Purpose and Intention

By Wayne Dyer  

The theme of this article is that intention is a force in the universe, and that everything and everyone is connected to this invisible force. Since this is an intelligent system we’re all a part of, and everything that arrives here came from that intelligence, it follows that if it wasn’t supposed to be here, then it wouldn’t be here. And if it’s here, then it’s supposed to be, and that’s enough for me. The very fact of your existence indicates that you have a purpose. As mentioned, the key question for most of us is: “What is my purpose?” And I hear that question in as many forms as there are people wondering about it: What am I supposed to be doing? Should I be an architect, a florist, or a veterinarian? Should I help people or fix automobiles? Am I supposed to have a family or be in the jungle saving the chimpanzees? We’re befuddled by the endless number of options available to us, and wonder whether we’re doing the right thing.

I urge you to forget these questions. Move instead to a place of faith and trust in the universal mind of intention, remembering that you emanated from this mind and that you’re a piece of it at all times.

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 you 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.
