Willing yourself to be happy, successful, wealthy, number one, famous, the top salesperson, or the richest person in your community are ideas born of the ego and its obsessive self absorption. In the name of this willpower, people run roughshod over anyone who gets in their way; cheating, stealing, and deceiving to accomplish their personal intention. Yet these kinds of practices will ultimately lead to disaster. You may achieve the physical goal of your individual intention. However, your imagination, that inner peace where you do all your living, won’t allow you to feel peaceful.
In ancient times, a divine being names Hermes wrote :
That which is manifested
That which has been or shall be, is unmanifested, but not dead;
For soul, the eternal activity of God, animates all things.
These are significant words to ponder as you think about reconnecting to intention and gaining the power to create anything that’s in your imagination.
