The Flow of Desire

Have you ever sat on a river bank and watched the flow of water as it travels over rocks coursing its way until it empties into the mouth that awaits it?  Though you can't see it, a current created by pressure from its source forces the river's movement.  Its flow.  

A river is naturally flowing water.  Usually freshwater.  Born in that freshwater are salmon.  Though they migrate to the ocean, they return to the freshwater where they were born to reproduce.  Swimming upstream is dangerous and many salmon don't survive it.  Regardless, they have to obey the call.  

I see similarities between this and the human experience.  Built into the fabric of who we are is a homing device.  It's placed there by the Source.  We go about living our lives the same as those around us, then something happens.  Some precipitating event activates that homing device.  Like salmon, we feel that instinctive call to reconnect with where we came from.  Desire is that tug and Purpose is at the other end.  

That's when the fun starts.  Now your life is no longer okay as it is.  There is a call to go against the current.  It creates stress and pressure both inside as well as outside.  It seems like your world it turned upside down!  There is threat and unfamiliarity but you know that you must try.  You don't know what's going to happen, but you must try.  Somewhere deep inside of you, you know that your destiny is tied to it.  The reason you were born.
