Living with Intent: My Somewhat Messy Journey to Purpose, Peace, and Joy

LivingWithIntentBy Mallika Chopra

Harmony Books

Are you ready to move from thought to action to outcome? Mallika Chopra tells her journey of a year spent “living with intent” and shares her hope and wisdom. As the busy founder of (a website and app), author, mother and wife, she learned firsthand how overwhelming stress can be. And she developed workable strategies and actions that can help inspire, motivate, and rebalance a busy life. “The journey really is the destination — if we slow down enough to pay attention. When we slow down to notice, the universe gives us the signs we need.”

These practical suggestions include Incubate, Notice, Trust, Express, Nurture, and Take action. She states, “Intents are expressions of who we aspire to be psychically, emotionally and spiritually.” She admits she leaned this early from her father.

Included at the end of each chapter are Intent Practices such as making a balance wheel or mind map. She suggests quietly asking yourself these three questions: “Who am I? What do I want? How can I serve?” and following up by meditating on “What does the Universe want from me?”

At the end of the book, Deepak Chopra provides his own list of 10 keys to live a life of fulfillment. He agrees with his daughter and suggests that readers learn to live in the present, for it is the only moment you have.
