(Excerpted from "Secrets to​ the​ _Law of​ Attraction_" and "The Complete Thomas Troward Collection")

The fact that creation exists proves that the​ Universal Mind thinks differently,​ and we​ have only to​ look around to​ see that the​ true ideal is​ the​ exercise of​ creative power. Hence,​ so far from desire being a​ thing to​ be annihilated,​ it​ is​ the​ very root of​ every conceivable mode of​ Life. Without it​ Life could not be. Every form of​ expression implies the​ selection of​ all that goes to​ make up that form,​ and the​ passing-by of​ whatever is​ not required for that purpose; hence a​ desire for that which is​ selected in​ preference to​ what is​ laid aside. And this selective desire is​ none other than the​ universal _Law of​ Attraction_.

Whether this law acts as​ the​ chemical affinity of​ apparently unconscious atoms,​ or​ in​ the​ instinctive,​ if​ unreasoned,​ attractions of​ the​ vegetable and animal worlds,​ it​ is​ still the​ principle of​ selective affinity; and it​ continues to​ be the​ same when it​ passes on​ into the​ higher kingdoms which are ruled by reason and conscious purpose. the​ modes of​ activity in​ each of​ these kingdoms are dictated by the​ nature of​ the​ kingdom; but the​ activity itself always results from the​ preference of​ a​ certain subject for a​ certain object,​ to​ the​ exclusion of​ all others; and all action consists in​ the​ reciprocal movement of​ the​ two towards each other in​ obedience to​ the​ law of​ their affinity.

When this takes place in​ the​ kingdom of​ conscious individuality,​ the​ affinities exhibit themselves as​ mental action; but the​ principle of​ selection prevails without exception throughout the​ universe. in​ the​ conscious mind this attraction towards its affinity becomes desire; the​ desire to​ create some condition of​ things better than that now existing. Our want of​ knowledge may cause us to​ make mistakes as​ to​ what this better thing really is,​ and so in​ seeking to​ carry out our desire we​ may give it​ a​ wrong direction; but the​ fault is​ not in​ the​ desire itself,​ but in​ our mistaken notion of​ what it​ that it​ requires for its satisfaction. Hence unrest and dissatisfaction until its true affinity is​ found; but,​ as​ soon as​ this is​ discovered,​ the​ _Law of​ Attraction_ at​ once asserts itself and produces that better condition,​ the​ dream of​ which first gave direction to​ our thoughts.

Thus it​ is​ eternally true that desire is​ the​ cause of​ all feeling and all action; in​ other words,​ of​ all Life. the​ whole livingness of​ Life consists in​ receiving or​ in​ radiating forth the​ vibrations produced by the​ _Law of​ Attraction_; and in​ the​ kingdom of​ mind these vibrations necessarily become conscious out-reachings of​ the​ mind in​ the​ direction in​ which it​ feels attraction; that is​ to​ say,​ they become desires. Desire is​ therefore the​ mind seeking to​ manifest itself in​ some form which as​ yet exists only in​ its thought. it​ is​ the​ principle of​ creation,​ whether the​ thing created be a​ world or​ a​ wooden spoon; both have their origin in​ the​ desire to​ bring something into existence which does not yet exist. Whatever may be the​ scale on​ which we​ exercise our creative ability,​ the​ motive power must always be desire.

Desire is​ the​ force behind all things; it​ is​ the​ moving principle of​ the​ universe and the​ innermost center of​ all Life. Hence,​ to​ take the​ negation of​ desire for our primal principle is​ to​ endeavor to​ stamp out Life itself; but what we​ have to​ do is​ to​ acquire the​ requisite knowledge by which to​ guide our desires to​ their true objects of​ satisfaction. to​ do this is​ the​ whole end of​ knowledge; and any knowledge applied otherwise is​ only a​ partial knowledge,​ which,​ having failed in​ its purpose,​ is​ nothing but ignorance. Desire is​ thus the​ sum-total of​ the​ livingness of​ Life,​ for it​ is​ that in​ which all movement originates,​ whether on​ the​ physical level or​ the​ spiritual. in​ a​ word,​ desire is​ the​ creative power,​ and must be carefully guarded,​ trained,​ and directed accordingly; but thus to​ seek to​ develop it​ to​ the​ highest perfection is​ the​ very opposite of​ trying to​ kill it​ outright.

And desire has fulfillment for its correlative. the​ desire and its fulfillment are bound together as​ cause and effect; and when we​ realize the​ law of​ their sequence,​ we​ shall be more than ever impressed with the​ supreme importance of​ Desire as​ the​ great center of​ Life.
