In every job that must be done there is an element of fun. – Mary Poppins (album)

There is generally a mental aversion to the word must. We tend to resist what we know we must do. Everything in life has a process. We have to be on a journey before we reach the destination.

The destination is nothing but a picture of future painted by our imagination. We shouldn’t treat the moments which are taking us ahead as hurdles to be crossed. Each moment deserves our love, attention and respect. Likewise, each small step towards our destination should be enjoyed.

We need to carry the sweetness and hues each moment brings for us to complete our painting. Just by an intention to drop the resistance and an intention to discover fun in each step the painting will become colourful…the arriving will become meaningful.

This day on let us affirm: *This moment is filled with joy. I choose to experience the sweetness of today. – Louise Hay* God will join in the fun.

The Object of Aspiration

If the aspirant takes one step towards the truth and god, the totality takes ten steps to meet him. – Vimala Thakar.

Aspiring always unfolds the path to reach the aspired. What really determines the quality of our journey, however, is the object of aspiration.

All other accumulations and accomplishments will remain behind when our Soul decides to change form. Only the truth travels with the Soul.

A simple desire and an honest intention are sufficient for moving in the direction of God or truth. The Totality that is Divine awaits for our intention. The moment we release an intention, we experience an accelerated pace of growth.

To quote Osho: Whether or not you reach the truth, but the quest and path make life richer and fuller.

Character and Self Esteem

Your reputation is in the hands of others. That’s what reputation is. You can’t control that. The only thing you can control is your character.- Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.

Reputation nurtures pride. Whereas, building, maintaining and refining our character nurtures our self esteem. Self esteem is true strength. We can build self esteem by being watchful about our thoughts, speech and action. When there is consistency between all the three there is authenticity. We should refrain from speaking what we do not intend to do. Speech devoid of intent is a sure way to diminish self esteem. When we intend something, say something else and do something entirely different we create a chaos in our own minds.

Maintaining and refining of character is done by allowing our conscience to rule us. Our reputation should not drive us. Let reputation come as an obvious outcome of a life lived with inner strength. Have a building weekend. God literally serves us when we are authentic.

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.
