Following is an excerpt from a samvaad (dialogue) session with Acharya Prashant.

Questioner: Sir, I see that mistakes are happening over and over again. What to do?

Acharya Prashant: When the right intent will be there in all its power then these things will not happen, because these things are not natural. These are not your inner order. These things happen only when an external agency sitting on your head powers them to happen, otherwise they cannot happen.

When it will really be your desire to not let these happen, they cannot happen. When they are happening you must know that you are supporting the happening, in a hidden way, maybe behind your own back.

Listener 1: Behind my own back? Then how can that be stopped?

AP: By not doing that.

L1: That is the intention everytime.

AP: That is the intention post the event. That is the intention after the event has happened.

L1: As I wake up in the morning, now that morning has come up I know there are things to do. The intention is in the mind.

AP: That is the intention before the event.

You have intentions before the event and after the event.
