Chapter 4 - Desire - The First Law of Gain
"Ah, Love! Could Thou and I with Fate conspire
To grasp this sorry Scheme of Things entire,
Would we not shatter it to bits---and then
Re-mold it nearer to the Heart's Desire!"
---The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.
If you had a fairy wishing ring, what one thing would you wish for? Wealth? Honor? Fame? Love? What one thing do you desire above everything else in life?
Whatever it is, you can have it. Whatever you desire, wholeheartedly, with singleness of purpose---you can have. But the first and all-important essential is to know what this one thing is. Before you can win your heart's desire, you've got to get clearly fixed in your mind's eye what it is that you want.
