The Difference Between Yearnings and Cravings, Mastermind Moments
We All Have Things We Want
But do these things come from our ego self, and can therefore be nothing but impermanent, or from a deeper part that wants to expand and express more of it’s beingness, thereby lasting forever?
That was a question that arose, believe it or not, in response to some deep questioning by one of the participants in a business mastermind?
What came of the conversation, shared among the members, was the idea of the difference between “yearnings” and “cravings”.
Yearning vs. Cravings
People came to agree that cravings were something we hoped to satisfy with some consuming or acquiring. But ultimately, cravings can only be satisfied temporarily.
Yearnings, on the other hand, were thought to come from a deeper, more permanent place inside us. They are an invitation to a call to action. Explored, answered and acted upon, yearnings can yield actual changes to our being that can last…forever.
Take the yearning to become a musician, or an artist. Once acted upon, and a new skill set is practiced, the satisfaction of expressing music or painting can not be taken from us.
Or consider the yearning to enjoy the business that we began to be independent, practice a unique talent, or just to experience challenge. This yearning can actually be calling us to be more capable, able, and to provide a greater service that is needed in the world. Again, once earned, these will go on.
