Intention, living intentionally, intending your life, intentional communities,
being a master of one's own destiny, and self-determination

The following excerpt from THE DREAM OF BEING: aphorisms, ideograms, and aislings, by Jack Haas, metaphorically describes the essential necessity of intention in one's thoughts and actions so as to live intentionally, and have self-determination, thus being a master of one's own destiny,
                                   sowing the seeds

     You appear to yourself as if with convicted intention: you have a large basket in your hands and you are ceaselessly looking up, waiting for the fruit to fall. But really you are only delaying the inevitable. And you will starve if you continue to tolerate your hunger, for what falls to you is sparse, and fertile ground is a place within which you have never gardened.
     Gardener, you are the garden.
     An unknown seed is carried at one's warm breast great distances, only to reach arable land and find that along the way, because of that very warmth, it has sprouted, and died.
Jack Haas has been called "The Kerouac of the new millennium."(FW) He is a wilderness explorer, world traveller, and shares his time between British Columbia, Hawaii, Ireland, and India.
