DESIRE

June 9, 2020
Etymology can be very interesting. The etymology of DESIRE shows that this word was exactly meant to give you a way out of what we have described as a strange attractor. DESIRE comes from the latin verb SIDERARE, which means “obeying the stars”. The Romans admired astrology, believing their gods showed their will through the position of the stars, so that a good astrologer could tell exactly what is possible and what is impossible every day.

From the verb SIDERARE comes CONSIDERARE, “to consider”, whose original meaning was “to pay attention to the stars’ will”.

The opposite of CONSIDERARE is DESIDERARE, “to desire”, whose original meaning was “to stop considering the stars’ will”. Nowadays we don’t need to believe in the will of the stars as poetically as the ancients did. What they used to call the stars’ will is, for us, our present situation. Our relatives, our friends and neighbors, TV, colleagues, traditions, memories, fears, superstitions, the economic situation, and many other factors influence us, keep us inside our strange attractor.

That is why you have to stop CONSIDERING and begin to DESIRE.

Talents

Have you ever looked at yourself from ABOVE?

Some say everyone has an Angel. Perhaps. I learned that everyone IS an Angel and that we do our best when we realize what kind of Angel we are. In this Section you’ll find a little handbook of angelic identities.

The Mind's Tools

Are you sure your mind can’t reach the Milky Way?

It all depends on how you use your mind. It’s rather simple after all: you are the specialist about your own mind; nobody knows it better than you do. I’ll show you WHAT you know about it.

Solutions

This is a trying time, isn’t it? But a new one.

New epochs can begin like that: with an ordeal. Some people pass through the ordeal and enter into a brand new future. Others don’t even notice the ordeal and think that it is only a setback!
