What part of this is not clear?
How is there a disconnect between our intentions here as opposed to our Intent deeper in the LCS? Surely there must be some connection, some knowable feedback here in PMR, otherwise your stated explanation is absurd.
Good intentions imply caring. If I care then I respect an IUOC's freewill and will try to avoid minimizing their decision space, therefore my interactions are essentially my 'gauge' of whether I'm doing it right, as you say Ted, but in the next sentence you contradict yourself saying we do not have access to our real Intent and therefore cannot know it.
So, there is much here that is not clear. What is the relationship between intent and capital I, 'Intent', which I see you writing about in other threads? You seem to describe a connection here and yet you also deny that there is.
I also object to the idea that our interactions here is what it's all about really. "It" meaning life in PMR. How we relate to others is one important interest while we're here but there are others. I think well-being here is naturally of interest, as is our pursuits. Well-being and pursuits are primary focuses here in PMR and we interact with people along the way. I think it's all important.
Ted will shut down on you if you start getting rude with him, and if you persist, he will as administrator justifiably lock you out of the forum - I am just relating facts to you here, not judging or scolding
"Your stated explanation is absurd" appears to me
to be disrespectful and gratuitously argumentative, and I am confused
regarding why such an evolved being such as yourself
(Campellian biscuit maneuver) would communicate in this way ; - )
control your emotional frustration response and craft firm but logical challenges and questions - that's the price
in this pay to play environment
a better phrasing would be "your stated explanation appears
to be absurd to me, I am confused
has anyone showed you how to search on the online Trilogy? do a search on intent and start with that. Has anyone showed you how to search on Tom's postings in this forum? He leans into Intent there. Never rely on second hand information and interpretation when you have the source teaching available.
put simply, Intent is the active element of QoC, according to my interpretation
Like, QoC is your investment portfolio, and Intent is what you are going to do with it, the general goal at the IUOC level, which you will be largely unaware of at the concious FWAU level.
Your IUOC is sending you subconcious smoke signals in this regard, and nudging your decision making, at each little intent fork in the road at the game level, and meditation is picking up the phone and calling your IUOC to have a more direct communication, which is something felt, rather than being a thing of thought.
oal->decision->action->result->feedback->incremental QoC change->Intent...and so on
like right now, there are dishes on the counter - you have a choice - yammer some more with your forum buddies, or load the dishwasher (a mundane act of love for your housemate/girlfriend/mom, whatever)
now that's at the mental level...there will likely be a situation of significance in your life, with a binary choice, and your material self interest may conflict with what your QoC wants to do, through this smoke signal thingy...
you have the free will to choose...a big part of MBTOE is becoming aware of this process of facing forks in the road, and increasingly facing these forks with greater thought and intent, and listening for the smoke signals, and picking up the phone - deal or no deal
