What is more important? Intentions, or outcomes? Jesus would say you judge a tree by the fruit it bears. While Intentions are generally important in
garnering a specific outcome, some prefer the route of lack of intent.
Intentions can cause problems. While intent can be important at garnering a specific outcome... I think the question is not about whether or not there
is good intent, but how effective someone is at bringing that intent into reality.
Also the question brings into mind things such as having good intent, but a ridiculously terrible belief system that isn't in line with reality that
results in your intentions screwing people over because you have a misguided view of cause-and-effect, and then yelling at people because they aren't
following your ideals, or blaming others because of your own misinterpretation of reality. This all basically results in a bad sex life and
A Taoist? No intentions, good results. And bad results as a Taoist would mean that you need to increase your awareness of your surroundings and your
ability to make the correct decisions for the situation at hand, so it isn't like there isn't improvement to be made there.
