The power of desire

Desire, when it stems from the heart and spirit, when it is pure and intense, possesses awesome electromagnetic energy. This energy is released into the ether each night, as the mind falls into the sleep state. Each morning it returns to the conscious state reinforced with the cosmic currents. That which has been imaged will surely and certainly be manifested. You can rely, young man, upon this ageless promise as surely as you can rely upon the eternally unbroken promise of sunrise… and of Spring.

~ Swami Sivananda (8 Sept 1887 — 14 July 1963)
(as quoted by Abdul Kalam)

Hi Srini :)

There has always existed a fine and complex balance between the conscious and the unconscious forces within us. It's how we handle these great forces that make us who we are in life.

Namaste, peace and honour to you.

Hi Cyrus!

Yes, what you say is right. There exists a balance between the conscious and the subconscious, and by being aware of this balance, we can live the way we ought to live. :)
