Positive and Negative Intentions: The Korwa Clock The Korwa Clock is an important tool for understanding the effects of good and bad intentions, as well as a powerful tool for attacking bad intentions. Korwa is a Tibetan word meaning “cycle.” An intention goes through a four-phase cycle represented by the numbers on the clock. At 3:00 (Motivation Stage), intentions are formulated; at 6:00 (Action Stage), action is taken on intentions; at 9:00, the consequences of action taken on one’s intentions start to develop and unfold (Maturation Stage); and at 12:00(Results Stage), one’s intentions are fully realized. Of course, the results of one’s intention may be very different from what one expected. At 9:00 and 12:00, the results of one’s actions are inevitable. Another metaphor used for the four-phase cycle is the planting cycle. At 6:00, seeds are planted; at 9:00, the seeds sprout, mature, and are nourished. At 12:00, the plant is in full bloom and bears fruit. It may be better to plant new positive seeds than to try to pull out mature plants that have sprouted from bad seeds. It is better to try to weed out bad seeds at the Motivation stage by periodic reflection every day on how one is living out the Eightfold Path. For example, to counteract anger one must plant seeds of compassion. Think of your life like a garden. What types of plants are coming up: flower or weeds. Are you spending a lot of time pulling up mature weeds, ones that should have been pulled up when you first saw them? Are you watering the seeds of success or are you letting them languish?
h a profound dislocation elicits different responses in different workers. Some individuals will respond by trying to find another job in their own or closely allied field. There is comfort and security in pursuing a familiar course of action. However, we need to realize that by working in the field, we are committing ourselves to repeat the same Korwa cycle that lead to our unemployment in the first place. We will continue to experience the negative feelings of alienation, powerlessness, and fear. However, if you instead try to plant a good seed in response to the event, for example, looking into a different career, the Korwa clock will work in your favor and will, in many cases, result in an exponential increase in your prosperity.
. Look for and be aware of the long-term consequences of the seeds you plant. This is the only way that you will attain prosperity in the coming age. .
