What is an intent?

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

When we say “I intend to eat better” or I intend to go shopping,” we express a future aim. Yet I have to say that true intent is more than just future goal-setting.

True intent is not created by us planning our daily life. True intent is what the soul tell us to do.

If we listen to the soul, if we pay attention, it will tell us what we need to do. And we can recognize that as an intent, the result of which we cannot predict, but which will serve the greater good.

Mother Teresa did not intend to become a saint. She followed a soul calling that said — go to India, serve the poor, because this is an authentic part of who you are.

When we follow the soul intentions miracles will happen.
