.
.
Actions don’t happen only in the body; they result from an intricate interrelationship of body and mind.
.
.
Momentary impulses, springing from your contact with the myriad perceptions you encounter, shape the countless choices you make everyday.
.
.
Being mindful of intentions presents an opportunity to explore how this mind-body process works, how a thought leads into an action.
.
.
Intention is the basis of all deliberate action.
.
.
Intentions are subtle forms of thought that link a mental impulse to physical action.
.
.
As the Buddha said, “Intention, I tell you, is action.
.
.
Intending, one creates action by way of body, speech, and mind.
.
.
Some intentions will lead to happiness; others will generate suffering.
