“Our repeated failure to fully act as we would wish must not discourage us. It is the sincere intention that is the essential thing, and this will in time release us from the bondage of habits which at present seem almost insuperable.”
Mr Troward was an English author whose works influenced the New Thought Movement and mystic Christianity. He lived between 1847 and 1910 and was British Assistant Commissioner and judge in India in 1869.
I like the way in which this statement focuses on the sincerity of the intention to work with the ego-based emotions. Awareness, and ego don’t co-exist. It allows re-alignment with Source, space to contemplate what we don’t want, look at the beliefs still holding us prisoners and to the doubts still keeping us from changing from chrysalis to butterfly.
Assume that you will fly!
