With intention come the tools to achieve it. Without awareness of a means to achieve fulfillment, intention would be an endless unfulfillable experience.
I use tools to serve my intention to be whole. These are based on body and mind working together to achieve intended outcomes to serve the cause of need and its effect on fulfillment of this intention:
Purpose provides motivation to a cause with a specific effect.
- What specific form does my tool take? Ex: My body and my mind in its form and thought capabilities provide a means for carrying out the need of my intention.
- How do I use this tool? Ex: The actions of my body and the thoughts of my mind work to achieve specific goals for my intention.
- Why do I use this tool? Ex: My logic supports my life story.
- Who am I as a result of using this tool? Ex: My identity, symbolically represents my cause to serve.
Certitude – provides conviction to my purpose. An imagined ability to see, envision cause and effect within a scope of my direction.
- What specific form does this tool take? Ex: Generational beliefs and philosophies.
- How do I use this tool? Ex: Experience and acceptance from others.
- Why do I use this tool? Ex: My reasons based on principles and perceptions
- Who am I as a result of using this tool? Ex: relational perspective of self and use of imagination.
Predictability – provides an advantage of pattern-recognition in cause-effect relationships. Makes things possible through trust.
- What specific form does this tool take? Ex: Comparing and assigning values based on usefulness to me; relating certain types of patterns with success.
- How do I use this tool? Ex: Habitual behavior and attitudes depend on the continuous search for patterns I trust.
- Why do I use this tool? Ex: Prediction algorithms save me energy and time.
- Who am I as a result of using this tool? Ex: My ability to maintain patterned beliefs and ritual behavior symbolizes success through prejudiced predictability – a sense of rightness. Result: I feel successful, therefore, I’m validated.
Justification – provides reason and logic to a storyline that defends a perspective.
- What specific form does this tool take? Ex: If this/then that thinking creates equations from a closed perspective -> you hurt my feelings = you don’t care about me.
- How do I use this tool? Ex: I’ve created an imaginary world of reasonings designed to escape pain and convince me and others I’m right. I justify my perceptions in order to prove my intention and purpose.
- Why do I use this tool? Ex: Convincing is more important to me than the truth.
- Who am I as a result of using this tool? Ex: I take on a persona tailored to justify blocking interdependence and connection, “I’m right and you’re wrong!”
As I become aware of my intention to be whole, I apply different tools that work to fulfill the implied needs. In the process of fulfillment, I have an experience I call my life.
