The Metaphysical Healing Precept of
Intent



all Healing is ultimately
the adventure of re-discovering
your Original Purpose and Intent ...
and learning to again love yourself
exactly as you are -
right here, right now



We are Beings of Intent and Purpose.

Now, the term Intent seems to be something ethereal ... slightly out of reach.

For most of us Intent is concept, rather than an experience.

So letís explore Intent for a little time.

Before proceding further, please read the following instructions carefully, then do exactly what they describe - when you have performed the action, read further -



keeping your eyes open, remain absolutely conscious
and raise your left forefinger so it is pointing upward.
Do this now.


Now, lower your finger - and continue reading.

Please take a few moments to describe to yourself your experience, and exactly how you raised your finger, before continuing.

Do this now, then continue reading ...

You probably noticed at least a bit of confusion, then one or more thoughts such as - "whatís this all about?" - just prior to raising your finger.

There may have been other fleeting thoughts about this exercise, itself, as well.

ItĎs most likely your description of how you raised your finger detailed one or more physical actions: nerves pulsating, tendons pulling, muscles moving, etc.

While this is correct on the physical level, it is not actually how you raised your finger ... itĎs only description of how your body mechanically performed the physical action of pointing your forefinger upward.

Letís do it again.



keeping your eyes open, remain absolutely conscious
and raise your left forefinger so it is pointing upward.
Do this now.


Now, lower your finger - and continue reading.

Please take a few moments to describe to yourself your experience, and exactly how you raised your finger, before continuing.

Do this now, then continue reading ...

Most likely you experienced a little irritation at the repetition of the exercise.

Then your mind probably brought up one or more further - possibly more judgmental - thoughts about the exercise.

Your description of how you raised your finger may have included "I thought about - or imagined - it first Ö then my nerves, muscles, etc. responded."

Weíre getting closer, but letís move right into it this time.

The instructions have changed slightly, so please read them carefully before proceeding:



keeping your eyes open, remain absolutely conscious -
be absolutely aware of it all ... everything -
and raise your left forefinger so it is pointing upward.
Do this now.


Mow, lower your finger - and continue reading.

Did you notice a very, very tiny pause - just before the thoughts and Imaginings came?

Itís so small, itís hardly noticeable, but itís there.

An infintesimal, silent pause-between-moments.

Letís do it one more time:



keeping your eyes open, remain absolutely conscious
be absolutely aware of it all ... everything -
and raise your left forefinger so it is pointing upward.
Do this now.


Now, lower your finger - and continue reading.

Did you experience it?

The barest fraction of a silent pause-between-moments ...

Most likely you immediately had thoughts of surprise, or even pride in noticing the silent-pause-moments.

It is in this pause-between-moments, that youíve actually experienced pure, unadorned Intent.

Thereís no Imagining or thinking - just silent Intent, in which the raising of your finger simply Is.

Then came the thoughts, emotions, and physical action of pointing your forefinger upward.

In this sub-atomic-sized, outside time and space, pause-between-moments, you became the Suchness of An Upward-Pointing Finger.

Then the "machinery" - the thoughts, images, and physical actions - all took place within time & space ...

... and your left forefinger pointed upward.

You - as pure Intent - included Upward-Pointing Fingerness Ö and there was only a little time & distance between that pause-between-moments and the manifestation of your right forefinger pointing upward.

Intent isnít thought, image, belief or anything physical. It simply Is.

Intent is the matrix ... the beyond-time-and-space Suchness ... within which everything we experience in our minds and bodies Is.

Our Original Intent is Love.

From our Intent - Love - is born Purpose.

Our Purpose is to Serve ... to be Valuable contributors to the universal Unfolding of Love, Truth and Light wherever we are Present.

It is our True Nature to Love.

We are capable of loving anything and everything, Every Living Thing ...

... and even ideas, concepts and beliefs.

It is also our True Nature to Serve.

Our Original Intent and Purpose is to Love and Serve.

Because every Living Thing also has the Intent and Purpose to Love and Serve, our Service-Nature is manifested in nearly all our relationships and activities.

We serve our family in our roles as children, siblings, lovers and parents -
We serve our friends by acting in accord with their needs -
We serve our pets as caretakers -
We serve our employers as workers -

We serve each other as friends, lovers & neighbors
~ sometimes as apparent adversaries ~
and always as Companions along The Way.

In every case, the "recipient" also serves the "giver"
in a perpetual cycle of mutual Service beyond superficial appearances.
(think about it)

We manifest Service by our thoughts, beliefs and actions about and toward who or whatever we are serving.

Ultimately, it is through our unique Who-We-Really-Are Presence, that true Service is pure, complete and effortless ...

It is this Presence that is the first manifestation of our Original Intent, Love.

The manifestation of Service is best accomplished when we can share our Here-and-Now Love-Presence without conditions or limitations.

To the extent we are limited in sharing our Here-and-Now Love-Presence, our Service is also limited.

Dis-ease limits our ability to share our-self and to Serve, on every level.

It is when we have become mis-aligned with our Original Intent and Purpose, that we become vulnerable to the manifestation of any dis-ease process.

Mis-alignment with our Original Intent and Purpose occurs when we believe we are not-Valuable, and un-Worthy-of-Love.

There are an endless variety of bacteria, infections, viruses and other potentials ďout thereĒ - with which we come into contact at every moment.

Noticeably, each of us "comes down" with only certain dis-eases - but not others - despite the myriad organisms available to "infect" us.

This is because we are unique ... even in our experience and manifestation of our beliefs about our non-Value and un-Worthiness-of-love.

Every dis-ease process always most-appropriately demonstrates that area in which we have an opportunity to better express our Original Intent, and fulfill our unique Purpose.

When we experience any dis-ease process, we are giving ourself the opportunity to create a paradigm of Intent within which Healing can manifest ... so that we can experience and express the joy of fulfilling our Purpose.

Healing Intent must be demonstrated on every manifest level, so that our Healing is total and complete.

Otherwise, we will continue to experience further opportunities to re-align with our Intent and Purpose, until we have actually done so.
