Never give up ... your journey started long before you realise.
Once you build on the "feeling" and the "knowing" then your "intentions" will become more powerful and quicker, because its at a pivotal point that you realise that you no longer "need" your desires, then they come.
As Tolle says we are all part of something greater ... try and bypass your conscious mind and go to your deeper "self". All the answers in "your" world live there, waiting for you ....
