intention

i’ve been bumping into this word almost daily for a few months now. i started hearing it long ago in a kripalu yoga class, but lately i hear it everywhere. not giving much stock to coincidence anymore, but thinking more about synchronicity, i guess i better pay closer attention to intention. i admit i haven’t been dealing with things in a mindful way, but rather have just been reacting. maybe the universe is annoyed with me and has decided to start nagging?

    From Webster’s Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary:
    Intention
    1. A determination to act in a certain way; resolve
    2. Purpose with respect to marriage
    3. an intended object or aim; the object for which a prayer, mass, or pious act is offered
    4. Import; significance
    5. Concept; a concept considered as the product of attention directed to an object of knowledge
    6. A process or manner of healing of incised wounds
    Maybe something in there will strike a chord.
    Of course, those definitions don’t take into consideration the new-age sort of spiritual connotation of the word intention…
    An synchronicity is a whole ‘nother kettle of fish.
