The Power of INTENTION

One of my favorite books of all time is "The Seat of the Soul" by Gary Zukav. Truly, my life has been changed forever after reading this book. One of the most wonderful sections of the book has to deal with one's INTENTIONS. Allow me to share my interpretation of this concept.

Zukav states that we are not static systems. We are dynamic beings who can change the way that energy flows through us by changing our consciousness. We can do this, for example, when we challenge a negative pattern, such as anger, and consciously choose to replace it with compassion, or when one challenges impatience and consciously chooses to understand and appreciate the needs of others. This creates different forms of thought, feeling and action. It changes our experience. Every experience, and every change in one's experience, reflects INTENTION. An intention is not only a desire. It is the use of your will. How things change in our lives depends upon the INTENTION that one sets into motion.

If you are not aware of all your intentions, you will be torn because both dynamics will be set in motion and oppose each other. If you are not aware of all your intentions, the strongest one will always win. You may have a conscious desire to improve your relationship, for example, and simultaneously, an unconscious intention to end it. If conflicting intentions are not balanced, and if a person is not willing or able to acknowledge that an aspect of themself stands opposed to their conscious intention, severe stress and emotional pain will result.

One's INTENTIONS need to be so focused that every single action initiates from and is consistant with this pure intention. This is how goals are achieved.

INTENTIONS set into motion processes that affect every aspect of our lives.

Sorry to get so heavy today.
