I was intrigued by this book and decided it was my next adventure.
This easy to read book was written by a woman no different than you and I in respect of everyday responsibilities and busyness of life. Being the daughter of Deepak Chopra Certainly was an advantage to understanding how to live with intent and meditation much more so than what was presented to me in my childhood. And just as my children have skills that were inherited from me in the lifestyle they were raised, my grandchildren clearly have their own. I am intrigued by the simplicity of ‘living with intent’ and it seems to boil down simply to looking at the big picture, discovering what you want and work towards that end whether it be life goals, career, diet or a new hobby. Mallika of shares how to focus on your needs and wants and like a bull’s eye aim for the goal, while making the appropriate changes, or taking the appropriate action needed to accomplish what you must in order to achieve those goals. Personally, I tend to be scattered and paying attention to her words did help me to focus, slow down and get just as much accomplished as when I was going full speed ahead. Her ‘cheat sheet’ at the back of the book simplified the whole process. In order: you begin logically with incubating your intentions, noticing your thoughts and actions, trusting your ‘inner knowing’, expressing your intentions, nurturing yourself as you move on the journey no matter what happens and finally, take the action steps needed to accomplish your intent. Simple. Every busy person in particular, would benefit from this book. I received this book from Harmony Books and the opinion is my own.
