intention directs my words and actions.
and actions generate the quality of my experience.
constructive change to happen I need to be conscious and clear about what my
essential intention is.
conscious about what my intention is I have to slow down enough to discern and
be patient enough to sustain essential purpose when the pressure to act out of
old habits is pressing in. To slow down enough to discern I have to practice with dedication.
Each day I
ask the question what do I want in essence? Certainly the names and faces will
all ways be changing so what I want essentially is never answered with a
particular name, or face, or event. It is answered with a desire for a quality
of experience, and discovered through a quality of intention. Aiming at essence,
I answer this question this morning with these words.
Peace of Mind.
Freedom of choice.
I want conscious community to learn and grow
I am in love with loving.
seeking community to realize the essence of human being.
I wish to know another as myself.
I wish to know myself as another.
I wish to realize there are many parts and One Body all at the same time.
I understand I cannot realize these things alone.
I understand I cannot realize these things while defended.
I realize I cannot do this without others to share the practice of and belief
in absolute unified need.
