On page 332 which is blocked Tom talks about our intent and AUMs intent, that probably is useful. ... Love Bette
This might be part of the part I think you are thinking of? "Our intent (focused mental energy) specifically directs and orders a portion of that same consciousness, just as AUM's intent does - except ours is typically dim, unfocused, and of low power. Spiritual growth (developing a higher-quality, lower-entropy consciousness) provides for more brightness, capability, effective organization, and more energy to do work; in other words, more personal power."
Granted these are not "definitions
" per se, however these are the Index entries I selected for Intent:
intent p. 92 Conscious intent
is everything - space and time are not fundamental.
intent p. 154 Every individuated unit of consciousness must develop in its own unique way, powered by the free will that drives its intent
intent p. 274 Your consciousness quality rises and falls based upon the intent
that animates your everyday interactions.
intent p. 316 Motivation, intent
, action, and feedback are all interconnected. Right motivation and right intent are the only sure path to right action, which produces the right feedback to encourage continued right growth and learning.
I also used Free Will Intent from p. 308 One can learn from either right or wrong choices. PMR is designed to serve as a learning lab - a place where units of individuated consciousness (sometimes referred to as beings, entities, or souls) can grow up (improve their quality) by exercising their free will intent
within a virtual system of direct interactive experience and feedback.
... "Right" intents and choices help us improve the quality of our being, whereas "wrong" intents and choices stimulate no positive growth and may cause us to lose some previously earned quality. Absolute right and wrong (intents, motivations, choices, and actions) are defined and differentiated by the effect they have on the average entropy of the system.
and on p. 440: The creation of a conscious entity follows the same rules as the creation of any entity except conscious entities have the ability to modify themselves with free will intent.
External constraints are imposed on a subset of conscious potential energy to form an individuated consciousness that is an individual sentient entity. Additional external constraints are imposed on the interactions and perceptions of that individuated consciousness (such as through the PMR space-time rule-set) in order to create an environment that facilitates evolutionary progress. However, with the attributes of consciousness, a sentient entity can create its own internal constraints. The internal constraints that a sentient entity typically imposes upon itself will inevitably limit the evolutionary potential of that entity. Some self- imposed constraints may appear to serve a temporary purpose and some are obviously more dysfunctional (unprofitable) than others, but all must eventually be removed by the entity if it is to actualize its full potential.
