“In the universe there is an immeasurable,— Carlos Castaneda
indescribable force which shamans call
intent and absolutely everything
that exists in the entire cosmos
is attached to intent by a connecting link”
“Every journey begins with the first step— Bryant McGill
of articulating the intention,
and then becoming the intention.”
“Energy is directed— Akiroq Brost
by intention into action.
If the action is not happening,
if you’re finding excuses to not do
whatever you set out to do,
revisit your intention.
Perhaps you were not being
honest with yourself.
Where is your energy flowing instead?
That is where your intention sits.”
Today’s MotD reminds us that the key to making things happen is our intent. Once an intent is established, our will gives us the drive and the wherewithal to make it happen. For instance, if our intent is to walk 2 miles a day, and we stay true to that intent, we will walk 2 miles a day. If one day we waver and decide to stay in bed, then the intent has changed to “staying in bed.”
Our challenge is to be aware at the first signs of wavering to remember our initial intent, “to walk 2 miles a day.” Let go of the idea of it being about will power. Instead is about intent. If we’re clear on our intent, we will be clear in our will.
