"The purpose of this meditation is for your mind to learn how to temporarily turn off the intention to change itself."

But that's itself an intention. This sounds like an exercise in the impossible, like focusing on not thinking about the word "rhinoceros."

Did you listen to the video?

It's got a discussion of the difference between shutting off the intention yourself-- which would require an intention and be self-contradictory-- and setting up conditions in which a change occurs without you deliberately making it happen.
