Neither is wealth or posses- sions. They become an obstacle in the spiritual life when we make them a matter of life and death. They become a substitute for God that we cling to for happiness. Watch yourself and what you desire. Observe the things that attract you and repulse you. What makes you angry or lose your composure? What stresses you out? Desires are like a moth that is attracted to light. If it is a light bulb, the moth is OK. If we are attracted to the light of Christ, we are OK. But what happens if the moth is going after the flame of a candle? Even- tually, the moth gets burned. The same is true with us. When we are fooled by the flame of desire, we eventually get burned. Desire brings more desire. We are always wanting more. We think that when we obtain the object of our desire we will be happy. Alas, this happiness is short lived and we are off to another object, another desire to f~ed. Desires perpetuate addictive, unsatisfying behaviors. Whether it is a better relationship, better sex, more money, better jobs, or bigger houses and cars, our desires can consume our lives and leave us unful- filled, unhappy. When we carefully and bravely examine ourselves and our lives, we can discover our desires and drop them. We must be free from desires to follow Jesus, We can t follow Jesus if we are a slave to our desires. We must surrender all to Christ, even the desire to be holy or good, for we can't be holy or good without Him. Desires trap us in doing our own will and become a block to doing i: God's will. They become,a s~iritual battle ground. As the early Chris- tian Hesychios describes: Watchfulness is a continual fixing andhalting of thought at the entrance to the heart... If we are conscientious in this, we can gain much experience of spiritual warfare." The discipline of watchfulness is still taught and taken seriously in il the Orthodox Church. First we must see and be aware. Next we exam- ine our words, thoughts, actions, and especially our desires, as they come to the heart, the center of our being. We must reject those things that are not good for us and allow entrance only to those things that are good and Godly. i One finds the discipline Of watchfulness and the dangers of desires in many religions. Here is a Buddhist story from The Song of the Bird: !i No Zen student would preSume to teach others until he had lived with his master for at least ten years. Tenno, having completed his ten years, acquired the rank of teacher. One day, he decided to visit the master Nan- in. It was a rainy day, So Tenn0 wore his wooden clogs and an umbrella. When he arrived, Nanin greeted him. "YOu have left your wooden clogs and umbrella on the porch. ,Did you place your umbrella on the right side of your clogs or the left? Tenno was embarrassed, He did not know. He realized that he lacked awareness. So, he becameNan-in s student and labored for another ten~ years to acquire the discipline of awareness. Here is another story: A woman at a bank asked the cashier to cash a ZION-EIDSKOG-SILOAH check for her. Citing company policy, the cashier asked for her identifi- LUTHERAN cation.
