Actually, I have several intentions that focus on the here and now. These are what's requiring the house cleaning. Most are focused on character - being a certain type of person. And, as I see myself being that person I desire to be in the here and now, there are many things I've previously brought into my life that are now incongruent. Thus, I'm letting go and moving on.
I don't want to say the choices are hard, but they haven't been easy. It's the type of thing where you know you need to do something, but you really don't want to. As soon as you make the decision and take that first step to commit to the decision, you feel the burden lift.
Past problems have been the result of a serious case of the "I wants," with the grass always being greener, etc, etc, etc. This was caused by lack of thankfulness, temperance, and diligence. I am now thankful, I'm exercising temperance, and practicing diligence every day.
There are many choices I can now make, each pointing me in a different direction. I'm not anxious about anything, because I feel I'm doing what I need to do, but I am still deep in the learning curve. I'm still having trouble deciphering the wants from the true desires.
To use the previous example. Let's say I had my house in the mountains, my house by the ocean, my house in the metropolis, and maybe a few others. However, they were attained without harmony. Finding myself nearly bankrupt, I start selling the houses and paying off debt. I start with the houses that I recognize as not being true desires, but acquisitions of lack and scarcity. I sell them, feel the burden gone and am at peace with the decision. Now I'm down to the final few. Do I focus my intention on generating the income to keep them? Do I sell them all but one? If so, which one do I keep? Or do I sell them all and travel for a while?
