Desire can be dangerous. I found myself watching the move “Alexander The Great” an awesome movie. While I was watching it I began thinking of all Alexander The Great did in his life, and I started dreaming of all the things I wanted to do and began diving into this world of desire. It was a hard thing because it took me down a path where all I could think about was attaining that which I desired. I spent the next day obsessing over my desires and lost sight of everything I was currently involved in. You see my desires began to consume me very quickly. I went outside and looked up into the sky and cried out “What am I supposed to do?” There are times in our lives when we can let desire get the better of us. When we do, its time to take a step back and begin to realize the things we wish to accomplish are good things, and its good to have desire, but we can’t let those things consume us, change us, transform us into someone else. I have learned that we have to be true to ourselves as we desire to reach out and change the world. There is definitely something within the human soul that drives us to reach out and do something, change something, become something, and to desire to achieve those things is good. It’s when desires begin to consume you that things get dangerous. What are your desires? How are they affecting you? I encourage you to “be” first and when you do that you’ll find yourself accomplishing your desires without sacrificing yourself.
