There is an intention, a deep creative energy, that is the true Essence within all beings. It is the God Seed that brings forth life. Each of us is filled with this power. It causes growth of the Spirit.
Intention is filled with Eros — the primordial mythical god energy that, among other things, manifests as love and passion.
Passion is filled with intense energy.
Intention is compelling and it brings us back to the great desires within us, no matter how many times we fall short, or seem to fail.
Intention carries soul desire, and brings our hearts into life.
What is your great intention in life?
We have major intentions that are comprised of many, many smaller intentions that arise on a daily basis.
I invite you to consider what your intention is for today? As you arise each morning, what is it that you soul desires — even more than that cup of coffee?
If you haven’t been conscious of your intentions, you can begin right now.
What is it your soul would like to do today? Small steps are probably the best way to approach this.
You might write it down, to make it plain to you. Don’t worry whether it seems feasible or not. Let your soul energy work with this great desire.
Then there is the power of attention.
What we pay attention to grows and becomes manifest. Attention is the fertilizer, the nutrients, the rain and the sunshine, that cause the seeds to pop open and thrive.
Are we paying attention to the small as well as the large things in our lives?
For instance, “What am I thinking right now? What is my present attitude?” What emotions are flowing through my heart?
Attention is filled with power.
As I sit back and observe the thoughts and feelings that flow through me, I see many desires that contend with each other, fighting for attention — or avoidance.
But even beyond all these multitudes within me, what is my deep, abiding intention?
Mine is to be a loving presence in this world. Therefore as I observe all the conflicts, desires and worries within me, I do my best to bless each of these obstacles with love.
Love is a harmonizing agent. Love is that single energy in the universe that holds all things together and causes everything to blossom into something more beautiful.
Love is that which erases and dissolves all that is no longer useful. Doesn’t really matter if the egocentric self agrees with what has disappeared. The energy of Love knows.
Love is that which sees us through our dark nights and refines us, bringing more soul energy into manifestation as we intend and attend to our great soul work.
This week I invite you to ask yourself daily:
WHAT IS MY INTENTION TODAY?
As you make clear your daily intention, I suggest the following prayer:
“GOD, PLEASE HELP ME TO PAY ATTENTION TO MY ATTITUDE, AND RETURN OFTEN TO THE PRESENCE OF LOVE THAT FLOWS THROUGH ME.
THANK YOU, GOD”
If it would be helpful you might write this on a card and place it where you can see it throughout the day.
I am blessing God’s great intention within you!
