We all have intentions. In fact, we are intending something almost all the time. We intend to save money, lose weight or take more time off for ourselves. We intend to be less angry, watch less TV or quit smoking. These are all noble intentions but we rarely achieve them to our satisfaction. Something seems to stand in the way of our progress or progress becomes difficult and slow. Soon we give up reverting to our old way of doing things. But deep down the desire to change is always there. When there is a gap between where we want to be and where we are, there is usually pain, suffering, unhappiness or frustration. Nevertheless, we settle for less. We settle for the way life is rather than the way life can be.
