What is it that you want to bring into your life this coming year? Whatever it is, it needs the backing of your attention.
One of the biggest gifts you can give yourself is your attention. But, often, we have attention for television, newspapers, magazines, for everything but ourselves.
Our attention is the supreme currency of life. What we place our attention on is what grows.
We can have an intention of experiencing supreme joy, but what we find is that our attention is not there with us. Our attention is always on what’s not there, on the obstacle, not on the transcendence of it, going beyond it.
Everyone wants to solve the problems but then life becomes a bigger problem, as this is what you are focusing on. Then your whole journey becomes about solving the problem.
You solve the problem of not having enough money. Then you need to solve the problem of not having a family. It’s just one problem after another.
But when intention and attention align, when they match, when your attention supports your intention, this attachment to problems, this attention on what is not there, this ‘what about me’, this little voice in the head, ceases to be.
Are you willing to live from that place?
If so, go to your highest intention and bring it fully into this moment with your total attention.
Declare your intention to the universe and then become radically available to that showing up in your life.
And you might find that when there’s a challenge, the mind’s ‘reasoning’ will appear, as your lower self has a resistance to your own true nature. Observe this but favor your intention.
What is your intention for this coming year? What are you living for? Keep bringing your attention back to your intention. Act from your intention.
As you do this consistently, a life of boundless joy emerges.
Start this new year off right. Come to silence, set your intention and back yourself in each moment as you stride into this new year and step into a new you. You’ve got this!
