I Intend It...Therefore It Is

Ah, the power of intention. Not as in, "I meant to do that, but I forgot." But as in, "I want to see such-and-such in my world, so dammit, I'm going to make it happen." Intention is a great creative force: it's the power of desire captured in the physical. It's hands-on wishful thinking.

Intention can lead to great things in life. Without desire, how will we get anywhere? Only a banal existence can come from rote learning, habitual doing, and mindless following. To really live requires desires--and the intention to create that which one desires. Once you've tasted desire and have taken the next step to manifest in your life the result of that desire, you never want to go back. This is the lesson we have to teach children--keep dreaming, desiring, intending and manifesting. This (and not following or being passive) is the true path to an enriching life.

As Helen Keller said, "One can never consent to creep when one feels the impulse to soar." And the power of intention can be the rocket fuel that gets desire off the ground. Manifest what you desire in life and settle for nothing less!

Toward fulfillment,
