When you offer an intention, you initiate a natural partnership with Life. Natural creation is a collaboration between you and Life to create something together. One way to think of intention and natural creation is that both you and Life have a role to play. Your role is to offer an intention and Life’s role is to present doorways and situations for the thing you intended to unfold.
You take care of the intention and Life takes care of the outcome. Life always provide a natural outcome to your intention. If you do not care for the outcome Life presents to you, rather than trying to control the outcome or railing against Life- go back to the drawing board and offer a different intention. Simply notice and accept what Life offers back, learn from it, and offer another intention. This is the collaborative dance of natural creation.
