Have you ever asked yourself why you are here, in this life, with this family in these circumstances? I have long ago stopped believing in coincidences and accidents in my life, random acts or random events. As human beings, we have learned to organize sensory data into coherent patterns. We imbue those patterns with meaning in the attempt to make sense of our surroundings. We invented a law we call “The Law of Cause and Effect”, to attempt to explain the sequential nature of events.
This law states that for every effect, there is a cause and for every cause, an effect. No randomness here! Things don’t just happen without something causing them to occur. The cause of every effect also turns out to be the effect of some other cause and so on and so on. Where did it all begin? Are there “root causes” that nothing else has caused?
There is organization at every level of existence, even in apparent chaos, but this organization is not based on cause and effect, which is linear, but instead on another principle. Let’s call this other principle “The Law of Creation”. The Law of Creation works through the power of intention. The Universe will conform and arrange events that lead to a specific goal when something is intended with enough focus. The order of events is of lesser importance. There may be an infinite number of paths that will lead to the same goal. Intention is what drives the Universe.
Everything else will sort itself out to conform to intention. Cause and effect are only the observed sequence of events that has led to the point that intention has determined. There could have been countless other sequences that could have led to the same results. The difficulty we have in perceiving the Law of Creation lies in the fact that we perceive ourselves embedded in time. Time provides us with a chronological framework, but intention is a non-linear process.
I was fortunate to recently hear Dr. Wayne Dyer give his presentation on PBS on the power of intention, after his new book of the same name. A brilliant speaker and lecturer, Mr. Dyer explained that we all are connected to Source energy by an energetic conduit, from which we can draw energy to manifest our intentions. In order to have access to that abundant, loving energy we need to clear our conduit to Source of all emotional patterns and obstructions that would block that flow of energy. He calls that “polishing your conduit”. I call it charting your energy. That is what the charting process is about. Clearing the emotional patterns from your energy body that you have created through all of your many lifetimes is how you clear your connecting link to Source energy.
Lack of love creates emotional patterns through misperception. These lodge in your energy field and interfere with the flow of energy. Clearing your connection to Source puts you in touch with the field of intention. Dyer says, “The lesson is clear in terms of removing lower energy obstacles. We must raise ourselves to the levels of energy where we are the light we seek, where we are the happiness we desire, where we are the love we feel is missing, where we are the unlimited abundance we crave. By being it, we attract it to us. By condemning its absence, we ensure the condemnation and discord will continue to flow into our lives.”
You are here on Earth “on purpose”. Clearing your energy and connecting to the power of intention allows you to live your life on purpose as well. The Buddha said that, “Those that have failed to work towards the truth have missed the purpose of living”.
Wayne Dyer adds, “Intention and purpose are as beautifully and naturally intertwined as the double helix of your DNA. There are no accidents. You’re here for the purpose that you signed up for before you entered the world of particles and form. Many of the things that you refer to as problems result from the fact that you’re disconnected from intention and therefore unaware of your true spiritual identity. The process of polishing that connecting link and reconnecting is basic to your intention to live your life on purpose. As you cleanse this link, you’ll make two very important discoveries. First, you’ll discover that your purpose is not as much about what to do as it is about how you feel. Your second discovery will be that feeling purposeful activates your power of intention to create anything that’s consistent with the seven faces of intention.”
The Law of Creation is how God creates and it is how we can also create when we align ourselves with Source energy. Don’t worry about the details of how you will get there. Let the field of intention direct the flow of events. There are many routes that will lead to where you want to go. Be open and aware of all the synchronicities that will occur, like signposts along the road. Hold your unwavering intention in your mind and trust that the same creative force that brought you into the world can also manifest your desires.
