[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] What is the quality of your intent?
If its Spiritual, factual, beautiful, political, something to roll to, let
it be, whatever it is let it be, let it be, let it!
Maybe I've been trying to be what they need of me, Be. When I should've
just been me. Why? Whatever it is let it be, let it be, let it! Jill Scott
I wanted to know more about what an intention is. Mainly because a number
of the teachers I met on the way spoke to me about setting intentions and I
was a little unclear, then I was talking to my cousin, who is really more
like my sister as we grew up together in the same house and she said to
me " You know Kos, my word for 2015 is intention" so I decided to do some
research and came up with this definition from Malika Chopra who is doing
some excellent work on spreading the word adn meaning of intentions, she
" Intents come from your soul - they are who and what we aspire for in our
life. Intentions reflect ones purpose, what gives us meaning or
significance. Intentions come from a place of mindfulness, of knowing what
will give us happiness and peace. An intent is any goal you plan on
accomplishing to achieve that happiness and peace."
Awesome stuff and some key things there that spoke to me:
it comes from your soul - that place of infinite possibility
it reflects one's purpose - so basically I need to be clear on what my
What gives me meaning and significance- do I know, have I spent the time
to connect and know what it is?
It comes from a place of mindfulness and therefore suggest to me that it
is not random.
Happiness and peace - your intent ought to bring you happiness and peace
So, my intentions how I set them are extremely important and setting an
intention paves a path for me to act in a way which promotes happiness and
peace and coming from that place its all good!
Simply start with the phrase "I intend to" and fill in the rest with what
your heart wants most
