The Personality of Desire

Your personality is your unique way of being in the world.  What I didn't know was the Higher Purpose for it.  

I just thought my personality was my personality.  It wasn't until I was faced with what I perceived as a threat that this higher thought was introduced.  I was contemplating the worst.  My personality was serving my intimidation.  Playing out in my head was all the ways things could play out, I planned my defense.  I started to notice something.  The more I anticipated my response, the worst I felt.  I didn't feel stronger.  I felt weaker.   

That's when Deepak Chopra and Oprah's words gave counsel.  "Your personality is suppose to serve your true self," they said.  My humor, my attention to detail, my passionate way of communicating, my inquisitiveness, my way of figuring things out, all that is suppose to serve my true self.  I had to admit that when I experienced something unsavory, that's my last thought.  

"You gotta stop being so analytical!"  Has someone ever told you that?  What I know now is the problem is not an analytic way of approaching things.  In bookkeeping, analysis is key.  The problem is where it is being focused.  Is it promoting peace or fueling contention.  

Exit Ego and enter Higher Consciousness.  

The role of my personality is to empower my True Self.  It is suppose to showcase who I am to the world with all the brilliance of my uniqueness.  That should be my focus.  So much of time is wasted on who is right, who is wrong, who has the upper hand in the situation, how to protect what you have.  Though valiant in its defense of me, Ego is overly paranoid.  If I focus on staying true to the seat of my confidence, however, things will unfold as they are suppose to. Such is the personality of my desire.
