When we say, act or do something, the act may or may not be liked by other person or people involved. But if the intentions are right, one person is sure to gain satisfaction, that is me, myself. Because ultimately I know the intention behind my action.
So no matter how good the action might be, if done with an incorrect intention, is irrelevant. In other words, doesn’t serve its purpose. For example, I gift someone a thing and make sure he or she knows how much I have spend on the gift. Do you think the whole act turned out right? According to me, either gift a person with whole and true heart, or just don’t.
So you see, even if an act might not appear right to others, but if the intention behind it was right, it ultimately turns right. Our actions may not be always approved or liked by others. But that doesn’t place us in wrong light at all. Its our mind who is the witness of our intention. A right intention definitely brings peace to one person, me. So if your heart knows that the intention is right, don’t worry. Relax.
The other side of the coin is,
that the intentions of the person in front of me matters equally. If my heart senses a wrong intention, it will alarm me. But sadly we tend to ignore this alarm sign. We are in constant need of keeping people close to us, near us. We can’t bear the thought of losing them. So we fight and ignore the alarm sign of the wrong intention. it is not going to help in the long run, for sure.
People tend to fall for small joys and pleasures ignoring the intentions behind it. We tend to nurture relationships which serve us no good, but take away the most two important things from us, time and energy. As a result, the ultimate sufferer is our soul.
Just ask yourself one question, ‘Is the motive behind this act selfless or done with a pure heart?’ If the answer is “no’, you know what to do.
Next time pay heed to the slightest of alarms so as to prevent bigger mishaps. If you find people taking advantage of you, putting you down for satisfying the fun quotient in their lives, just stay away. Energy drainers appear normal to us. But the moment we come in their circle, our mind knows. As it senses the wrong intentions instantly. There are people who have a habit of exchanging glances to the similar people like them. They mock you in such a manner, it would go unnoticed completely if you are not like them. Such people use others for mere entertainment and as a means of passing time.
Undoubtedly you must have the guts and wisdom to say ‘no’ to or stay away from such people or even things. By things I mean, there are some which drain our energy even if non intentionally. Simple solution is, stay away. It is definitely possible if we put little effort from our side. Ultimately it is to protect our energy and for self care.
Finally we know now, that the intention behind mine or of others action makes a difference. So do keep an eyeon the ‘intentions‘ of others and most importantly of your own.
