#796

If I want something too specific, that wanting is coming from ego. Ego imagines and desires specifics.

This includes wanting awakening or enlightenment. When one has very specific ideas about what that means, like the ability to heal the sick, raise the dead and manifest material objects or circumstances, those ideas of awakening or enlightenment are ego-driven.

There is a general desire for truth, love, beauty and goodness, which is not specific and not selfish. This general desire feels genuine, like a calling of the heart. The specifics can be left to the unfolding of the universe.
