How often do you wonder what is true? We are bombarded with information, disinformation, opinion pretending to be news and entertainment feigning real life, 24/7. This plays on our feelings of insecurity and keeps us confused.
A brief search on three issues that came to mind, delivered completely different information:

Intent is not a thought, or an object, or a wish. Intent is what can make a man succeed when his thoughts tell him that he is defeated…… Intent is what sends a shaman through a wall, through space, to infinity.
In The Power of Silence Don Juan explains how “intent is beckoned with the eyes” by moving to the “place of no pity” which is characterised by a specific shine to the eyes. The “place of no pity” is Don Juan’s way of describing the point where you get over your self-importance and are fully present, without mental chatter. The power is in the silence.
The ‘shiny eyes’ is like being ‘moved to tears’ in the presence of great love or beauty, humbled, fully present and self-less. To bring yourself to that state and then focus the attention is to act with intent.
You need to be sufficiently connected to the issue in order to invoke this level of intent and to be clear and specific as to how you direct your intent. For example, asking for the Truth about whether it is safe to eat Pacific fish is too abstract for the body to understand. However, if you are standing at the fish counter with fish from the Pacific right there in front of you, you will be able to connect with intent and discover the Truth about the fish. The Truth that it is safe would feel strong and certain, without any doubt. In this context, what is true for you might not be true for some one else. If your body truly finds the fish safe, it will be for you – if you have any doubt, there is no Truth.
In the words of Schoepenhouer:
All truth goes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Then it is violently opposed. Finally it is accepted as self-evident.
