Self Will / God's Will

Could it be that at bottom, human will is the same as God's? I don't mean that God wants me to do everything that catches my fancy. But what if my everyday wants are proxies for what I really want? Maybe I don't believe that I can achieve what I really want -- or maybe I'm not even clear on what that is. Suppose that's why, whenever we do get what we "want," the satisfaction is fleeting? Perhaps our heart's desire lies at the very heart of our desire. What if we looked there? And patiently listened?
