An interesting experiment would be to maintain a desire in the conscious forefront for an entire day. Even to have a mantra of sorts to repeat vocally when possible, internally when necessary. Start with a simple desire. To talk to someone with whom you hadn’t in a while, perhaps. To hear a beloved song from the past. To get a cookie or something, I don’t know. The kicker is, don’t make any concerted effort to realize this innocuous pursuit. If you manage to maintain an intense focus for the duration of the day, see if your quarry doesn’t get thrown at you with escalating vehemence. The true lesson however; take note of the manner in which things unfold. Learn to choose the preferred method of realization. Follow the opportunity that is just right.
