Right Intent Held Key
To Finding Distortions
In Thinking and Action
In pointing out that "Right
Intent" is the key to correct
use of Humanetics, we might
add that we have a sneaking
suspicion that this ingredient
(Right Intent) is also the key
to life itself. Consciously or
unconsciously, we ARE what we
intend to be -- and we change
only as our intent changes.

LILL AND comprehensive use of Humanetics has not yet been gained. There
are those who have made dramatic
changes in their lives, but no one
solves every problem as it arises
in his life, nor is there anyone
who is entirely free of problems.

It becomes clear that now is the time
to point up and clarify the one ingredient that will allow full use of Humanetics. The ingredient has been discussed in
Humanetics lectures and literature, but
as yet, the working knowledge has been
blocked by unconscious resistance.

The precise ingredient which changes
Humanetics into a miraculous problemsolving technique is right intent.

Right intent will be defined several
ways to allow for complete understanding
of what is meant by the term. Very simply,
'" right intent is the desire to do right.

In the struggle between right and
wrong, wrong action is taken only after a
series of rationalizations has allowed
f the individual to convince himself that
the wrong is not really wrong but right.
Once distortions are installed, this simple definition is not enough to destroy
wrong intent because now the wrong intent
is hidden from view.

Right intent can be defined as the
surrender of the individual's will to the
will of God or to the divine plan or to
universal law or however you may express
the source of all truth.

There are many who feel they have made
w this surrender who are, in fact, deluded.
od A distortion is a subconscious delusion,
a so it is obvious that no one is able to
w surrender in areas where distortions deal lude him. Who has freed himself from distortions? About the best we can do is to
have the conscious desire to surrender
w our will, and this enables us to learn
.4 about some of our subconscious wrong in-' tent.

Right intent can be defined as the desire to be right because it is right to
be right.
11 We do not solve our problems by attackMARIE BOTHE
ing them directly. Rather the solution
comes when we can determine exactly how
we are wrong in relation to our problems.
Correcting that wrongness eliminates the
problem. Trying to solve the problem focuses our thinking in an area where thinking is subconsciously distorted. The intent to be right gives us the co-operation of all the natural laws.

Right intent also can be defined as
willingness to get rid of selfish motives.

The person who wants to correct distortions so he can resolve his health may
not at first be aware that this is a
selfish motive. The person who wants to
be right for the benefits gained still
has a wrong motive. Even the desire to
help others can be rooted in selfishness
so subtle to almost escape detection.

It is common knowledge these days that
people have more than one reason for what
they do. They have one reason they tell
others, one reason they tell themselves,
and the real reason. For those of us who
use Humanetics, it is no surprise to learn
that we do not know our real reasons.
They are the reasons contained in our
distortions of logic. One of the important functions of Humanetics.is to make us
aware that we have subconscious wrong
reasons so we can release them.

One direct way of dealing with subconscious wrong intent is to make a list
of your motives on the left side of a
sheet of paper. On the opposite right
side of the paper make a corresponding
list of the subconscious, ulterior motives. They will be shocking. But if you
persist and bring them all to conscious
