Intention and Focus

Being whole is what you are naturally, therefore whatever you feel is within that wholeness. Now, you may limit what you feel and believe that what I am feeling now is IT, and when you impose such limits on your experiencing, IT complies with your imposed limitations.

A headache may be present due to various reasons, sometimes having a headache is useful, for instance, if you are banging your head against a brick wall, you will experience a headache. In that instance the pain you are experiencing is telling you that banging your head on a brick wall hurts your body, and therefore might be also implying to you, that you should stop doing that.

Our experiences are our experiences, not by accident, because there are no accidents. Our experiences are feedback information which if we pay attention to the information will lead us away from danger, for instance.

Instead of trying to get rid of the information you are receiving, it might be useful to investiage what that information is there for, and determine how you can use it to your betterment.

There is a being within/without you which holds a lot more awareness that we do when we are focusing from the perspective in human form and being. That being is really YOU. The difference is that you are identifying with the Human Being rather than the All Being. A shift in focus allows you to shift perspective and thereby find the answers and experiences which unfold for you the understand and value of the human experiences you are experiencing.

Intent may be related to focus in that you apply focus upon a topic or object or situation and intend for it to change. You can intend to observe, be aware, understand, know, experience the value of this moment right now, then let that intent go. Like an arrow you shoot from a bow, pull back the string and let it go. How true your intent is, is how truly your arrow will fly and land on the mark which is the outpicturing of your point of focus. If your focus is too broad, you might miss the target entirely and you would experience that as not what you intended, and you would experience it as not what you intended because your intent was too broad.

Example of this idea. A master archer was teaching his students to shoot a bow and hit the mark they wanted to. It so happened that the mark the master archer pointed out to them to shoot at was a bird on a branch some distance away. He told them hit that bird with your arrow. And each on pulled back the bow string then let the arrow fly. All but one missed the bird entirely, but the one who hit it, hit it right in the eye with his arrow. (sorry all you animal rights people.)

The master then asked each one what was they say when they were preparing to launch their arrows. One said, I saw the landscape and the tree, and the branches moving and the leaves, and the bird sitting on the branch. Others said similar things in agreement with the first student. Then the master called upon the student who's arrow hit the bird in the eye, he said, what did you see. The student replied, I saw the bird's eye.

I hope this is useful and helpful information.

Best regards,
