Nature teaches

“Water does not resist. Water flows.
Water always goes where it wants to go. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember, you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” – Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

If you can’t go through….I liked this! Neither resisting nor fighting with a problem can help us solve it. A water-like patience can wear the problem away.

The true power of water is in its flexibility, its softness. We can go through water and we also love its touch. Water nurtures. Water caresses. Water cleans. Water also heals.

Water is not hard, it’s not stubborn. It is persevering. If we try to stop it, it will first try to percolate through. If it can’t, it will change its course and move on. If it can’t, it will corrode the obstructing material. If it can’t, it will break through. Water moves silently or melodiously. It roars only when it has gathered strength to break through.

This is how nature teaches us. Let us unfold some more lessons. Nature is the path to God.

The Truth of Intention

Energy follows the thought.
To quote Wallace D. Wattles:
“Thought is the only power which can produce tangible riches from the Formless Substance. There is no limit to the supply of Formless Stuff, or Original Substance. Original Substance is alive with creative energy, and is constantly producing more forms….”

Thoughts become things with the help of this creative energy.
Intention is the most powerful thought. Hence energy follows intention.
Intention, in common parlance, means motive, a specific purpose in performing an action, or an end or a goal aimed at. Intentional behaviour can also be just thoughtful and deliberate goal-directedness.

But, intention is not just willingness. It is much more. It is a determination. Rather, it is a decision.
Whenever you have an ABSOLUTE INTENTION to do, be or have something, you become the channel for the creative energy. ‘THAT’ something manifests through you.
When do we truly intend?
Under two circumstances: First, when we EARNESTLY DESIRE something; second, when we ‘FEEL’ RESPONSIBLE for something. In these two cases our intention is integral. In other cases, whatever we are willing to do, be or have, we may lack intention. It can be called, at the most, a wish! It is a weak desire.
“When you express an intention with integrity in the Universe, the Universe moves to accommodate you.” – Anonymous.
To put it simply, when our intention is absolute, all the creative energies can be channeled through us. Our body becomes such a conduit which has no blockades at all. Our intention does not only get completely accomplished; but the speed and perfection with which it manifests are incredible.
