Your Every Intention Leads to Some Result

Your Every Intention Leads to Some Result

We mortals assume that we have to work to make our dreams come true, when in fact most of the work we run around doing is preventing our dreams from coming true. Our desires are random or repetitive or obsessive, all of which are wastes of energy.

The less effort expended, the better. To think in a more orderly, conscious, efficient manner, you first have to eliminate habits of thinking that obstruct the universeís ability to carry out your desires.

Imagine that your mind is a radio transmitter, bombarding the field with messages. If you sit quietly and observe your mind, you will see that it is full of mixed signals. The things we want to accomplish we also have doubts about; the person we want to turn into is also someone we arenít quite sure about.

The mind is similarly full of pointless repetition. It has been estimated that 90 percent of the thoughts anyone thinks on any given day are the same as those of the day before. This is because we are all creatures of habit, worry, and obsession.

Intentions are simply desires, and desires are linked to what you need. Therefore all this activity of the mind that isnít being fulfilled consists of old needs that didnít get fulfilled.

Everyone and everything inside your brain is you. You have turned into all those old, repetitive conflicts, and they will not disappear until you change.

Our human condition - has conditioned us to 'repetitive behavior' - which now beckons us to 're-think' this process now, and awaken to another level of awareness. This is a major message in Jesus's teaching: "the lilies of the field" and many other references,... Trust that the Spirit is carrying you and allow the natural changes to heal you beyond all expectations. This Miracle of living is more magnificent than we imagine, - OR CAN imagine!

The other alternative is to happily accept who you are.

There's nothing as permanent as change - so one automatically changes with every passing day. Yes, and I agree, we are spiritual beings having a human experience...

I'm content within myself but certainly not content with the state of the world with regard to politics, poverty, our environment, so many unconscious fellow humans, violence, lack of justice, etc. In order to preserve my self-respect, and like many other caring people, I speak up about things that need to change!
