Motivation or Intention

reasons

Behind motivation is always a reason – a goal. That goal then becomes the drive to do something – the motivation.

Intention on the other hand is a much deeper and more subtle character. It is based on deep feelings within the heart – good or bad feelings alike. Those feelings then become the drive behind our goals and aspirations.

So what, I hear you ask…

It is far easier to see our motivations but to see our intentions requires us to dig deeper within the self.

I wish to win the race is my motivation. If I fail then my drive dissipates, my hope and self belief start to falter.
Of course I wish to win the race, but if my intention is to prove I am capable, then win or lose I will not have lost the drive behind the action – the self respect and the will to carry on.

Am I driven by motivation or intention?

 

Om Shanti

Impressed by Impressions

waste_thoughts

Did you know that within the first 10 seconds of meeting someone we subconsciously create an impression about them? An impression based on what they look like, how they talk and even the space between their eyes! But most of all on the way they make us feel.

We create an impression and then our communication and behaviour that follows will be based on that impression. Everything they do or say will also continue to justify our theory and reaffirm our impression.

We put up our defences, based on impressions, and then work from that standpoint. We create false walls of illusion based on our so called ‘experience’. It is no wonder that we have such challenges in our relationships and such disorder in our society.

Don’t become impressed by impressions … take a fresh look!

 

Om Shanti

The Still Point

being_centred

In my mind, can I ‘hold’ this moment, this second, right now?

If I hold it I will experience the ‘still point’. It is the experience of eternity, of time, of self. Within this moment there is everything that is, was and ever will be.

It is an amazing feeling which brings me face to face with truth.
This is what I am, this is what I was and will be forever – nothing more and nothing less.
Everything else is only a passing scene.

Stop and stand within the Still Point for a moment and see.

 

Om Shanti
