The Power of Intent
All human beings have a certain intent.This is very close to motivation. For example, the two major types ofintents are the one which is bound to lead a person towardsself-advancement and constant progress, willing to learn new thingsand being open to new experiences, and the second one isstaying in a closed status quo, with nothing new in your life,gradually decomposing, having an unconscious intent to do so.Therefore, intent plays a crucial part in our personalities and lifein general, being a strong guidance of our own inner “I”.
The Intent and Its Direction
We, as human beings, are born into aworld which has already been molded to “perfection” which is farfrom perfect. So, during our childhood, we develop into a person whois taught how to deal with life in a way which is more or lesstypical for other members of the human race. Therefore, when wefinish education, learning only about certain kinds of things andneglecting everything else, we are to find jobs which will usually bemonotonous and not to our liking, get married to whomever, only tosatisfy the social norms and give birth to children who will repeatthe endless cycle. All this is lead by the intent to control. Werestrain ourselves from exploring the world further and finding allthe hidden joys which are all around us. This does not mean to lead ahedonistic life or something similar. Rather, this means not to takeeverything around you for granted and not to believe every word youhave been taught. Especially, this means to stay away from our“normal” sources of addiction like TV, the Internet, excessivefood, drug or alcohol consumption, gambling, shopping, work etc.
Anxiety usually triggers this kind oflife. Having an intent to control your life completely and mold itinto a socially acceptable one is the wrong thing to do. Usually,then, you will neglect love and happiness, choosing envy, vanity,conservative behavior and acting over the true intent boiling insideyou, suppressed forever.
How To Get Out of the Negative Intent?
Start by changing your intent to a morepositive one. Motivate yourself towards self-advancement. This worldhas plenty of things to learn. The most positive things nowadays areadvancement which is reflected through monetary or military power. Ittakes no genius to realize that this can hardly be right. Therefore,let the intent of being better than the rest guide you to moreinformation, more knowledge and more love towards those who deserveyour affection. Be a more positive person and do not let the dailygrind get the best of you. Constantly remind yourself that you arethe most important person in your life, being a caring, loving andhealthy individual, no matter what the rest tell you to be.
