Friday, August 15, 2014: When passionate urges and a surge of desire leads to obsessions and the need to control and possess... How do you respond? Do you respond unthinkingly to these passionate urges or do you respond with courage and good sense? Which should triumph? Sense or sensibilities?

Today there's an urge to appease your wants, desires and physical appetites.. to pamper yourself with the sensual pleasures of life and be self-indulgent... to have what you want no matter what the future cost. So do you throw caution to the wind, go with your sensibilities and have some colorful self-indulgent fun... perhaps spending too much money and gamble with your future security? Or should you be sense-able and hold onto what you have?

These are the questions and the dilemma... and perhaps the secret and lesson of the day is not to go overboard with either tendency. Indulge yourself... have fun but consider the price you might have to pay for a moment of untamed wants and desires. And... If you can't resist the urge to splurge on something you want or desire, make sure it's returnable and don't remove the tags.

This is a sensual and worldly day when imprudence and inflexibility could hinder your good judgment... But... The good news is that your feet are planted firmly on the ground and you're also beginning a period of time that bodes well for rational and reasonable responses. Which should keep you from going off track and derailing your future..

Remember, there is a vast difference between needs, wants and desires, but there is a logical progression between the three. "Needs" are something basic, something absolutely necessary. "A want", on the other hand, is a longing for something you lack.... and "a desire" is the passionate craving to have or possess that which want. Certainly, it's unrealistic to try to live without any wants or desires... these create the passion that fuels your creativity, energizes you, gives you fulfillment, and pushes you to reach your goals. But ... and I hate to put a damper on your fire... meeting your needs must comes first and having everything you want and desire can empty your pockets and created clutter in your life.

Be passionate today... live, love, laugh, be happy and let your light shine... but temper your passionate sensibilities with a healthy dose common sense.

Today's Quote

The things you need in life are those that will help you to fulfill your dominant purpose. Things you may want but not need may lead you aside from that purpose. It is only by making everything serve your main objective that success is attained. ~ Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 - 1952)
