The mind is a crucial non-physical entity which can determine the course of not just an individual’s life but also that of humankind.

The mind has its unique methods of silently communicating with the cells of the body. A positive mindset, coupled with positive intentions delivers an uplifting message not just to the external world but also the cells of our body. Everybody appreciates words of encouragement and a pat on the back. The body is no exception. It is committed to working day and night from birth to death. The mind has it relatively easy. Its energy pattern follows that of the sun. It is bright and energetic in the morning, and as the day goes on, it begins to tire, and sleep comes to the rescue.

This pattern of a rise and fall in the energy levels of the mind is universal. Depending on how we use the mind, it’s energy levels may be sustained at a high level during a day or it may rapidly deplete. The choice we make through the power of intention has a significant influence on the mind and how it shapes our lives.

We unconsciously make harmful intentions by succumbing to fear and uncertainty. Once we flip the switch and turn the mind towards negativity, it takes a lot of energy to reverse course. The level of unease we feel in the body-mind complex a reminder that it is not our natural state of being.

Creating positive intentions is a conscious process. It requires a commitment on our part.

Positive intentions are more potent when we take any given moment and infuse that moment so completely with that intention that we forget everything else for that instant of time. The essence of any positive intention will then trickle through time into thoughts that surface in the future.

Space in every moment is carved up amongst various camps. Remnants of the past take up a big slice, as do thoughts of the future. Between the past and the future, much of the energy of each moment is spoken for, and little remains as free space.

Every thought carries an indelible imprint of our intentions, beneficial or harmful.

There are two aspects to consider before creating a firm, lasting, and a positive transformative intention. We can accomplish both of these through awareness.

  1. Gradually scrubbing thoughts of the imprint of harmful intentions.

When we insert a positive intention into an empty choiceless moment, it lights a spark which burns in every thought.

Just as altering the DNA changes the entire genetic blueprint we carry, working on one thought and changing its fundamental structure will spread to all other thoughts. When we empty thoughts of their contents, their shells become available to us as vehicles which can carry whatever positive intention we set. When we insert a positive intention into an empty choiceless moment, it lights a spark which burns in every thought. That intention becomes intensely powerful and lasting. When we choose the right intention for the right reasons, we become powerful agents for change in the world.
