Last week we focused on The Law of Least Effort, The Law of Intention and Desire coincides with the former in that once you set your intentions or your desires, you let them go and wait for the universe to do its magic. According to The Law of Intention and Desire, inherent in every intention and desire is the mechanics for its fulfillment. When we introduce an intention in fertile ground of pure potentiality, we put infinite organizing power to work for us.
Your intent is for the future, but your attention is in the present. As long as your attention is in the present, then your intent for the future will manifest, because the future is created in the present. You must accept the present as is. Accept the present and intend the future. The future is something you can always create through detached intention, but you should never struggle against the present. If you have life-centered, present-moment awareness, then the imaginary obstacles—which are more than ninety percent of perceived obstacles—disintegrate and disappear.
Learn to harness the power of intention, and you can create anything you desire. Today, make a list of desires. Then release this list of desires and surrender it to the womb of creation with trust, reminding yourself to practice present-moment awareness in all your actions. Relinquish your attachment to the outcome and trust that when things don’t seem to go your way, there is a reason.
Put the Law of Intention and Desire into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps:
“1. I will make a list of all my desires. I will carry this list with me wherever I go. I will look at this list before I go into my silence and meditation. I will look at it before I go to sleep at night. I will look at it when I wake up in the morning.
2. I will release this list of my desires and surrender it to the womb of creation, trusting that when things don’t seem to go my way, there is a reason, and that the cosmic plan has designs for me much grander than even those I have conceived.
3. I will remind myself to practice present-moment awareness in all my actions. I will refuse to allow obstacles to consume and dissipate the quality of my attention in the present moment. I will accept the present as it is, and manifest the future through my deepest, most cherished intentions and desires.”
