Our intentions, moment to moment, dictate how we behave and respond to the events going on around us. Being mindful and aware we can form our intentions with deliberate thoughtfulness and care. We can live a life, present in each moment, which reflects our values and desires.
Instead of making New Year's resolutions, I plan to spend time today and hopefully everyday, mindfully observing and crafting my intentions. As Jack Kornfield says in After the Ecstasy, the Laundry, "It is from our intentions that our life grows."
Let the actions of your life shine like the jewels of royalty.
"How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing." ~ Annie Dillard
