A Quote by Peter O. Erbe on worship, intent, contradiction, and belief

"Whatever we fight, we shall strengthen, for the mere fact of fighting it is witness to our belief in it......Belief is but worship by degree. To fight what we worship is a contradiction in itself. Resistance of any kind  achieves the opposite of its intent."

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on spirit, perception, intent, and freedom

The third point of reference is freedom of perception; it is intent; it is spirit; the somersault of thought into the miraculous; the act of reaching beyond our boundaries and touching the inconceivable.

A Quote by Robin Sharma on focus, intent, and accomplishment

There is great power in focusing on what you want..... The person who tries to do everything accomplishes nothing. Most people try to be all things to everyone. And so they end up being nothing to anyone. Confucius nailed the point: "Person who chases two rabbits catches neither."

A Quote by Barbara Marciniak on change, intent, and imprint

"Everything changes when you start to emit your own frequency rather than absorbing the frequencies around you, when you start imprinting your intent on the universe rather than receiving an imprint from existence."

A Quote by Thomas Moore on questions, answers, insights, searching, focus, intent, and loss

In a story told in many traditions and versions; a man is crouched over the ground at night under a lamppost obviously looking for something.  A passerby asks, "Have you lost something?", "Yes, my key," he says.  "Did you lose it here?"  "No", he says, "over there, but there's light over here."

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on vision and intent

Intent is not a thought, or an object, or a wish. Intent is what can make a man succeed when his thoughts tell him that he is defeated. It operates in spite of the warrior’s indulgence. Intent is what makes him invulnerable. Intent is what sends a shaman through a wall, through space, to infinity.
