It doesn’t matter how many supplements you take, how early you get up to go to the gym, how vigilant you are to avoid white flour and sugar if you don’t practice setting your intention and cultivate gratitude each day before and after arising. I don’t need to elaborate here on this, as in 1996 I wrote what’s to follow. It’s a true story, only the name has been changed. My aunt worked for the company referred to and I knew of Lucinda through her.
The Importance of Conscious Intention
By Joanne Pinney
In Conversations with God, Neale Donald Walsch writes that “your life proceeds out of your intentions for it.” Would you get in your car in the morning and just go, without any intention of where you wanted to end up? Many of us bound out of bed each day with hardly any conscious intention at all. Then the day arrives when we cry out in anguish, “How did I get here, why did this happen to me?” We aren’t pleased with our destination, to say the least. Sometimes we are terrified of the place we’ve arrived; we perceive catastrophe! Then, we project blame onto family and friends, onto our employers, onto our government. We perceive that life has dealt us an unfair blow, rather than take responsibility for the life we have created through our unconscious intentions or lack of intentions for it.
If someone who loved you gave you the gift of the best Mercedez Benz available, I bet you’d fill the tank with premium gasoline, keep the maintenance schedule and keep your Benz spotless. Our physical bodies are the vehicle for our soul and spirit. And as my Reiki friend from North Carolina, Joanne once told me, “God, don’t make no junk.” We have been gifted the very best vehicle God ever made.
So why do some of us continue to put a substance in it that has 92 known health hazards associated with it including headaches, anxiety attacks, seizures, brain tumors, Alzheimer’s, Cancer and Lupus? Why would we feed this substance to our children? How could our government, which is fully aware of these hazards, feed it to our troops?
The answer to the first two questions is marketing, in this instance, brainwashing. The answer to the last question is greed, aka drug company profits.
When Mother Theresa was asked if she would attend an antiwar rally, she responded, “No, but if you hold a peace rally, I will come.”
Here’s The REALLY BIG SECRET that hasn’t made it into general consciousness yet, and it’s used to manipulate the public at large. Whenever we engage in a position that is “anti”, we give energy to that which we oppose. Where thought goes, energy follows. The way to manifest the change you desire, is to energize the goal with sustained positive thought, creative visualization and right action. (I will write much more about this in a later column.)
