    You were intended out of love

    Hello alls,

    "You were intended out of love, you must be love in order to intend."

    I read the above statement from Dr. Wayne Dyer's book but not really sure if I understand it correctly. Can anyone help me explain it, pls.

    One more thing, what is the rubber hose which is supposed to be used to take out angle on a phone book? I thought the rubber hose is the one we used to convey the water. What is it supposed to do with the phone book? Pls help.

    Thank you,

    Re: You were intended out of love

    It's a funny usage. Can you give a bit more context? It sounds as if he means that the person is the result of an intention that comes from love (presumably the love of the parents and their intention to have a child)

    Re: You were intended out of love

    I just found the article about this story. And I think I now understand what Dr. Wayne Dyer would like to convey. See below.

    "I do what I love, and I love what I do. I think we all were intended out of a field of energy called love, so you must be love in order to intend."



    Anyway, I still don't understand what the "rubber hose" is supposed to be used to take out angle on a phone book, anyone can explain?? Tks.

    We're not random beings, but the result of a force of love, that has an intention. I have no idea about the rubber hose- it's nothing standard.
