Feel overwhelmed by the world’s chaos? People have been feeling that way for more than 2,000 years…check out what Deepak suggests may help…
A former Chief of Staff at the New England Memorial Hospital, in 1994 Deepak Chopra founded the Chopra Center for Wellbeing. He believes that combining principles from Ayurveda (Hindu traditional medicine) and mainstream medicine, allows a healthy mind-body relationship that “consciousness creates reality” and believes that can extend the human lifespan and treat chronic disease. He’s written over 80 books (so far) and is dedicating his life to improving health and well being, cultivating spiritual knowledge, expanding consciousness, and promoting world peace to all members of the human family.
In his newest book, The Future of God, Deepak invites us on a journey of the spirit, providing a practical path to understanding God and our own place in the universe. He proposes that God lies at the source of human awareness, therefore, any person can find the God within that transforms everyday life.
In the book, he suggests we all need constant course correction, just as even Jesus’ followers did. “The obstacles that we face test our faith and tease us with hope that soon fades. Nonalignment has been a way of life for generations.”
He goes on to say these obstacles are poison are Ignorance, Egoism, Attachment, Averson and Fear of death, but once you extract the first poison–forgetting who you are–the chain reaction stops.
Yet how do we detach from materialism when people everywhere are rapid consumers of material goods? “Modern people yearn for some kind of inner transformation because there is a hole inside them where God used to be.” One suggestion is practicing stillness and going within. When is the last time you sat and tried to find a core of silence, setting aside the hectic pace and distractions of modern life? Are you willing to try and give it a first step?
So Manifestors…Perhaps you can carve our five minutes in the morning and five minutes before going to bed to just “be” in silence. See if you can work your way up to 10 minutes, then 20, until you can get to an hour each day. You may be amazed at the peace it may bring to your soul, in spite of the hectic world around you.
Perhaps it will even allow God to listen to YOU if you begin to listen to HIM.
