inner landscape. Being “on purpose” means you are engaged in the process of life ~ and you are pursing that which makes you feel alive, your burning desire.

Just like your Soul Signature, you step into your purpose over and over again.

If you pursue a career or business because you believe you can make money doing it, but you are not connected with your passion, two things will happen. One is that you will not be drawing on the power of your Soul, but will be relying on your mental capacity. And as formidable as that is, it is miniscule in comparison with the vision, wisdom, energy, and power of your Soul, the larger, eternal part of you. The other is that in relying on your mental capacity, you will get burned out and become prey to fear because you are operating at far less than your actual potential. And as a result, you will not be as successful–financially otherwise–as you could be.

Your burning desire signals your connection with your purpose, your Soul’s longing for engagement with the earth plane, to create in material reality. So if you are feeling stuck, lackadaisical, tired, uncertain, go inside.

B R E A T H E.

Open to the wisdom and guidance that is inside of you. Because you already know. Inside you already have that burning desire. And when you allow it to come fully into your life and your business you open to the miraculous.

You tap in to the true treasure ~ the treasure of you.
