love is intentional
When you move forward with your energy, you are filling the space with intention. Intention works like ripples of you that move things. When things go in another direction than you thought they should, it's because they need to do exactly what they're doing. You'll learn something other than you thought you would. But it's your intention, the push behind the movement, that moves you to where you need to be, regardless of the outcome.
Which is why the best intention of all is love.
When you fill your space with the intention of love, then you become the loving force yourself. Expansive. Forgiving. Strong and yielding, wise yet always the student. When your intention from the outset is love, you pour that into all of your interactions.
Isn't that nice?
Just think of it from the other side. Suppose all the people you know, even the ones who have a disagreement with you, put forward the intention of love when they spoke and interacted with you. How would that make you feel? Cared about? Joyous?
Maybe a little buoyant?
Putting forward an intention that promotes buoyancy of the human spirit. Now, there's a concept we can get behind, right?
We can change the world with intention, one loving interaction at a time. We don't have to think badly of each other, even when we don't agree. We don't have to sit in a corner of hurt over unintentional slights, or even intentional ones.
We can choose differently. We can react with a deep, caring love that reaches beyond the hurt. We can't be everything to everyone, but we can sure be loving towards everyone. Even people who don't make it easy. We can love them too.
Be generous with your "I love you"s. Don't be scared it won't come back to you. The more you put out there, the more it will come back to you, in abundance, with multitude.
Give the gift of buoyancy today.
