Your Deepest Desire
“In the desire of the One to know Himself, we exist.”― Rumi
Congratulations! Today we complete the first week of our journey together. This week we have learned about the power of our desires and how to use Nature to fulfill them. We have learned that happiness and fulfillment are our birthright, and that the most effective way to manifest our dreams is also the easiest way.
Today we discover that our deepest desire is for spiritual awakening, which is the state of fulfillment and completeness. All other desires are variations on this basic desire for actualization. Every desire is a fragment of our being that seeks awakening, completion, and wholeness.
My deepest desire is for completeness.
I am pure bliss.
Welcome to Day 7 – Your Deepest Desire. Well, we’re already completing our first week of connecting with our dreams and how to fulfill them. I’m hoping you’re feeling the energy of attraction within you in a new way. Can you see it showing up?
We’ve begun to align with the deepest part of ourselves where we find the connective tissue between our desires and the power that’s waiting to help manifest them. We’ve seen how desiring from the level of your truest self and trusting the universe to respond to that truth, that’s how you get what you want.
It’s the most powerful path to fulfillment. Focusing, getting clear, embracing positive emotions, surrendering and moving with the current of your true-self. These are the cornerstones of manifesting the life you want.
Today Deepak brings us back to the place where our most whole, powerful intentions reside…within…that is the source of joy, the source of freedom, the source of wholeness. It’s the core from which the energy of attraction gets lit up. There we’ll take the next steps toward making our real dreams, the true ones, come into being.
My energy of attraction is totally different today than when I was active in my disease of alcoholism. As a matter of fact, I felt anything but whole. While I sat in Group in a 28- day alcohol treatment program, the group was asked to repeat every morning an affirmation we came up for ourselves. Mine was “I am a good person. I am a whole person,” but in my mind I was neither good nor whole and I hated myself for getting into a place where I couldn’t go a day without drinking.
On my new journey in recovery and with the help of the treatment program, Alcoholics Anonymous, and learning self-care through meditation experiences such as this, I am finally in touch with my true-self. And a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I am finally feeling the joy, freedom and wholeness the Universe, Nature, God, my Higher Power has intended for me!
Congratulations for completing the first week of our meditation experience. You’ve acquired the foundation for turning intentions into reality. I’m sure there have been surprises along the way because this vision of effortlessly achieving what you want isn’t like the conventional advice given by society.
In my sobriety I have been painstakingly trying to unlearn the conventional advice given me by society. It definitely didn’t nurture my highest good. With the help of AA’s 12 Steps and working with a trusted sponsor, I have learned how fear-based I have behaved most of my life. Because of society!
So I am unlearning that “more is better”, more money, more power, more stuff. I am unlearning to gain your approval because your approval doesn’t serve me. I am unlearning to put these superficial goals first and to take care of me, to nurture me, to love me for who and what I am. I am finally free to be myself!
You’ve learned that the world in here is connected to the world out there which means that your intentions can flow from your true self to find fulfillment in every area of life. People may spend a lot of time and energy making their desires very, very specific. But what really gives any desire its power is how strongly it’s connected to the ground of being…the true-self.
Behind every desire, however small, is the energy of attraction, which brings the outcome of desire. The energy of attraction is most powerful near the source, just as electricity is most powerful when it comes out of the generator. Therefore, your deepest desires are actually the easiest to fulfill.
No doubt this comes as a surprise since conventional wisdom holds just the opposite. Your deepest desires can come true naturally and without struggle because your deepest desires are signals from your true-self. The force of evolution in the universe supports whatever is true and promotes harmonious growth.
The desires people spend the most time chasing after, such as more money, a better job, and a bigger home, also employ the energy of attraction. But the path that follows is weaker and more indirect. Why? Because the focus is on the external goal not on consciousness.
This isn’t to judge against getting a nicer life, but when you pursue love, beauty, creativity, innovation, meaning and a higher vision of life, the energy of attraction becomes much stronger. Its strength comes from wholeness. The more whole you are, the more powerful your intentions.
It’s the same as seeing a whole picture of Niagara Falls or the Grand Canyon instead of the scattered pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. The picture is there in the scattered pieces, but it’s not whole enough to recognize.
A secret of the World’s Wisdom Traditions is that every single desire, no matter how small, is working toward one goal…to make you more complete. Only through feeling whole will you feel fulfilled. Through meditation you get in touch with the primal desire for wholeness, happiness and freedom. Let this be your personal vision. We should also embrace every smaller, more specific desire along the way.
Getting sober has allowed me to put the pieces of “my” puzzle together and start to make sense of this journey called my life. It’s been magical. It’s been meaningful. And it’s been necessary to bring me to the place today, which is right where I am supposed to be…and it is perfect!
Today I feel complete, whole, fulfilled and content. Just like The Promises state in the AA Big Book, “You will find a new happiness and a new freedom”. I have, indeed, found these gifts, along with immense gratitude. And today I have been given a purpose and excitement to give back what was so freely given me in my despair. I “get to” share my Experience, Hope and Strength with everyone who enters my “Dee Bubble”, offering respect, mindfulness, compassion and love.
Thank you for being here for me. Know that I am here for you so please contact me anytime. Together we can get through anything and make our world a better place!
With warmest aloha, Dee Harris

As we prepare to meditate together let’s take a moment to consider our centering thought, “My deepest desire is for completeness. My deepest desire is for completeness.” Now let’s prepare for our meditation.
Make yourself comfortable and close your eyes. Begin to become aware of your breath and just breathe, slowly and deeply. With each breath allow yourself to become more deeply relaxed.
Now gently introduce the mantra, “Ananda Hum.” This mantra awakens the state of fulfillment that is your true self. As you repeat the mantra feel the sense of completeness, the joy and sense of wholeness of your inner being. Repeat it silently to yourself, “Ananda Hum.” With each repetition feel your body, mind and spirit open and receive just a little more.
Whenever you find yourself distracted by thoughts, noises or physical sensations, simply return your attention to silently repeating the mantra, “Ananda Hum. Ananda Hum. Ananda Hum.”
Please continue with your meditation. I’ll mind the time and when it’s time to end you’ll hear me ring a soft bell. “Ananda Hum. Ananda Hum. Ananda Hum.” Just mentally, “Ananda Hum. Ananda Hum. Ananda Hum.”
