Thursday's Principle

Thursday, November 08, 2007

The Fourth Principle: Intent weaves the tapestry of the universe.

Sutra: San Kalpa (sahn KAL-pah)

Meaning: My intentions have infinite organizing power.

Our intentions are a manifestation of the total universe because we are part of the universe. And our intentions hold within them the mechanics of their fulfillment. All we really need is clarity of intent. Then if we can get the ego out of the way, the intentions fulfill themselves.

Our intentions attract the elements and forces, the events, the situations, the circumstances, and the relationships necessary to fulfill the intended outcome. We don't need to become involved in the details - in fact, trying too hard may backfire. Let the nonlocal intelligence synchronize the actions of the universe to fulfill your intentions for you.

Intention is a force in nature, like gravity, but more powerful. No one has to concentrate on gravity to make it work. No one can say, "I don't believe in gravity," because it is a force at work in the world whether we understand it or not. Intention works the same way.

Intention is not simply a whim. It requires attention, and it also requires detachment. Once you have created the intention mindfully, you must be able to detach from the outcome, and let the universe handle the details of fulfillment. If you don't, ego gets involved and clouds the process. You'll feel frustrated if your intention isn't realized soon enough. Your sense of self-importance may be threatened, or perhaps you'll start feeling sorry for yourself. Intent in nature orchestrates its own fulfillment. The only thing that could interfere is domination by your own ego needs and totally selfish concerns.

Of course, the best way to have all your intentions realized is to align your intentions with the cosmic intent, to create harmony between what you intend and what the universe intends for you. The best way to create that harmony is by nurturing an attitude of simple gratitude. Give thanks for everything in your life, and abandon your grievances.

I have been thinking and pondering the idea of setting an "intention" that is what I really want versus what my internal parent says is achievable. I have chosen to go for what I really want since there is no heirarchy of difficulty in miracles or manifestations for the universe to create for me. I have also been trying to be very careful with "I am" type statements. I am thankful for the perfect manifestations of my intentions for myself and others.

What I have been thinking and pondering is the realization that I have had that whenever I set an intention and it starts to come true - that I get all panicky and start backpeddling - due to a feeling of guilt.. that I have somehow manifested something I didn't "deserve" or that I will be "found out" and exposed as the "fraud" that I am ... etc

And in view of what Daniel said about "I AM" statements... I AM that I am... no fraud here. I think I'm about as real as it gets.

I wonder how much of this has to do with my parents giving me pretty much whatever I asked for because they felt guilty about sending me away to boarding school when I was 5... and me feeling undeserving of those gifts because clearly if I was deserving of all that love - I would be at home instead of away of school....

I don't know. It's all very interesting. I think this is the most intensive project yet.
