If I can't have Jane Smith, then I'll never have what I want.
My thought is that if I were to realize exactly what it is I wanted, my true desires, which would be the feelings I would get from such a relationship, the idea of having someone with these certain characteristics in my life that I could care for, that this
is where I'd want to be.
I may be wrong on this, at this point is just some thoughts, so someone feel free to correct me.
Now the tricky part is, and I'd posted a thread on this, how is it that we learn to distinguish our true desires from our wants? How do we learn to intend specifically without it being an intention from scarcity?
WOW... I've seriously read this about 3 times and it's just barely starting to gel.
But still sort of doubting myself if I do indeed catch the vision of what you're saying.
Are you sort of saying that the HOW (Jane) is limiting me? I agree.
I've had this experience several times and you'll have to be open to my frame of reference (because it's religious). But I feel God has "saved me from myself" many times. For instance. I wanted a certain house...SO BAD! We made an offer, then another offer. We didn't get it... And yet 18 months later, they sold it to someone else for $75,000 less than we offered them.
That experience was strange, because a year later, I was SOOOOO glad that they hadn't accepted the offer, because I found my dream house in the mean time.
In that situation, I should have just intended the perfect house for me and I wouldn't have gotten caught up in all the emotional meltdown that occured when i didn't get the house.
Wreck....talk to me more about intending. Tell me your thoughts on your own question.
How do we learn to intend specifically without it being an intention from scarcity?
Do you think once you get specific you always come from scarcity?? That it's "limiting"?
So by intending $100,000 am I limiting myself from $1,000,000?
I'll have to think about this.
(PS...am I following your train of thought?....I could be WAY OFF!)
