Don’t let imagined fear of the future influence the present.
Don’t let memories of the past influence the present.
Look at the universe with fresh eyes, then you will die to the known.
(Taken from the book : Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)
We are the eyes and the ears of the Universe.
The Universe looks, tastes, smells, feels and hears itself through each creature.
Allow the Universe, the Infinite, to express itself through you without interfering.
When Universal intelligence is flowing through you, without interference, your life flows with effortless ease.
This is the experience of grace.
Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
