intention, intention, intention

Supposedly there is a Swedish saying:

Those who wish to sing always find a song.

It’s pretty delightful, there really are so much out there.

So, a book I’m reading talked about intention being synonymous with being mindful. Mindfulness is a typical topic in yoga classes and I thought that I was familiar with what it meant- it being something like being aware, caring, observing. But there is more, setting the intention!

To know, to be aware of yourself, consciously and to be aware of your actions which sometimes you’re unaware of, unconscious reactive things that you do because of habit.

And being mindful is not just meditating- quietly observing within and the world around, not just appreciating what is, but to actively be all that you wish.

Because, as Oscar Wilde said:

In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.
