I was once asked this question by a friend: "If you could give up everything you have for everything you want, would you?" The funny thing is I heard most jump at that question saying YES absolutely! But when I was asked this I pondered it before answering, my answer was this. "No because everything I have is everything I want, otherwise I wouldn't have it."
I deeply appreciate everything I have, I very much am thankful to God for giving me so much and so much God gives me. I came up with this experiment for awakening I posted in my God Consciousness Experiment yahoo group a while back. Consider the old stories of The Gods and how they favored the heroes we read of in myths. Now think of this to yourself, "God loves me, God favors me, God always makes me happy and does things for me because I am his son/daughter that he loves so much!" If we build this thought in our minds we come to expect miracles of abundance, providence, expansion, care, health and healing, we expect what God has been waiting to give us but we most of the time refuse to see that God really loves us a lot and wants us to know that.

I have a fantastic life, I have everything I want for myself.I do find however that I want things for my friends and family.If I won the lottery it wouldn't change my life at all but it would definately change theirs.

Good answer by Wade. It made me think, would i give up what i have for what i desire?
Got to say i wouldnt. Ive fulfilled a lot of my desires and ambitions,although they havnt been by any means monumental or world changing ones.
Theres a few little things( well,one fairly big thing ) im still waiting for and have no doubt there winging their merry way to me as i type.
I have a great life partner and a great God.
Ive been blessed with no children which was always the way i wanted it.
Musnt grumble really.
