You are what your deep driving desire is.
As your desire is, so is your will.
As your will, so is your deed.
As you deed is, so is your destiny.
Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV.4.5
We need our Desires -- they inspire us to Change. From the stable atmosphere of Chakra One, Desire urges us to Move.
According to Anodea Judith, "It is the essential thrusting forward that leads us to action." It is the seed of passion and enthusiasm essential for developing energy and power (preparing us for Chakra Three).
Desire may lead to frustration, we may wail and vent, but the frustration can be tied to important lessons for our growth. And if we can come to understand the deeper desires, we learn something of our Soul. Only then can we have the clarity to bring action to our longings.
