Simple and Meaningful Life...Intention
Intentions...Merriam-Webster defines intention as "the thing that you plan to do or achieve: aim or purpose." For the last decade or so, I've been on a very profound spiritual journey of really cultivating some fantastic ideas about ourselves, our lives, and our purpose. Writing these tidbits are just a small glimpse of the journey I am on. It is nice to collect my thoughts and release them into the Universe via blog posts. Ha! That sounds corny, no?
So what does creating intention really do for us? I think it helps us create a clear purpose for our lives, something to stand for. Intentions help us to develop new opportunity for our lives, it helps us to simplify situations and to cultivate positive habits, to accomplish goals, and to build strong foundations and relationships. Intention helps us to construct the life we want to live! Intentions are easy to make...as simple as a thought. And often times, they are subconscious. Therefore, it is really important what you are really telling yourself, inside. How do you really feel about yourself? Life is made up of choices and every single moment of every single day is another opportunity to cultivate great intention for your life!
Creating purpose for my life is so important to me. Without purpose I'd feel lost and honestly have no reason to live. I know that sounds really dramatic, but it is the truth. I need purpose, I need passion, I need to feel like the path I am walking is the right path for me. I think that spirituality plays a huge role in feeling like you have a purpose on planet Earth. Whether you believe in God or Universal Energies, or both, spirituality gives us a reason, a clear purpose to keep moving forward. Without it, there would be no meaning to life. No matter what you know, if you believe it...who's to tell you that it is not the truth.
I invite you to start creating clear intentions for you life, start being fully present and aware. You could write down your intentions in a journal, you could just state the intention and release it to the God and Universe, or you could repeat your intentions as affirmations. In the past, I've shared some of the ways I cultivate intentional living.
What do you think about intentions? Do you think they help shape our reality?
