Some Very Good News..

Dear Friends,
Some of you will remember that last year I asked all of you for your help giving a financial hand to my good friend Tom Morrow as he battled throat cancer. I just wanted to let you know that I spoke with him last night and his doctors have informed him that he is cancer free! He's even been doing a few gigs singing (though he joked about being able to do Tom Waits cover songs now since his voice is a little more gruff...).
In any case he asked me to pass along his heartfelt thanks to all of you for all of your support, good wishes and energy.

Enjoy your day, Jim

Intention and Creating Your Desired Condition

by Jim Donovan

The power of intention is an important ally in learning to direct your energy. Intention means consciously deciding to bring about a specific circumstance. For example, you can hold an intention of creating a peaceful environment around you. In the process of creating this environment, you first have the thought, then as you hold the thought, you take action. Thought without action only moves energy in small ways. Thought coupled with action, emotion and desire allows you to manifest. The thought of the desired circumstance followed by action, is intention- which ultimately progresses towards manifestation.

As important as it is to understand your core beliefs, it's equally important to understand your intentions behind why you choose to act in a particular way. It's kind of like seeing the flower but also knowing where the root is and what causes it to grow.
