Ask Grand Master Lu: Setting a True Intention

The end of a calendar year is a chance for us to reflect and set resolutions for the coming year. But many resolutions tend to be superficial—lose weight, get healthy, etc.—and follow-through doesn’t always happen past the first month or two. So, instead, shift your mindset, and set an intention that can help you achieve your resolutions and be successful throughout all of 2023.

Question:  How do I set my intention? How do I identify what is my true intention?

Answer: Your intention is based on your belief. Everyone is at a different level. You will choose an intention based on what you believe and what you want to achieve. Your belief far surpasses what your rational mind can conceive.

So ask yourself, “What do I deserve?” Don’t discount yourself. If you want to have amazing results, you must think much larger than your personal goal.

My Master used to tell this story. He’d say, “Look at the fly. How big is it? The fly is so tiny. When we use a fly swatter that is 100 times bigger than the fly, why are we still missing it?”

The goal has to be hundreds or thousands of times bigger than your personal goal so you can hit it! You have to imagine the true intention being so great. Everything is possible as long as you meet the requirement. The first requirement is your belief.

You have so many tools at your disposal; you have everything and every possibility. Setting your true intention is a way to give yourself a jump start and a natural way to change by connecting your practice to Nature. So think big, and then, think bigger! Base your goal on the deep knowing that you are deserving and you will achieve what you set for yourself.

Take this opportunity!
