Ahhh, desire...

Intentions can take a direct path but also many indirect ones. Forcing your fulfillment to come only one way while being blind to other ways often leads to disappointment.

Intention will reach a conclusion unless blocked or thwarted. A desire is blocked or detoured by unclear or conflicted desires, self-judgment, the person’s level of consciousness, etc., all of which are internal obstacles.

Intention is not blocked by external obstacles except insofar as they reflect internal obstacles. On its own, the mechanics of intention works to find the shortest and most economical path to fulfillment.

~ Deepak Chopra

Quotes of the day... 2/9/15

We avoid jealousy by...
- surrounding ourselves with trustworthy people
- cultivating a high sense of self worth
- celebrating others' successes
- taking stock of our blessings
- knowing when to unplug
- not seeking approval from other people
- not focusing on labels
- not comparing ourselves to others
      ~adapted, Lindsay Holmes

Our brains have this annoying tendency 
to ruminate on worst-case scenarios 
and other negative reflections. 
This creates negative expectations. 
Seek and ye shall find. 
     ~adapted, Steve Orma
