THE act of true intending is widely misunderstood, because there are hidden aspects of so-called intent consisting solely of desire for personal fulfillment.
Seducing the public to desire beauty, riches and power is the undisguised theme of thousands of self-help books written by money seeking modern gurus.
But there is a higher, purer and more unselfish level of intention in true occultism. It is the unseen power to bring to pass desired results without personal motives.
Success at this level requires a knowledge far beyond any kind of falsehood, and is based on knowledge of an innate spiritual force in man and nature. Those who practiced it in ancient times were the initiates, the wise ones called “Magi” — the source of the word “magic.”
Lynne McTaggart, author of The Intention Experiment, featured in Dan Brown’s Book – The Lost Symbol: “…human consciousness, as Noetic author Lynne McTaggart described it, was a substance outside the confines of the body. A highly ordered energy capable of changing the physical world.”
“Katherine (Solomon) had been fascinated by McTaggart’s book ‘The Intention Experiment’, and her global, Web-based study – theintentionexperiment.com— aimed at discovering how human intention could affect the world.”
— Dan Brown, “The Lost Symbol” (Random House, 2009)

MORE than five-thousand years ago, Chinese doctors described hundreds of invisible energy meridians throughout the human body.
When these pathways were unblocked and revitalized, people quickly healed. This is the ancient system of healing we call acupuncture today, which uses special sterilized needles.
But many healers today are literally tapping into this natural energy system of the body, without needles, using only their bare hands and fingers.
Using this new system ordinary people are learning to master all the “mental changes” in themselves, as taught by The Voice of the Silence, and report healing almost instantly.
They learn how to “harmless make” the stubborn thought and emotional issues that have plague them, often embedded in early childhood, causing numerous physical, emotional and psychological illnesses as adults.
The success of the technique is an object lesson in what Einstein meant when he famously wrote: “We can’t solve problems, by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
Instead the old thought forms blocking the flow of natural energies in our system have to be cleared. As we free ourselves from old habits of thinking, we come to recognize our hand in the problems they cause.
In psychological terms it means assuming personal karmic self-responsibility, and there’s nothing in the universe, even atomic energy, more powerful than acceptance.
It’s probably an understatement to say it’s difficult for most people to get to the root cause of difficult issues, especially if the causes were setup in a past life they cannot consciously now recall.
It is the forgotten events, limiting beliefs, and fixed emotional patterns that glue us to our fate as flypaper does a fly.

ASTRONAUT Edgar Mitchell’s epiphany struck when he looked out the window of his spacecraft at the Earth, Moon and Sun, surrounded by an infinitely vast universe.
Suddenly it came to him that the molecules and cells of our bodies must have had their origin in those faraway stars.
It was at that moment an overwhelming realization of the interconnectedness of all life dawned on him. It was a life-altering flash of insight — not an “intellectual knowledge,” he says, but in a “visceral knowing.”
“It was accompanied by a very blissful feeling that I had never experienced before.”
Dr. Mitchell describes being completely engulfed by a profound sense of universal connectedness, in this excerpt from Renée Scheltema’s visionary film, Something Unknown is Doing We Don’t Know What.
Having had such a life-changing experience, sometimes called the Overview Effect, the former astronaut, along with parapsychologist Charles Tart, attempt to interpret the non-linear feelings and insights for the rest of us.

ELEVEN years old and “willing to help” was how Olivia Bouler described herself to the Audubon Society when she contacted them about the infamous oil spill tragedy in the Gulf.
The youthful and aspiring ornithologist, artist, and saxophone player wept — like many of us — when she heard about the oil spill in the news.
But uniquely, Olivia was moved to help. Knowing birds were going to suffer, she had to take action.
Inspired by her hero, James Audubon, Olivia wrote to the Audubon Society about her fund-raising idea — using her talent as an artist to give bird drawings to those who donated to wildlife recovery efforts.
To date, she has drawn more than 100 different species of birds, and 400 + original drawings. Olivia was recently featured as an AOL Artist, and the company donated $25,000 to the Audubon Society in her name.
To appreciate the sacredness of nature doesn’t always take the insights of a naturalist like John Muir. Often it only requires an innocence of heart, usually a child’s — as in Matthew 18:3-4, to “become as little children.”
Unlike adults, young children don’t mince words just to win approval. What they see is what they say.
In her restoration of Theosophy in the world, H. P. Blavatsky was not abstract when it came to standing up for the planet —“help Nature and work on with her” she wrote — and stood up for what she saw as widespread animal abuse and cruelty. (See recent post: Animal Souls)
To become true planetary partners, Blavatsky wrote, we must learn from the Book of the Golden Precepts to “regain the child-state” we have lost.

FIRST is the story of Shirley and Jenny, two crippled elephants reunited at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee after a 22-year separation.
The bonding was immediate, intense and unforgettable between the two former circus elephants.
Not a new story but worth watching again and again. So amazingly touching — but long after the cameras were turned off, the wondrous moments would continue…
