View of the college where I write sometimes.
Setting intentions is potentially very powerful for keeping us on track throughout the day.
My aim is to feel good all day, and by writing about it I keep myself focused on this goal.
I begin to notice the times of day when I don’t feel good, and I want to bring those moments up to speed with this intention.
Feeling good all day…how does it sound to you? Once I might have scoffed at it, but now it sounds like paradise and I’m more than halfway there.
There are not many subjects of importance to us in life. Most of us desire wealth, a home, good relationships, health, and friendship. If you can prove to yourself that feeling good is the answer to any one of these subjects the rest start succumbing to the same beautiful reason.
Last night I decided I wanted physical vitality. I set my intention, and later that evening while training Kungfu it naturally occurred to me that I can set an intention to be good at Kungfu as well.
How funny! The joke might be a private one, but for many years I’ve strived to be good at Kungfu by understanding it and practicing it. I never thought it could be so simple as just wanting to be good at it, and more importantly: wanting to enjoy it.
So set your intentions, please. I want to feel good. I want to wake up feeling excited about the day. I want to find enjoyment and upliftment in all my activities. I want to enjoy clarity, adventure, satisfaction and ease on every subject in my life!
