Putting Action into Intention


A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose (Oprah's Book Club, Selection 61)So far I've written 9 hubs, that means I have 91 hubs to go (YIKES!).  Despite the long road ahead, I am actually enjoying this. I am forced to write each and everyday, which is what I have to do in order to call myself a "writer."  Even more than that, I am learning a ton of stuff!  When you write an article, odds are there will be things that you don't know, so in researching, you're bound to walk away with a brand new nugget of information. 

This morning I wrote a hub titled "The Link Between Hypothyroidism and Iodine."  I had a bit of knowledge about the thyroid and how it works and I heard a snippet about iodine on a radio program a while back, but I didn't realize how the two worked together until today. Interestingly enough, on my way to work this morning I was riding alongside a truck that was carrying a load of Morton's Ionized Salt...how karmic is that? LOL  I am a firm believer that nothing ever happens by chance, if I had not wrote that hub this morning, I may not have even paid attention to the load of salt that was chugging down the highway, but that is not what is significant.  The real point I'm trying to make is, I was "present" on my drive to work this morning because of what I wrote.  In essence, writing is helping me to live more in the moment.

A few years ago I purchased "A New Earth" by Eckart Tolle, but I only read a few pages.  As a result of my experience today, I think I'll have to revisit it.  Life happens on purpose...no accidents...just intention.  I am finally putting action into my intention...I suggest you do the same.

I definitely find that the more I write, the more intentionally I think. Similarly, the more I photograph, the more beauty I see :)

Funny, I read about 1/3rd - 2/3rds of Tolle's book and enjoyed it, but then stopped reading. Finishing this book is on my to-do list.

Following from VB! Thanks for following me too!

I love reading comments, almost as much as I love reading books!
