“In the beginning, there was neither existence nor non-existence, all this world was unmanifest energy…
The One breathed, without breath, by Its owns power – nothing else was there.” The Hymn of Creation, The Rig Veda
In his book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Deepak Chopra explains applicable concepts to help guide us through life in a positive and uplifting way. I have many business books in my library. The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success is always on my desk or otherwise close at hand. When I’m stumped about business, I don’t go to success manuals. I visit Chopra’s work and use it as my guide.
The Law of Pure Potentiality is explained in chapter one. Chopra says our essential nature is one of pure potentiality, infinite and unbounded, full of possibility brimming with creativity and joy.
How far most of us are from our essential nature.
We allow circumstances to control us. Instead of using the Self, or “self-referral” to be our compass, we’re controlled by the “objects of experience” included situations, people and things. In this “object referral” state we constantly seek the approval of others. We anticipate a response. We live in fear of that response. We want to control. We belief we’ll succeed only through intense struggle.
“Your TRUE self, which is your spirit, your soul, is completely free of those encumbrances. It is immune to criticism, it is unfearful of any challenge, and it feels beneath no one.”
Today, I resolve to keep my inner compass intact. I’ll keep it pointed to the things I desire most; peace, happiness, joy and the ability to think of myself not as a person but as a soul. “You are a part of the Universe. No less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, The Universe is unfolding as it should.”
Seek pure potentiality today. Drop your social mask and your fear and discover JOY.
