What gets results in manifesting our desired outcomes is taking action on the intentions we’ve set. However, without the original intention, we have nothing to act upon.
Our original intentions are born of desire, of want, of a vision of something so compelling we find ourselves called to action without having to conjure up any motivation. Nothing reconnects us with our intentions more than tapping into the emotions that gave birth to them in the beginning.
The feelings behind our desires may sometimes seem larger than ourselves. We might be intimidated by the intensity of our wishes, fearing that the raw emotion may engulf us, leaving us out of control of our actions. We would find our every move dictated by our feelings, our logical mind having been dismissed and leaving us susceptible to potentially hazardous decisions made based on unbridled enthusiasm.
While careful consideration certainly has its merit, it has the potential of forcing us into an approach that is too calculated, that has become devoid of the drive that our emotions inherently provide us. We surgically plan each action in a way that prevents misstep, that provides the safest route, the methods most free from error.
Through this overly clinical process we rob ourselves of the rich lessons gained from our trials. We sacrifice the opportunity for the greatest degree of learning that occurs through the mistakes we make. Being truly tapped into our emotional intensity reaffirms the strength of our desires, reminding us that the reward in what we desire to achieve is far greater than the cost from the mistakes we make along the way.
