A “dream picture of oneself” Needs & Fanciful Desires, Wants & Wishes

0CIPS.png

I’m going to start with the Epilogue because when you are AIMING for anything in LIFE .. it is wise to begin with the end in mind.

“Search for the master plan in the decisions .. that you make” (expectations that you set) – Farooq Omar

There are two ways to travel through life with all your dreams & desires wants & wishes

.. one way is with your heart toward God

He has a Divine “Masterplan” to redeem you .. to restore your soul.  He LOVES you. He has plans for your life “to prosper you & not to harm you” 

“God’s plans for you, and His ways of bringing about His plans,  are infinitely wise.” - Madam Guyon

.. the other way to travel through life is with your heart turned away .. with your back turned to God. 

In which case you are on your own .. "leaning on your own understanding” .. “Left to your own devices”  

 

There is an admonition:

“Be careful what you wish for”

.. You might get it.

.. It may not be for your good.

.. It may not be what you need.

 

“But sometimes things ain't what you think they're gonna be
What you want ain't always what you need

Don't know what you got 'til it's gone and you're out on your own
All you want is what you can't get back
Once you let it go, then you know what you have
Don't hold a candle to what you had
Sometimes what you think you'll find
It ain't quite what real life has in store
So be careful what you wish for” 

Be Careful What You Wish For - Luke Combs

 

In a “dream picture of oneself”        

Do we stop to question: Are my “needs” .. my “desires” .. my “wants” .. my “fanciful” wishes rightly-ordered?

Or

Might they be woven on the loom of others’ expectations or the “god of this age”?

 

“Wants are moderately purposeful however not submitted” – Farooq Omar

What should “wants” be submitted to?                                                 

Again: Where is your heart turned?

That is how your wants will be submitted. 

.. to Almighty God

.. or to the “god of this age” .. or the god of self ..  or others

The "supremacy of perception and consciousness" will be greatly enhanced by the "knowledge" of God and the discovery of His GRACE 🙏

 

Where is your “Compass of Destiny” pointed? Where is your focus? That’s where you will go.

Needs, Wants & Desires

By definition: “DESIRES” & “WANTS” are wishful  or “fanciful” 

Want:

.. a desire for something

.. ought, should, or need to do something

.. have a desire to possess or do something .. wish for

Desire-Desired .. strongly wish for or want something .. set one’s heart on 

Need: 

.. expressing necessity or obligation

.. require (something) because it is essential or very important

 

Are wants & desires a “detachment from the genuine” .. the Real?

Do they deter & distract? 

.. from commitment 

.. from reality

.. from needs

 

What is genuine?       

It is truly what something is said to be; authentic.

“The genuine keeps on applying its impact all through our grown-up lives .. since it is the stone against which every one of our dreams .. at last fall flat” – Farooq Omar

 

REALITY ever wars with needs & desires .. wants & feelings

The world is increasingly governed by FEELINGS & WANTS & DESIRES. 

All are “interwoven” .. yet many are disconnected from REALITY           

 

A profound question 

Do you “recognize the materiality of your reality”?   - Farooq Omar

(Materiality: the quality of being relevant or significant)

 

“I call these unintentional expectations: A RECIPE to Identify Misplaced Priorities – that LIKELY LEAD TO DISASTROUS EFFECTS.” – Farooq Omar 

I can’t think of a better example toIdentify Misplaced Priorities” that “LIKELY LEAD TO DIASTORUS EFFECTS” .. and the “materiality of reality”

Than the debt deficits of every nation on earth = (presently) 281 trillion (per Bloomberg) 

“While the real concerns NEED and the Imaginary concerns REQUEST; the emblematic is about WANT, the way that our dreams consistently fall flat before the REAL.” – Farooq Omar

28 trillion USA – 14 trillion Japan - 7 trillion China – 2 trillion Canada      

Although in one does research - numbers are out of date & all over the board – reported by mad mathematicians or God knows who.

 

There is also a BRILLIANT Marketing application:

“Desires” are boldly, blatantly advertised & sold every moment of everyday

Selling the “nonexistent” .. this is the vibrant world of marketing .. washing over us every moment of everyday 

.. Buy this perfume and you’ll get the man of your dreams

.. Buy this car and you’ll be successful & powerful.

“In the modern world of business. It is useless to be creative, original thinker unless you can sell what you create.

Cleverness doesn’t sell products and services.” – David Ogilvy

Rather it is .. 

“The allure of fake promises and wishful thinking that create an endless supply of unknowing consumers” with ‘misplaced priorities & unintentional expectations that lead to disastrous effects’ – Farooq & Fay 

BEWARE & Be aware.                                                                    

There is psychology and much manipulation in the world of marketing. Study the history .. it is rooted in propaganda.

Concluding thought

No matter which way you chose to travel in life .. the principle of sowing & reaping will apply.

Life is about planting and harvesting. 

Plant good seeds & good things will grow.

Good seeds .. fulfill good needs.

Every living thing holds the promise of GROWTH. This is of God.

Hold close to your heart this thought as you form that “DREAM picture” of yourself. 

“It’s not what you are born into. Rather it is what you have in you to become. You are filled with CAPACITY” – Fay Vietmeier

Multiplied thanks Franci .. 

it seems “risk” is everywhere

.. seen

.. unseen

I appreciate your reading and parting note “one to ponder”🍯

Be careful what you wish for, whether tangible or intangible can be risky. Your first concluding thought brings to mind you reap what you sow. Interesting post, Fay, and one to ponder.

You words overflowed like rivers of honey Farooq .. thank you. Truly your words fill my heart. ❤️

.. a furor of soul and heart-filled benevolent consideration

.. internal musings ;~)

.. liberated from opposition from an open unending space  

.. liberated from any gravity of dread

.. most likely not a human, a lot cleaner than a heavenly angel

I assure you dearest soul-friend..  “I am very "human” 

It is remarkable what God can do with a willing lump of clay .. who on occasion poses as a bee

My closest soul companion with a furor of soul and heart-filled benevolent consideration. The manner in which you have created your internal musings so perfectly and liberated from opposition from an open unending space - liberated from any gravity of dread. The lone thing I can say, Who are you, Fay, most likely not a human, a lot cleaner than a heavenly angel. The more recognition, care, regard, and partiality for you. It doesn't coordinate with the value you merit.💙
