(In)tention

Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen Hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is-

What is the one word that is often most overused and the least understood practicing yoga – anything? Intention.

Setting an intention is a mentality that demands, demands that we live in a way that prompts an “As if…” approach to living. Rather than the convenient “What if…” approach to living.

Being mindful, centers on being in the moment, putting aside attachments to past and our unrelenting attachment to the future. Setting an intention is akin to living backwards in time. Intention suggests that we envision a reality and begin living in that reality, immediately, like right now! Rather than waiting for “intention” to magically happen to us, or for us.
