The Power of Intention
Today when I peeled away
yesterday from the calendar and tossed the past away, something
was revealed in the moment. This is what it said:
EVERYTHING IS TRUE JUST
AS IT IS:
WHY DISLIKE IT?
WHY HATE IT?
When I went in to meditate
this Zen saying began to percolate. All of a sudden I began to feel
the sun on my back streaming through the window behind me. There
was a sense of well-being and peace that came over me. Then I began
to think about all the rain and clouds lately. A brief thought came
about how tired I was of the rain and how much more I enjoyed the
sun. Then I thought without this contrast would I or could I appreciate
the sun as much? The rain brings many gifts. Why couldn't I appreciate
it as much?
What about my life? Would
I appreciate the times that are good as much without going through
the challenging times? Would I take things for granted? Do I take
things for granted? I could only be honest and answer yes to
all these questions. Then I remembered the calendar.
In this moment my
intention is to accept everything as true. You can create a new
life for yourself through your intention. Become aware of what your
intention is and use it to create the life you want now.
