“The winds of grace are blowing – it is you who must raise your sails.”
~ Rabindranath Tagore
THE POWER OF INTENTION
“You are what your deepest desire is.
As your desire is, so is your intention.
As your intention is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.”
Intention is the starting point of every spiritual path. It is the force that fulfills all of our needs, whether for money, relationships, spiritual awakening, or love. Intention generates all the activities in the universe. Everything that we can see – and even the things we cannot – are an expression of intention’s infinite organizing power.
As the ancient Indian sages observed thousands of years ago, our destiny is shaped by the deepest level of our intention and desire. Once we plant the seed of an intention in the fertile ground of pure potentiality, our soul’s journey unfolds automatically, as naturally as a bulb becomes a tulip or an embryo becomes a child. With this issue of Namasté, we invite you to explore the power of intention and harness it for deeper fulfillment.
XPRESSPA LANDS AT JFK AND LAGUARDIA
XpresSpa announces the opening of its 8th spa at JFK and 1st spa at LGA
XpresSpa opened its newest spa and wellness center today in JetBlue Airways Terminal 5, John F. Kennedy International Airport. “We are excited about JetBlue’s beautiful, innovative and traveler-friendly terminal and thrilled that we were ready to open our doors and begin treating customers when JetBlue Terminal 5 opened for business at 6 am this morning,” said Marisol Binn, President and co-founder of XpresSpa. JFK is not only one of the United States’ largest international gateways; it also has become the “Spa Capital” with more spas (8 XpresSpa locations) than any other airport in the world.
Just two days earlier, on October 20th, XpresSpa opened its first spa at New York LaGuardia International Airport in US Airways Shuttle Terminal. “With The price of fuel skyrocketing, new Charges for checking bags and fewer planes flying each day, air travel is an increasingly challenging experience.
