What’s driving me?

illusion

When disagreements happen, let me stop and check why I am fighting the fight – what is in it for me?

On the surface it may be a simple reason of proving the truth, wanting the right things to happen or even standing up for someone.
If I check deeper, at the more subtle things that drive me then I am likely to find something revealing about myself. What really is my motive, what is my intention?

Buried deep below the surface I will come to discover that this is where my ego looms – the need to be respected and counted, or maybe the need to be in control or something else.

When I can name the intent and motive very clearly it will lose its power. The realisation that I have will be enough to dis-empower it. Then the disagreement and fight will seem trivial and not worth the fight.

What is my intention and motive …do I really know?

 

Om Shanti

Motivation or Intention

reasons

Behind motivation is always a reason – a goal. That goal then becomes the drive to do something – the motivation.

Intention on the other hand is a much deeper and more subtle character. It is based on deep feelings within the heart – good or bad feelings alike. Those feelings then become the drive behind our goals and aspirations.

So what, I hear you ask…

It is far easier to see our motivations but to see our intentions requires us to dig deeper within the self.

I wish to win the race is my motivation. If I fail then my drive dissipates, my hope and self belief start to falter.
Of course I wish to win the race, but if my intention is to prove I am capable, then win or lose I will not have lost the drive behind the action – the self respect and the will to carry on.

Am I driven by motivation or intention?

 

Om Shanti
