Will and Intention

Meister Eckhart
“Whoever would gladly receive the Body of our Lord ought not to wait until he discovers certain emotions or sensations in himself, or until his inwardness and devotion are great; but he ought to make sure he has the proper will and intention. You should not attach such importance to what you feel; rather consider it important what you love and what you intend.”
Sermons, Bernard McQuinn and Edwin Colledge, translators
Chapter 20: Counsels on Discernment
