Close but no cigar (damn I have to quit those things!).
When our innermost heart's desire becomes synonymous with the will of God, which is the honest and authentic will to love, then our desire becomes
like a spring of living water (spirit) welling up to eternal life, and in that domain of new possibility, the types of distinctions which lead to
suffering and hellishness, are dissolved.
All unnecessary suffering or bad karma, being fundamentally irrational and absurd, leads to conscious suffering (awareness) leads to the end of
suffering and the realization of that which is eternal deep within, which truly satisfies without exhausting itself.
We were thus made ultimately for heaven, yet may have a few hellish roads to go down along the way, but that said it's important to remember that hell
has no bottom, so it's best to take wing and begin to fly right now and begin to experience heaven and the good life as it was meant to be lived, and
ourselves as we were created.
"How happy are the meek, peacemakers, humble, those who thirst for righteousness (what's right) etc etc for they SHALL be satisfied."
There is another type of desire which draws us into koinonia (deep mutual participatory sharing in communion) and thus into a relationship with God.
So we're created for the good life, for happiness and joy of the lasting kind that isn't contingent upon circumstance, but we might have to go to hell
first in order to discover what we do not want, and hey "he who's been forgiven more, loves more!"
There's no amount of sin that can overtake the grace of God, thank goodness.
The difficulty is WHAT we are desiring, whereby there is always an attachment to an outcome of some kind even at the most fundamental quantum physical
level - free will and choice is wired right into the very fabric of creation.
But a man without any desire whatsoever, isn't really a man, and if he just "sits", he accomplishes nothing.
That there's so much misguided desire and endless unnecessary suffering in this world then, is really an awesome opportunity of the farthest reaching
proportions for the one who's able to overcome that world and realize, even if only in part, to begin with, the kingdom of heaven, which is of the
very nature of things as they really and truly are, and desire is to fit right into that nature which is the nature of God who is spirit and truth and
life and the reality as it is. "And to him I will give all these things and I will call him my son."
The problem is that we desire that which leads us away from God/truth/spirit/life, because at some level we are terrified of what we really are and
the life that God intended for us, like we're not worthy or because we think it's too good to be true, but why do we so fear the very thing that makes
us most happy and satisfies to no end, it really is absurd, and there's a big time joke in it when we finally come to the end of the fake program and
all the #ty training we've been fed by "modern civilization".
It's time to bring forth from the storehouse of treasure, BOTH something very old AND something very new.
I hope to do it in this lifetime and I hope you'll join me.
P.S. Some may get an instant negative bias with the word "God" and the scriptural quotes, so let me put it this way. When we begin to experience God,
relative to all this nonsense and absudity, and recognize how merciful and loving "he" really is (and would have to be), the only real response you
have, aside from maybe gratitude for not being hellbound is - "Oh God you're so funny I can't believe it!", but that the joke goes on and on, is all
the confirmation you need that indeed it's true and that God loves to smile with us when we come to recognize just how foolish we were being all
along. I hope that helps.
