desire

A Quote by Walter Russell on electricity, tension, mind, think, know, interaction, desire, and matter

Electricity is the strain or tension set up by the two opposing desires
of universal Mind thinking: the desire for balanced action and the
desire for rest.

This electric universe is a complexity of strains caused by the
interaction of these two opposing, interchanging electric desires.

All matter is electric. All matter is conditioned into greater or
lesser strains according to the intensity of desire which is the cause
of all electric strain to which it is subjected.

The farther removed from rest, the greater the strain or tension. That
which we call high electric potential is merely great strain to
maintain a condition which is far from the condition of rest.

The familiar return ball with which a child plays is a good example of
electric strain. When the ball is thrown from the hand, the elastic
gradually tightens to increase the tension of resistance to strain
generated in the elastic. The strain continues to intensify until the
ball comes to rest. When the ball returns, the strain gradually lessens
until the ball again comes to rest in the child’s hand. When that
happens, the strain and tension have been voided. Tension has not
BECOME rest; it has ceased to be.

This whole electric universe is a complex maze of similar tensions.
Every particle of matter in the universe is separated from its
condition of oneness, just as the return ball is separated from the
hand, and each is connected with the other one by an electric thread of
light which measures the tension of that separateness.

A Quote by George Bernard Shaw on imagination, creation, and desire

"Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last you create what you will."

A Quote by Walter Russell on life, death, prayer, praying, god, patience, will, and desire

When you pray to God resignedly, as though patiently accepting the punishment of grief at the death of a loved one, and you say: "Thy will be done O Lord. The Lord giveth, and he taketh away", you have not yet known the God of love, for God giveth only. God never takes that which has not been given. What God gives to you you regive to Him for His regiving.
You rejoice when God gives birth to life, yet you deeply grieve when you give rebirth to new life -- for that is what death is.

A Quote by Lena Lees on always state, kuan yin, desire, ego, eternity, and knowledge and bliss

"In your life, you forget your "Always State" or "Always Form". You forget everything. However, you are already always that! There is only eternity, knowledge and bliss. But you're still terrified it might not be true. That is ego at work. Ego keeps one from being free. We want to taste all these experiences. And the ego makes it possible. Don't curse the ego. So many scriptures curse the ego self. Instead, look at your life as about choices, experiences and desires--that you are already liberated. Don't be afraid of desire. That is why you're here, to taste, live."

A Quote by David Lynch on desire, ideas, fish, and patience

Desire for an idea is like bait. When you're fishing, you have to have patience. You bait your hook, and then you wait. The desire is the bait that pulls those fish in--those ideas.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on desire, advaita, others, and mindfulness

Use your mind. Remember. Observe.
You are not different from others.
Most of their experiences are valid for you too.
Think clearly and deeply,
go into the structure of your desires
and their ramifications.
They are a most important part of your mental
and emotional make-up
and powerfully affect your actions.
Remember, you cannot abandon what you do not know.
To go beyond yourself, you must know yourself.

Nisargadatta Maharaj

A Quote by Nagarjuna on desire, attachment, buddhism, and acceptance

There is pleasure when a sore is scratched,
But to be without sores is more pleasurable still.
Just so, there are pleasures in worldly desires,
But to be without desires is more pleasurable still.

Nagarjuna (c.100 - 200 AD)

When you demand nothing of the world, nor of God, when you want nothing, seek nothing, expect nothing, then the Supreme State will come to you uninvited and unexpected
