In giving readings I see the way the person's potential is expressed through impulses to do things, desires--sometime secret. Often there is a reluctance to give credence to those promptings, a mistrust of their presence. Yet, it's the way a person becomes actualizes her potential and fulfills her life purpose.
And today I read this in A Seth Book, the Personal Sessions, Book 3, page 337:
"You live through desire, and behind all desire there is love--love of being what you are, and love of being part of the fabric of existence that you know."
This encapsulates the spectrum of being: the desire in the moment connected to the fundamental energy of All That Is: love.
