Episode16- Intention: A Gift Or A Curse?

As 2015 kicks off the hot topic is how to set and keep your intentions for the year. Human beings love to imagine who they think they want to be, making every attempt to think our self up!

The Curse: In an effort to experience ourselves differently, we make plans, set goals, and imagine detailed scenarios about what we would say or do or how we would act.

Even with all this effort, most of these attempts at enforcing our ideas feel difficult, strenuous and effortful.

The Gift: Then there are the times when ideas arise, a thought or an inspiration, and we follow it to completion. It may take a year or a lifetime but we know what we are doing and we head in that direction – no matter what lands in our path. We may experience doubt, fear or anxiety but we keep going.

There is a difference between these two approaches to life. But it is not in the words or the description of the experience, it is in the feeling.
