"Everything I Desire Is Within Me" - Centering Thought for the Day

Saturday, November 10, 2012

That is Deepak Chopra's meditation for today. . .

and here is the rest of what he has to say that I find so important because we have a tendency, or I do, to compare how we are doing weightwise with others on Spark. This will free you!

"Today we will consider what success is and where it is found. It's common sometimes to measure our success or fulfillment by comparing ourselves to others. This is called object-referral, looking outside for validation.

"It is also common to overlook the opportunities for success that exist in our setbacks or failures.

"Through meditation we learn that everything we want, need and desire is already within us and that the seeds of success are within every perceived setback. Self-referral, looking within, is where true fulfillment resides."

    That is so true, and most of the world is guilty of comparing ourselves to others. Thanks for the reminder!

    As we do come to understand, no one can do this journey for us! Each of us has to make the journey in our own way and time.
Have a personally successful day!
