Intention, Action, Impact

Intentions, intentions, intentions. Don’t we think we always act out of good intentions? 

“With mere good intentions hell is proverbially paved.” ~ William James

But having good intentions simply isn’t enough. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. 

We are judged by others not by our intentions, no matter how noble they might be, but by our actions and the impact of our actions.

Intention and action are equally important and inseparable partners in the dance of manifestation. Without action, intention remains a latent potential.  And without appropriate action, the impact is seldom as intended.

Let your intentions be pure and clear, your actions deliberate and appropriate, and the world gains from the impact of your existence.

“When your intention is clear, so is the way.” ~ Alan Cohen
