What does your intention look like, re the BP oil gusher in the Gulf of Mexico? Is it hand-wringing despair over the consequences of the worst ever human-induced environmental disaster? Or is it compassion for the creatures great and small directly affected by the toxic mess, and a sincere wish for the healing of their home, their ocean? Some feel that the energy of many intentions, focused in prayer for the healing of the Gulf ecosystem, can produce a positive effect. All it takes is to step outside of our normal self-focused lives long enough to devote a few minutes of un-distracted, positive loving energy towards the Gulf, the creatures who dwell there, down to the smallest of them, down to the individual cell, down to the individual water molecule. Focus there, find peace there, send powerful loving energy there. Miracles may happen!
