Our Four Real Desires

We really only desire four things:

  1. Freedom
  2. To Create
  3. To Love
  4. Growth

When we combine these four things in a way that matters personally, our lives fill with joy.

It can help to rate these four areas on a scale of 1 to 2.  1 means my life could use more of this and 2 means this is good.

Do you want more in all four areas?  That puts you as far ahead as anyone.  None of these desires ever end.  Every day you desire them.  Can you get these things, then relax?  No.  But you can relax now.

So, how do we do that?  Like this:

Realize we can experience all of these, now, as much as anyone can.


Can a person in a wheelchair feel free, and an Olympian feel trapped?

Can a grandmother love a teen who doesn’t care about anyone?

Can a person with a low IQ create and a person with a high IQ not?

Can a third world person change to improve their life while a millionaire stagnates?
