The power of Intention
Question from the Internet:
“How will you impact the world the most as a result of your actions? How long will those effects last?”
At this stage, we are all focusing on the level of actions, thinking that purely by certain actions we can influence the world and change, and correct things. And while actions are truly important, how actions influence others and the world depends mostly on the intention behind those actions.
And this is where the problem starts. First of all, even regarding ourselves, most of the time we are unaware of the intentions we are acting with. We do not even think about our intentions, we take it for granted that following our “gut feelings” or following our inherent mind, logic is the right thing to do.
But the truth is, that by default, our intention is inherently set and it is always, in any given circumstances only for our own sake.
Knowingly, or unknowingly, we constantly make calculations and act for selfish fulfilment, to take ourselves closer to evergrowing selfish pleasures, and happiness while instinctively distancing ourselves from actual or expected pain, and suffering.
And since we exist in a closed, finite system, our desires for resources, and fulfilment are insatiable and constantly growing, intensifying, and we also learn that the world we exist in is fully integrated and interdependent, our original, inevitable intentions make us live and behave like cancer!
This is why individually and collectively we all influence the world in a harmful, negative, destructive way and we do not even know about this. And even if we knew about this we could not do anything against our original “software” evolution installed in us!
Thus, if we want to learn how to impact the world in a positive way, and to become a positive, mutually responsible, mutually complementing element in the integrated, interdependent world we live in, we will need to learn how to acquire, “install” a completely new intention over our original one.
We have to learn, “borrow” from Nature the system’s completely selfless, altruistic, unconditionally serving, facilitating “intention”.
With the help of a unique, purposeful and highly practical scientific method we can, first of all, recognize how our original intentions are literally killing us, and then we can harness Nature’s positive, life-giving and life-sustaining forces to “upgrade” our original nature, giving us the Natural intention that permeates and develops the whole Natural system.
Of course, we cannot do this among 8 billion or more people all at once. But we can start to experiment with this and gradually implement changing, upgrading our original intention in special, methodically organized and conducted environments among mutually committed, mutually supporting and mutually complementing people who all willingly, consciously devote themselves to this self-change, self-upgrade process.
Later, these small, initial cells of “truly Human” beings (who actively become similar to Nature above and against their inherent nature) can become the guides, “safety boats” for the relentlessly, inevitably sinking, drawing humanity, suffocating under the governance of the inherently selfish, egoistic, exploitative, destructive intention.
