      If I have a desire to bond with the creator, not for my benefit, but to bring joy and happiness to the creator and the world around me…  The cup can be filled endlessly and the pleasure felt boundlessly.  If your desire is for something great and beautiful like adhesion to God and all of existence the satisfaction is beyond measure when you fulfill this desire.

      By expanding our vessel to include the desires of others and their fulfillment.

      I think the lack of lasting pleasure and fulfillment is the thing which drives people forward through many attempts to achieve it until we realise there is no fulfillment without the creator. Only He provides lasting pleasure.

      Our intentions change so our desires change which results in true pleasure because we become like the creator. Our righteousness/alignment with the creator becomes unending pleasure

      We need to ask the Creator to help us take the first step of spiritual connection by correcting  the intention of receiving to receive to receiving to bestow

      Within our egoistic structure there is no way to to get satisfaction from any pleasure. As soon as we start to feel satisfaction in whatever it is we achieved then the desire for it starts to wane. That’s why we will always be chasing the next desire. Just to get disappointed again.
