Releasing Desire Using the Sedona Method - Lester Levenson Student Writes...

Jul 12, 2008
I remember that I had a question about wanting change. I somehow didn't see how this tied in with wanting control at the time. So what did I do? I let go of figuring it out. One day, on an early morning, I was walking across a train station when the answer popped into my mind. It was a very clear and straightforward answer: "Wanting change is a form of wanting control."

This made sense immediately, and a shift took place inside of me. From that moment on, I was able to catch wanting change in my awareness easily and let it go.

Another big insight I had on wanting came to my awareness when I was taking a look at all the wants: wanting approval, control, security, separation and oneness. It dawned on me that these were all just forms of wanting! That wasn't an intellectual understanding, but an understanding that took place on a core being level.

Lester understood this as well and talked about it in his recordings:

"The way to infinite joy is through the elimination of desire."
"Drop one thing and you're free; drop desire."

How can you practically apply this wisdom in your releasing journey? See that all of these wants that we have, are all rooted in wanting. Wanting this, not wanting that, not wanting to experience that (resistance)...they all come from wanting, desire. It is the root of all the wants; and if you knock out the root of all the wants, there are no wants left. No more wanting approval, control, security, separation and oneness!

Once you see that, you can release directly on desire itself; because desire is nothing else but the experience of lack.
Imagine having no more lack in your life. How much more freedom would you have realized by then?

So if you are ready to go deeper into your releasing journey, release on desire directly. It is possible to bring up the root of all of your underlying wants immediately, and that is to address desire (or wanting; they're both the same thing) directly and to drop it.

In short: Could you let go of all wanting/desire? Would you? When?

Or when you are working on your issue (with a Sedona Method process), ask yourself: "Could I completely let go of all the underlying wants of this issue? Would I? When?" instead of using the normal wanting approval, control or security questions. It's very powerful, and I highly recommend it.

I know that sounds very basic and simple, but it is very powerful. Since desire is the only thing that is holding us back from going free, it makes sense to release on it directly.

"Time used in releasing meditation and selfless service is the most useful time. It leads to joy infinite" - Lester Levenson, from "The Ultimate Truth"

Keep it simple; release desire and be free. That is what Lester did, and that is what we all can do.
