Why is it so easy for someone to see what that person wants to see? Or, so difficult to see what that person does not want to see?
The simple answer is the power of desire!
Like the old adage says “There is no worse blind or deaf than he/she that does not want to see or hear.”
You see, the power of desire resides more in our ability to open or close our mind and heart than on anything else, even reality itself. That’s why subjective reality is more powerful than objective reality.
The power of desire is positively correlated with faith and faith is positively correlated with miracles. And I should know, i was declared dead before I was even born. Yes, I was in my mother’s womb when she was declared dead, not by one, but by three doctors!
So, how is it that I’ve been able to write this article?
Thanks to my father’s powerful desire to bring my mom back to life when he was told she is dead. My mom had already given birth to four of my siblings and my father could not accept the fact that they would face a life without their mother. Thus, he put his power of desire to work and resurrected my mom (you can read exactly how he felt and what he did by reading his verse The Miracle which he wrote shortly afterwards*).
Throughout the history of humanity, there are countless real-life examples of the power of desire in action, e.g., the resurrection of Lazarus, multiplication of bread and fish, etc..
The million-dollar question is: How to develop one’s desire to the point of transforming it into reality, i.e., turning it into a miracle?
The key first step resides in the clarity of our vision, in other words, how clearly do we see in our mind and heart what we want to come true?
Then, based on how clearly we see our vision, the intensity of the desire will manifest itself. If our vision is crystal clear, our desire should be the strongest possible feeling we have ever experienced.
Hence, the clarity of our vision reveals how much we really want this vision to become a reality. In other words, the intensity of our desire is directly proportional to the clarity of our vision.
Finally, the purity of our intention, namely, why do we want this vision? Is it for a purely selfish purpose or is it altruistic? And what would be the consequences of our desire?
The clarity of vision, the intensity of desire and the purity of intention are the critical link for a miracle to happen.
The clarity of vision, the intensity of desire, and the purity of intention are intimately correlated with faith. Faith is the ability or capacity to believe in something of which we have no proof or support whatsoever.
Just as lightning occurs when the negative charges (electrons) in the bottom of a cloud are attracted to the positive charges (protons) on the ground, the intensity and purity of our desire are the positive charges on the ground reaching towards the sky through faith.
The greater the clarity of vision, the stronger the intensity of the desire, the higher the purity of the intention, the stronger the faith and the higher the probability of the lightning of a miracle to occur!
This brings us back to the million-dollar question, how to develop one’s clarity of vision, the power of desire, and one’s faith to the point of transforming it into reality?
We know that faith, like any muscle, can only be further developed by exercising it on a continuous basis, especially when going through hardship or situations that require faith, i.e., situations beyond the natural.
To some people (e.g., gifted/pure-hearted) it comes naturally. To most of us, through hardship and perseverance, but above all, through the clarity of our vision, the intensity of our desire, and the purity of the intention of our higher purpose in life.
Everything has a higher purpose within our dimension of time/space. Although one may argue that our destiny has been written, based on the clarity of our vision, the intensity of our desire and the purity of our intention, one may also argue that we can be the co-creators of our destiny through faith!
