What is hope exactly?
There really isn’t anything exact about the thing.
Hope and desire reside in the same country but speak very different dialects.
Hope makes you vulnerable.
Desire means there’s something empty that needs to be filled (in your estimation).
Hope is: ‘I HAVE MADE ROOM FOR THIS (healing, forgiveness, appearance, disappearance..)
And I can not do this thing by myself and need Your help.
Hope is a conversation which includes desire.
Desire is the powerful magnetic of ‘one.’
Me, me and more me.
I want, I need….
As opposed to: “This seems like it would be good. How does that sit with You?”
The capitalized ‘Y’ holding the place for whatever you sense is larger than you; God, All-That-Is, Nature…
I WANT, I NEED has dryness to it.
I HOPE feels fertile and contains mystery and possibility.
I HOPE is looking up.
I WANT is looking straight forward.
I WANT, I NEED supposes we know best for ourselves (as in that yellow! cowboy hat I bought eons ago).
I HOPE reckons that is not always the case.
