We are our intentions.
Our intentions shape our choices of our vision, beliefs, values, habits, and actions.
Our intentions determine our choices that lead to outcomes.
This is nature's law. This is the way nature works. We are all subject to nature's laws - whether we like it or not, whether we know it or are ignorant.
There are two kinds of intentions - conscious and unconscious.
Only conscious intentions can produce the intended outcomes for us. Meaning, only if you make your intention conscious either by saying it out loud, writing it down, or visualizing it in your mind, do you then stand a chance of achieving what you set your heart on.
On the other hand, unconscious intentions also produce outcomes but they are more often than not unintended outcomes.
Unconscious intentions are often the culprit underlying bizarre, unproductive behaviour and poor results.
Conscious intention is:
- A stretching or bending of the mind towards an objective
- A determination to act in a certain way or to do a certain thing
- The object towards which our thoughts are directed.
Conscious intentions are just focused thoughts and everything worthwhile starts as focused thoughts.
Everything is created twice. First in our mind as an intention, and then in reality.
Without that intention, there would be no reality. This is true of both conscious and unconscious intentions.
A building is first created in the mind of the architect before it rises into the air.
An airplane is created in the mind of its designer first before it cruises through the airways.
We too are created twice.
Yes, us - we are our most important creation. We are first created in our minds before others see us in flesh and blood.
Our intentions, conscious and unconscious, made ourselves us.
If you want to be the best that you can be, be conscious of whom you are making yourself to be, in your own mind.
Your intention creates your reality, so it pays to know what your intentions are.
Make sure your intention is based on love - more on that next time.
