Why it is important to "FEED" our intentions? By: Neelam Nanwani We all know about feeding the body, feeding the mind, feeding the soul. But what about feeding our intentions? This morning, I woke up and saw that a particular stone that Paul and I had picked up from Mount Shasta was dry. (The stone is a water stone picked up from beautiful Lake Siskiyou and it asked to be kept in water as a way to honor it as it). The water in which the stone was kept had evaporated. It was then that it stuck me that the stone needs to be fed daily with fresh water. This reminded me of our own life. We are the microcosm of the macrocosm. Part of the whole and the whole of the part. So what applies to a work of art from nature also applies to our own lives. Many times we have so many dreams, desires, intentions. But we just sit on them, doing nothing. We just keep thinking and thinking and thinking. We procrastinate. We come up with reasons why we cannot do it. We harbor thoughts of anxiety and fears. We remain idle, not doing anything around our intentions.
