At the core of every dream, every goal, and every interaction are two critical elements: intention and focus. Spiritual traditions emphasize the importance of intention as a key to personal awakening and manifesting our visions in the world. Without intention – and the power of focus — our lives lack direction and dynamism. We waffle, flounder, and equivocate; we miss opportunities and wait to be rescued; we generate ideas that go nowhere and wonder why we feel so stuck. As one teacher puts it (speaking of the Law of Attraction), “You don’t attract what you want. You attract what you are.” In this month’s edition of the Seeker’s Forum, we’ll be examining how intention works in our lives and what tools we can use to increase focus, decrease ambivalence, and accelerate personal realization.
