Intention, as Wayne Dyer explains the term, is an infinite field of energy and potential that animates life and is the source for all life. Its explanation ties to what we know about quantum physics. Many folks would just call it God.
Dyer further explains:
- We are connected to this field of energy.
- The more in harmony you are with this field of intention, the more you are able to do all that the field of intention can do: heal, attract, and find.
- People in harmony with this field are especially concerned with cleansing the link to it which may be compromised by the numbing effects brought about by all the concerns of living at ordinary levels of consciousness.
Dyer asks us to consider the origins of life, first beginning with the "dot" of protoplasm represented by either the egg or the sperm. That dot consists of molecules, which in turn consists of atoms. Look into one atom and you find the electron, neutron, and proton and a lot of empty space. Put that atom into an accelerator, bomb it with other particles, and out comes leptons, quarks, photons, and gluons. Pull the smallest components apart and eventually you get to nothing . . . and everything.
Recently, the universe made the headlines. A couple of scientists offered a new hypothesis, suggesting that the universe has always existed. No big bang needed. I find this idea especially comforting. We are bathed in the universe and it has always existed.
Dyer takes it further. He says:
- Everything in this universe was intended, including you.
- What am I? A piece of divine force disguised as a human being.
- The seven faces of intention are: creative, kind, loving, beautiful, expanding, abundant, and receptive.
- Choose to be in close proximity to people who are empowering, who appeal to your sense of connection, to intention, who see the greatness in you, and feel connected to the universe.
- Live under the assumption that your intention has already happened.
- Intentions that are focused through an integrated whole personality are like a laser -- a single, clear beam.
- He knew the truth of who he was, which made his mind a veritable laser.
- Launch a rocket of desire! Then give it attention to add mass.
- Trust the love that can be translated into action. (Geeneen Roth)
- Whatever I focus on expands.
