Your Will and your Imagination. There is no disputing the existence of your free will. You’re a being with a mind capable of making choices. Indeed, you’re in a continuous state of deliberate choice-making during your life. This isn’t about free will versus predetermined destiny, but look carefully at how you’ve chosen to rely on your ability to will yourself toward whatever you desire. Intention, isn’t about have a strong desire and backing it up with a pit bull kind of determination. Having a strong will and being filled with resolve to accomplish inner goals is asking ego to be the duding force in your life. I will fo this thing. I will never be stupid. I will never give-up. These are admirable traits, but they won’t reconnect you to intention. Your willpower is so much less effective than your imagination, which is your link to the power of intention. Imagination is the movement of the universal mind within you. Your imagination creates the inner picture that allows you to participate in the act of creation. It’s the invisible connecting link to manifesting your own destiny.
