'Intention' Chapter

Intention

We all have genuine intention. Intention is the way of your spirit. It’s the spiritual life path in its essence. You may express that in any of an infinite variety of ways, but it’s still the same thing. It is like people have two drivers, the mind and the spirit. But ultimately, it’s the spirit that has the final say, because it had the first say. It will have the say about what comes after this life as well.

We have a will to live, a will to wake, a will to love. But our true intentions go beyond just our biological needs. We have a will to see things in the world. A will to grow more in harmony with the world and the people we love. We have a will to peace.

“It is not good enough for things to be planned – they still have to be done; for the intention to become a reality, energy has to be launched into operation.” Walt Kelly (American Cartoonist notable for his comic strip Pogo. 1913-1973)

“Concentrated attention is the collection of units of power on a chosen point of intention.” James Arthur Ray
