The road to hell is paved with good intentions?
Well, yes and no.
In my experience, setting an intention is a way of bringing a thing into focus. When I focus on something, I am inviting it to be present with me. If I lose that focus, I lose the intention, and the presence slips away.
So, I don’t think all those intentions on the road to hell are paving stones, necessarily; I think they just fell by the wayside, and can always be retrieved.
It was my intention that this post should make sense to someone besides myself. I wonder if it does.
