Every morning, before I start work I read a chapter of an inspirational book. The book I am reading now is “A Happy Pocket Full of Money” by David Cameron Gikandi. This is a really fantastic book that I love. It helps me so much to understand about wealth and the universe.
Why you Should Never Want, but Desire.
Below is an extract of the book explaining why you should never want, but desire.
“The word WANT is a symbol that represents the state of wanting. It is therefore the state that you should avoid first. The symbol, the word itself, is also to be avoided so as not to invoke the state. Please, DESIRE, but never WANT…”
“Here are a few dictionary definitions of the word WANT: to be without; lack. To be destitute or needy. A defect of character; a fault. To be absent; to be deficient or lacking; to fail; not to be sufficient; to fall or come short; to lack. This is what you communicate to the universe to bring to you when you WANT something. The universe brings you just that—absence and deficiency.”
“None of these negative definitions is included for the word DESIRE. Now here are some dictionary definitions of the word DESIRE: to express a wish for; request. The natural longing that is excited by the enjoyment or the thought of any good and impels to action or effort its continuance or possession; an eager wish to obtain or enjoy.”
Extract from “A Happy Pocket Full of Money” by David Cameron Gikandi.
What these three paragraph say is that these two words are often used as being of the same meaning when they are not. Even the modern dictionaries are not very precise on the differences.
Basically, a want means that you lack something and the state of wanting does not bring you what you want. A desire is something you may have or may not have and it does not represent a state. Tell what you desire and it shall be given to you.

In A Happy Pocket Full of Money, Gikandi explains that true wealth is not about having buckets of cash, but rather understanding the value within. True wealth flows out of developing “wealth consciousness,” that incorporates gratitude, a belief in abundance, and an ability to experience joy in life. He explores how recent discoveries in theoretical physics are relevant for the creation of personal wealth and shows readers how to create abundance by saving, giving, offering charity, and building happy relationships.
A Happy Pocket Full of Money features:
– How to use an internal mantra to build wealth consciousness.
– How to be conscious and deliberate about your thoughts and intentions.
– How to decide, define, and set goals you can believe in.
– How to act on your beliefs and overcome challenges.
– How to incorporate gratitude, giving, and faith to experience abundance and joy in life.
This inspirational book will change how you view and create money, wealth, and happiness in your life.
