Universal Law #4: 'Intend'

Posted: Updated:

Article five in a series of six -- "The Art of Manifestation"

In the beginning there was desire, which was the first seed of mind. Sages, having meditated in their hearts, have discovered through their wisdom the connection between the existent and the nonexistent.

At the quantum level of our existence, there is nothing but energy and information. We refer to this as pure consciousness or potential. It is the energy of pure potential from which all is created. The way humans influence this field is via brain waves that are refined or tuned to an intention. This intention is the result of desire.

Everything in existence is nothing but energy and information. As we set an intention, we create waves that cause movement. Before we manifest, this field of information and energy sits ready, waiting for an intention to be set so it can go to work handling all the details for us. It does this if the intention is deliberate and clear or whether it is simply an outcropping of the subconscious mind. Both conscious and subconscious thought function in a similar manner, causing a ripple effect.

Physically speaking, everything is made up of the same recycled elements. Carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and the rest in minute amounts are at the essence of an intention. The only difference between humans and a plant is energy and information.

Unlike other life forms, humans have the capacity to become aware of the energy and information that make up our physical body. We can experience subjectively based on our own thoughts and emotions. The physical body, on the other hand, experiences this field objectively. At the same time, our body is not separate. We are all connected in a bowl of quantum soup. At the quantum mechanical level we cannot define the borders, as we are merely an extension of the universe in the same way a fish is connected to the water it swims in. A mere flick of the tail creates a ripple that affects every water molecule throughout the oceans. We are connected to our universe in a similar fashion, only replace the tail with a brain wave or thought.

It is the human nervous system that allows us to become aware of the information and energy of its own quantum field. We are able to consciously change the information content, and in the process, change our physical existence. Through attention and intention we can transform our energy field. By setting an intention we transform matter. Through attention, we energize the field and inspire movement to occur. Whenever you take your attention away from something you pull energy away.

An intention set in a field of attention has infinite organizing power.

This all occurs in the zero-point field. There is no such thing as time, in this universe. Time is a man-made concept used to measure only. It is not real. When we set an intention under the scope of attention, we have the ability to organize an infinite number of space/time events in the present moment. Again, since time is an illusion, the present moment is all there really is, everything else is a memory or a projection. Most all theological texts refer to this process as prayer, meditation, chanting. All of these precepts are teaching us how to manifest.

In nature, everything correlates and connects with everything else. Like a set of finely-tuned instruments played by trained musicians in a symphony, the music we call life is played out effortlessly, without control or hesitation. Like in the human body, a single cell carries out as many as six trillion functions in a split second. In a moment of time, it knows what every other cell is doing. It is entangled. It is connected like a fish and the ocean. In quantum theory, we refer to this as the zero-point field.

Our nervous system is what gives us access to the pilot house that allows us to navigate the waters of life, organizing and paving the way through conscious intent. As we set an intention under the guise of attention, we engage source energy -- the same energy that creates worlds from pure consciousness. As you set an intention that is in alignment with the "greater good," you will begin to witness a spontaneous frictionless flow of consciousness that initiates the process of manifestation. As you become in alignment, you will see synchronistic events that bring you toward your intention effortlessly and without fail.

Many thanks for your "likes" and thoughtful commentary. Your participation is appreciated and your recognition always honored. Best, Peter

Think Yourself Young now available on Kindle -- I discuss diet and meditational techniques according to the Tibetan Monks that I was able to interview living amongst them while at the Lama Temple in Beijing, China. These folks appear to be able to stop physiological time dead in its tracks, with the net result being a high-quality life beyond 120 years.
