Memories

 (Taken from the book: Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

Memory gives us a sense of continuity.

Use memories, but do not allow memories to use you.

When we use memories, we are creators.

But when our memories use us, we become victims.

Be a witness of your thought

 (Taken from the book: Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

Be a witness of your thought, of your moods, of your reactions, and of your behavior. They represent your memories from the past.

By witnessing your thought in the present, you liberate yourself of the past.

When you observe your conditioning, you are the observer of your conditioning.

It’s already a dream

 (Taken from the book: Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

Before you fo to sleep, witness the whole day and tell yourself: It’s already a dream. It is gone”

Observe what happened to you today:

  • don’t analyze it
  • don’t evaluate it
  • don’t judge it

Just witness the day and say, “It’s gone!” , “Just as I witnessed the day, I am going to witness my dreams”

Then wake up in the morning and remember your dreams and say = It’s gone.

Surrender to this moment

 (Taken from the book: Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

Difficult situations don’t create suffering; resistance to what is creates suffering.

When you experience resistance, your unconscious mind is perceiving a situation as intolerable.

Separate the situation from this moment, and surrender to the moment. Join the flow of life. The situation may be intolerable, but this moment is still perfect.

To surrender and do whatever the situation demands, you are establishing in BEING while performing the action.

When you surrender to this moment, you act from the level of your soul. When you act from the level of your soul, you act like a true spiritual warrior: without anger, without self-righteousness, without resentment, without grievousness. You act without being compulsively driven by a memory of resentment or being wronged.

If you flow with the moment, your will becomes aligned with the will of the one BEING.

Act moment by moment as the detached silent witness, then you will act with spontaneous right action, with timing and finesse.

When you live in the moment, you live from the source. If your attention is in the moment, if you pay attention to what is, then you see the fullness in every moment.

NOW is the door to eternity. In every moment, the door is open to the source. The source has never left you.

All life is an experiment – Ralp Waldo Emerson

“Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions.

All life is an experiment.

The more experiments you make the better.

What if they are a little coarse and you may get your coat soiled or torn?

What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice?

Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble”

Intuition

 (Taken from the book: Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

I love the way Deepak Chopra describes the meaning of Intuition in his book Power, Freedom and Grace.

He says that intuition is not a thought. It is a non-local cosmic field of information that whispers to you in the silence between your thoughts. Listen to the inner intelligence of your body. It is the ultimate and supreme genius.

You are accessing information from the universe when you listen to your intuition.

Intuition is the heightened sense of awareness that comes from familiarity with the information fields in your own body. This information is encoded holographically in every cell of your body.

Access this information and you will become more intuitive.

Meditation

I am a very busy person and find it hard to meditate. I know it has many good benefits for me. but the moment I start meditating all sorts of unnecessary stuff enters my mind diverting me from my meditation routine. I cannot become still for long enough.

My new year’s resolution is to try and meditate if only for 5 minutes at a time, then longer, and even longer until I can reach my goal of about 1 hour. To meditate is good for our body and soul and here are some benefits:

  • it improves our physical and emotional health
  • it helps lower our blood pressure
  • we have greater resistance to disease
  • we are less stressful to challenging situations
  • we have better work performance
  • we have greater self-esteem
  • we have more nourishing relationships

Let us all try and make meditation part of our daily routine, like eating and sleeping. I am going to try my best.

Namaste.

Conscious Awareness

When you have a conscious awareness of your soul, you experience everything as a miracle.

You feel happy.

Your life begins to transform.

You see the connection between your inner world and your outer world.

Every event in your life is being orchestrated by the entire Universe.

I Am, I Exist

The Universe is thinking

It’s creative,

It imagines

I am creative because the Universe is creative

I am conscious because the Universe is conscious

I think because the Universe thinks

I Am, I Exist.
