Fulfill Your Intentions

Fulfill Your Intentions

When you learn to quiet the mind and purify all of its long-held conflicts, the simple reality of how the universe works – the what is – will unfold.

Take a little time every day to notice the contents of your mind. This act of noticing, although very simple, is one of the most powerful steps to bringing about change. What you don’t see you cannot change.

Your ego may not like admitting that you are filled with denial, conflict, mixed intentions, shame, guilt, and all the other confusions that darken the mind and prevent it from seeing the reality of what is. In fact, the ego prides itself on its ability to hide these things from you, on the pretext that you will suffer pain if you look into your mistakes, faults, and sins.

To fulfill your intentions, the steps are completely natural, but they have to be learned. Get the ego, with all its expectations and anticipations, to step aside. Instead of feeling you have to control the outcome of your intention, be assured that the field will do the work for you. Release your intention into the field of the timeless; the more expanded your awareness, the clearer will be the signal you are sending.

Be easy and natural with the whole process. When all these steps come together, your intention will enter the field of awareness, which acts like a matrix to connect your individual thought with all that is. The effortless flow toward an outcome will not be impeded or obstructed by anxieties and attachments of the fearful ego.

In truth, none of the mind’s darkness is sin. God does not judge, only the mind does. Having all your heartfelt wishes come true is what God wants for each person; it is our natural state as creators of our own reality.
