Intention & Desire
A flower, a rainbow, a tree, a human body, when broken down to their essential components, are energy and information. In fact, the whole Universe, in its essential nature, is the movement of energy and information.
So, what is the difference between you and a tree ?
On the material level, both you and the tree are made up of the same recycled elements. In fact, you and the tree are constantly exchanging carbon and oxygen with each other. The real difference lies in the energy and information. In the scheme of nature, you and I are privileged species. We have a nervous system that is capable of becoming aware of the energy and informational content that gives rise to our physical body. And, because human consciousness is infinitely flexible, we can consciously change the energy and therefore, influence our environment and thus cause things to manifest in it.
Intention is the real power behind desire. Intent alone is very powerful, because intent is desire without attachment to the outcome. Desire alone is weak, because desire in most people is attention with attachment.
Intention combined with detachment leads to life-centered, present-moment awareness. And, when action is performed in present-moment awareness it is most effective.Your intent is for the future, but your intention is in the present. As long as your attention is in the present, then your intent for the future will manifest, because the future is created in the present.
The past, present and future are all properties of consciousness. The past is recollection; the future is anticipation and the present is awareness. Therefore, time is the movement of thought. Both past and future are born in the imagination; only the present, which is awareness, is real and eternal. “IT IS”. It is an eternal field of possibilities experiencing itself as abstract forces, whether they be light, heat, electricity, magnetism or gravity. These forces are neither in the past nor in the future. They just are !
When we are free from the burden of the past, then action in the present becomes the fertile ground for the creation of the future. Intention grounded in this detached freedom of the present, serves as the catalyst for the right mix of matter, energy and space-time events to create whatever it is that you desire.
Live in the PRESENT, because this time is all that you have got for REAL !
