|Level your Life - [Desire 125-150]|
Even more energy is available at this level; Desire motivates vast areas of human activity, including the economy. Advertisers play on our Desire to program us with needs linked to instinctual drives. Desire moves us to expend great effort to achieve goals or obtain rewards. The desire for money, prestige or power runs the lives of many of those who have risen above Fear as their predominant life motif.*
Desire is also the level of addiction, wherein it becomes a craving more importan than life itself. The victim of Desire may actually be unaware of the basis of his motives. Some people become addicted to the hunger for attention and drive others away by their constant demands. The yearning for sexual approval has produced an entire cosmectics and fashion industry.
Desire has to do with accumulation and greed. But Desire is insatiable because it´s an ongoing energy field, so that satisfaction of one itch is merely replaced by unsatisfied craving for something else. For instance, multimillionaires tend to remain obsessed with acquiring more and more money.
Desire is obviously a much higher state than Apathy or Grief, for in order to "get", you have to first have the energy to "want." TV has had a major influence on many oppressed people, inculcating wants and energizing their longings to the degree that they move out of Apathy and begin to seek a better life.
Want can start us on the road to achievement.
Desire can, therefore, become a springboard to yet higher levels of awareness.
