The Power of Intentionby Wayne W Dyer
Synopses & Reviews
Intention is generally viewed as a pit-bull kind of determination propelling one to succeed at all costs by never giving up on an inner picture. In this view, an attitude that combines hard work with an indefatigable drive toward excellence is the way to succeed. However, intention is viewed very differently in this book.
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has researched intention as a force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. This book explores intention — not as something you do — but as an energy you're a part of. We're all intended here through the invisible power of intention. This is the first book to look at intention as a field of energy that you can access to begin co-creating your life with the power of intention.
Part I deals with the principles of intention, offering true stories and examples on ways to make the connection. Dr. Dyer identifies the attributes of the all-creating universal mind of intention as creative, kind, loving, beautiful, expanding, endlessly abundant, and receptive, explaining the importance of emulating this source of creativity. In Part II, Dr. Dyer offers an intention guide with specific ways to apply the co-creating principles in daily life. Part III is an exhilarating description of Dr. Dyer's vision of a world in harmony with the universal mind of intention.
"Dyer's soothing voice and gentle prescriptions for happiness remain uniquely his own." Publishers Weekly
Intention is viewed very differently in this book, as Dyer has researched intention as a force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. This book explores intention--not as something one does--but as an energy one is a part of.
