Another Look at Intention

My definition of the word intention has to do with absolute dedication and determination. It sounds so much more powerful than words like hope, plan, try, dream, etc.

But in the book The Power of Intention, Dr. Wayne Dyer quotes Carlos Castaneda: “intent is a force that exists in the Universe. When sorcerers (those who live of the Source) beckon intent, it comes to them and sets up the path for attainment, which means that sorcerers always accomplish what they set out to do.”

There goes my interpretation of the word Sorcerer. But doesn’t that new definition feel good? So a sorcerer is not just some really old guy in a pointed hat–it is me, when I remember than Spirit (God, the Universe, my Higher Power) is the source of and for all my good.

    Thank you for this! I love the quote from Castaneda… and the new definition. Intention is something I really needed to think about today as I head down the home stretch of the grad school application process. Thank you for all of your support!
