The Way Home
   The daffodils began to bloom in rapid succession. Bursts of yellow and white, with orange, trumpet-shaped crowns shouted up and down my garden path. In the midst of them all, a few blue irises reached upward, stately and peaceful on their long stalks. March was changing its garment of grey rain and chilly winds into April's colourful wardrobe. The snails knew this too. They appeared from their winter hibernation, or from whatever subphysical dimension they inhabited, to leave sticky trails along my wooden walkways.
   It was time to "harden" the seedlings, now sporting the required four leaves, in the mild outdoor spring air. I set them on a square wooden area used in the summer to hold our outdoor barbecue grill. As I carried the last egg carton out of the enclosed patio, I saw her - Kyari Hota, bending gracefully over an uptilting blue iris, as much a beautiful flower as the one she was now admiring.
   "Hello, Kyari," I said quietly, trying to avoid disrupting the calm mood of this scene.
   "Good morning, daughter," she returned, straightening and turning to face me. Her almond eyes were like dark ponds in which colourful fish of the inner worlds might swim in eternity.
   "I'm putting out my seedlings to harden them in the outdoor air," I offered, pointing to the egg cartons lined up like regiments of soldiers. "I wonder if they'll survive. I hope so."
   "Do not hope, my daughter," smiled my teacher. "Intend. Then intention will magnetize the desired result toward you, and all the necessary steps along the way will be made clear."
   I thought about this, then tried out the corrected attitude inside myself.
   "I see what you mean," I said shortly. "It feels very different. It feels like a powerful connection between this moment and the future I've imagined - a connection between these seedlings and the mature plants full of flowers!"
   "Yes,"  Kyari replied. "This connection you sense is Spirit itself, which is the binding force connecting all living things. But the connection is activated through intention. Spirit is like the wires strung all over your city to carry electricity to homes and businesses, and Spirit is also the electricity itself. But intention is like the switch at the power point which sends the energy through the wires which connect the city. Without intention, dreams remain only potentials. With intention, they become realities!"
   "Yes, I see!" I agreed. "Hoping for something to happen and creating it through intention is miles apart, isn't it?" 
   "It is," the Adept smiled.
   "But Kyari, is creating through intention always best?" I queried, feeling for something that was vaguely forming in my mind. "What I mean is, can someone project an intention too aggressively?"
   "Very good, daughter," the Adept said approvingly. "You are thinking ahead! The aggressive and the receptive both have their place, as well as their time, as you have seen through our previous discussions and experiences. Furthermore, there is always the issue of ethics - that is, whether your intentions would be ultimately harmful or beneficial to the whole. If, however, your ethics are good, you are free to use the spiritual forces to achieve your goals without concern. The description I will give you may be similar in some ways to the laws of manifestation. Yet the viewpoint I am presenting today is aimed at a higher spiritual level.
   "First, you must begin with an intention toward a specific purpose. This activates the flow of Spirit, vitalizing the connection between you and whatever you desire in life. Since Spirit is intelligent, it will also connect you with all the large and small objects, incidents, people, and experiences which you need to reach your goal. Chances are that you will be able to consciously predict very few of these necessary intermediary steps. Logic and reason will not suffice. So it is here that the passive mode comes in handy. Intuition is the passive or receptive side which is a general openness to information coming straight from the higher awareness, or Soul.
   "Intuition is passive because it involves the relaxing of the will, and an attitude of humility, love and trust in a higher power to guide and care for your welfare. Look, at the most intuitive people you know, and chances are you'll find people who have strong beliefs in God or a higher power, whether this belief is traditional or simply personal to themselves..."
