Intentionality as it relates to philosophy of mind, allows you to create your own reality. It begins with mindfulness, awareness. One must examine underlying thoughts and beliefs to better understand ourselves. Our thoughts are a result of our own values and beliefs, which often must be changed if you are to change your reality. In order to understand your intention you must examine your beliefs. Many of us have beliefs from our childhood which have remained with us. Unfortunately these are not the tools required to survive in an adult world.
Instead of looking to find ourselves, we build who we are.
Without the proper tools, your final result is likely to contain shoddy workmanship. By operating on yesterday’s beliefs you may find yourself coming up against that brick wall, time and time again. Thinking patterns are deeply ingrained. If you can change your thinking & your behaviour, then other things in your life can change. Taking the same approach you’ve always taken to solving problems, will yield the same results.
