Attention and Intention walked into a bar….

October 5, 2020 by Comments

As per Deepok Chopra, attention energizes, intention transforms.

This just hit me so profoundly right now during these times. It made me get so microscopically attuned to paying attention to what I was paying attention to – and what I am energizing in my life.

Then I realized it’s not so much what I’m paying attention to, but HOW I’m internalizing and interpreting what I’m paying attention to that can either energize positive or negative feelings.

And lately, there’s a lot out there to pay attention to that can make us feel like crap.

However, if intention transforms, then perhaps I can make the intention to see and feel and interpret what I’m putting my attention on in a different way – a way that energizes me in a positive way rather than drains the daylights out of me.  Intend to find that nugget of grace, appreciation, and gratitude in every situation. Transform the energized energy into fuel that will feed me rather than starve me.

So I’m adding onto Deepok’s brilliant 4 word statement with this Ali amendment:

If attention energizes and intention transforms, then make the intention to transform and energize whatever you’re paying attention to into love and light.

Not as to the point and profound as Deepok, but helping me get through these challenging times.

BTW: On a side note, make sure to check out the movie The Peanut Butter Falcon on Amazon Prime.  And My Octopus Teacher on Netflix.  And Ted Lasso on Apple TV.  All uplifting, inspiring works of art that intentionally draw our attention to the love and light in us all.
