Intentionality. What is this? How it achieved? How do we know it has been achieved?
Intentionality happens on reflection. Life is just what it is. Some intentional, so not so much. Grey Thinking. A continuum of intentionality. The desire for a specific outcome. This is a good thing to shoot for but a bad thing to expect. Set sights for the stars and be happy with the moon or low earth orbit.
Thinking about being intentional and how I'm governed by "hidden layers", layers of unconscious stuff that is the source of my actions. This makes the idea of intentionality sticky. Maybe it is a subtle way that sometimes one can in a small way influence the "hidden layers". Point activity in a direction and watch the universe fill in the details. Be open to what happens and adjust.
