Almost every evening I get lulled to sleep by the soothing voice and healing words of Deepak Chopra. His 'Soul of Healing Meditations' CD takes you through a series of lessons from relaxation to gratitude and healing.
"Every decision you make can be seen as either a conflict or a Miracle". Which one do you choose?
As infants we come into the world free of judgement and full of hope and possibility. The school of hard knocks teaches us that there are many people, places and things to be afraid of and by the time we reach adulthood, we take that learning and perceive every encounter with trepidation, resentment and fear hoping with all our might that we will be safe.
Each person moves through his or her life with only their perceptions, based on their experiences. This is why people often feel misunderstood and frustrated. We learn that giving means loss, that loving means pain and that the future is uncertain and hopeless. Before we know it, we are filled with resentment, fear and regret.
If we could learn to let go of our fear, trust that everything occurs for the best, forgive all those who malign us, take nothing personally, and know that Love is really all there is, then our perception of our life would change. Suddenly we would realize that giving fills us with joy, that another's feelings have nothing to do with us, and that there is only good and nothing to fear. Our lives would be filled with happiness and bliss.
So next time the world looks ominous and you are full of trepidation, try as hard as you can to breathe and remember, "Every decision you make is either a conflict or a Miracle. Today I choose the Miracle."
The key to peace of mind, happiness and bliss is Trust, Forgiveness, Gratitude and Love.
Every day try to make the following Commitments:
I trust in the process of Life
I let go of all bitterness and resentment and forgive all who hurt me.
I give thanks for all the people I love and who love me.
My life is perfect.
