If our intentions are based in love strictly for the betterment of the Universe, our actions will be a reflection of this and there will be very little conflict with ourselves or with others.
Most people have good intentions when it comes to living their life, but good intentions will not really get it done. It points you in the right direction, but it doesn’t get you to where you want to go. It’s the Conditioned Mind that blocks one’s good intentions from becoming a right action because of some misconstrued idea used to justify an action not based in love. And if the action is based in some self serving intention just for the sake to satisfy self, even if achieved it will not produce lasting results. And that’s even if you get exactly what it is you intend to get.
Some examples. If you play the lottery to become rich, but know in your heart that money doesn’t buy happiness, there’ll be conflict with the intention and the action, and even if you win the lottery not much internally will change. Same thing with going on a diet. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be healthy or even wanting to have more money, but when something is used to strictly make one look better or for intentions to satisfy self, the intention and the action will be in conflict. An intention isn’t really deemed right or wrong, but if it’s base is to self serve there will be conflict with oneself and others because to self serve goes against our natural instincts.
This occurs even if an intention is to help others who are deemed less fortunate, the intention may seem to be for the greater good, but any judgement makes it self serving; if you really look into this, it will be seen most intentions are self serving. The way to align our intentions and actions is to be in harmony with Universal Love. This means your intentions to go on a diet are done to put yourself in harmony with life by not having behavior that makes you gluttonous. Same thing with money, make as much money as possible, not because of greed, but so it can be used by the Universe for the betterment of the Universe. Our intentions can’t be self serving if our actions are going to be to love. Live your life by doing things that align you with life. Don’t worry about results because when intentions are in alignment with Universal Love, one is under the care and protection of the Universe. And regardless of what happens, good, bad, or indifferent, without self serving intentions all one can do is emit energy that’s based in love; now wouldn’t that make our world different.
