Intent Vs Motive
Many people believe that right action is all about our intent. Is our intent pure and good or self serving and misguided?
The definition of intent is: ‘Eager in pursuit of an object’. In other words, eager in pursuit of an effect (a thing, situation or circumstance) which implies our choice is already made but where and when does that choice ‘happen’?
Also, it is saying, “I am keen to act, to get or achieve”. “I am eager to do what I need to do to attain an effect that I think will make me feel more well, comfortable (safe) or whole”.
The definition of motive is: (noun) ‘That which incites to action; that which determines the choice or moves the will’.
Motive as an adjective is defined as, ‘causing motion; having the power to move’.
Bear in mind, a cause is the same as a motive. This is the unseen ‘power’ which incites the movement of energy (emotion - energy in motion) that travels around the loop of cause and effect or ‘the law of attraction’ where it is repeatedly re-initiated into that loop by an effect (a thing, situation or circumstance) that has just ‘affected’ us (moved our energy either closer to or further away from what we want) which by default, becomes our new ‘cause’ or motive.
Therefore, motive comes first as the ‘want’ which determines the choices we make and ‘revs’ up our will (starts the energetic movement) and intent comes later as the ‘this is how I am going to get’ it.
There are only three motives or ‘causes’ in this world - Peace, Love and Joy, even for the less humane among us…
With that understanding, if an individual or collective motive, cause or choice does not have peace, love or joy at its foundation and the belief and conditioning ‘reasons’ that the motive can be appeased with material, synthetic substitutes, then the world has a problem because the intent and action will be misguided and will manifest ‘interference’, harming the rest of humanities access to the real thing and destroying the planet in the process.
Now when we look at the corruption and manipulation within the control systems of our world, we know that the genuine motive of those behind it and indeed within it are the same as yours or mine. Unfortunately, these worldly effects merely highlight their desperation for peace, love or joy, how far away from what they want they truly are and perhaps exposes their level of human life inexperience and therefore the age of their soul…
In what other scenario would we allow newborns and infants run the world???
