I can't express how much I am in love with the meditation classes I am taking via iTunes. Somehow they really turn on a lightbulb spiritually for me, and I'm really able to ingest the things that they are saying.

Today's meditation was called "Constructing Heaven". The lady spoke, in her lovely Australian accent, about how God constructed us in such a way that our truly important meaningful aspirations, like love and joy and peace, are free, and exist within us. On the other hand, our non-important, material desires are difficult to achieve. This goes along with an earlier lesson that spoke about discerning between desire and aspiration. Desire is that feeling we have when we want something. That feeling, however, is never satisfied, and is immediately transferred to something else as soon as we get whatever we wanted. Alternatively, aspirations are those personal and spiritual goals that make us truly happy.

Anyway, I know that was a little boring, but I can't help writing about it.
