Intention and Infinity

by Dr Wayne W Dyer -

Please indulge me in a little exercise right here, right now. Say out loud: I'm not from here. Let the meaning of the words be clear to you.

The meaning is that you are in this world, but not of this world. You've been taught that who you are is a body with your name, made up of molecules, bones, tissue, oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen.

You know yourself as the person with your particular name, and you identify yourself as the person with possessions and achievements that you've accumulated.

This self also possesses some terrifying information. It knows that if it's lucky, it's destined to grow old, get sick, and lose everything that it's grown to love. Then it will die.

This is a shortened version of what the world has offered you, which probably leaves you mystified and flabbergasted at the absurdity of this thing we call life.

Into this bleak picture, which inspires fear and even terror, I'd like to introduce a concept that will eliminate the terror.

I want you to know that you needn't subscribe to the idea that you are only this collection of bones and tissues, destined to be annihilated in an aging process.

You've emerged from a universal field of Creation that I've been calling intention.

In a sense, this universal mind is totally impersonal. It is pure love, fondness, beauty, and creativity, always expanding and endlessly abundant.

You emanated from this universal mind. And as I keep telling you, universal means everywhere and at all times. In other words, infinite.

As long as your wishes are aligned with the forward movement of this everlasting principle, there's nothing in nature to restrict you from attaining the fulfillment of those wishes.

It's only when you choose to allow ego to oppose the expanding, receptive forward movement of the infinite mind of intention that the realization of your wishes doesn't feel fulfilling.

Life itself is eternal and you spring from this infinite thing called life. Your ability to connect to the eternal and live in the here-and-now will determine your staying connected to intention!
