“Desire raises your consciousness. Apathy lowers it.
When you get clear about what you want, such as by setting a goal, you raise your consciousness. Clarity focuses your mind and gives you the power to think and act intelligently. You can feel this effect whenever you think about something you definitely want.
On the other hand, when your desire is unclear, your consciousness is muddled. Your thoughts lack focus and direction, and you merely spin your wheels.
Strive to become more clear about what you truly desire most, and your consciousness will expand.” ~Steve Pavlina
