YOU are RESPONSIBLE for every word you put in the public domain ~ I challenge you to make your words uplifting ~ think about how your words influence other people.
Don’t take anything personally – Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
easier said than done?…….
Trust that: Happiness is commensurate with the amount of UNCERTAINTY you can take
Controlling behavior often leads to disaster, so instead of trying to control; LET IT GO and follow The Law of Detachment
Have you ever tried to control some one or something? ~ How did that work out for you?
“If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours; if they don’t they never were.” ~ Richard Bach
When you have come to the edge of all the light you have
And step into the darkness of the unknown
Believe that one of the two will happen to you
Either you’ll find something solid to stand on
Or you’ll be taught how to fly!”
6) The Law of Detachment
This law says that in order to acquire anything in the physical universe, you have to relinquish your attachment to it. This doesn’t mean you give up the intention to create your desire. You give up your attachment to the result. This is a very powerful thing to do. The moment you relinquish your attachment to the result, combining one-pointed intention with detachment at the same time, you will have that which you desire. Anything you want can be acquired through detachment, because detachment is based on the unquestioning belief in the power of your true Self. Attachment comes from poverty consciousness, because attachment is always to symbols. Detachment is synonymous with wealth consciousness, because with detachment there is freedom to create. True wealth consciousness is the ability to have anything you want, anytime you want, and with least effort. To be grounded in this experience you have to be grounded in the wisdom of uncertainty. In this uncertainty you will find the freedom to create anything you want.
Many of us grew up with the belief that achieving success requires relentless hard work, grim determination and intense ambition. As a result, we may have struggled for years and even reached some of our goals but wound up feeling exhausted, our lives out of balance. As Deepak Chopra observes in his transformational work The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, such desperate striving isn’t necessary or even desirable. In the natural world, creation comes forth with ease. A seed doesn’t struggle to become a tree―it simply unfolds in grace.
The Seven Spiritual Laws are powerful principles you can use to fulfill your deepest desires with effortless joy. If you put them into practice, you’ll realize that you can manifest whatever you’ve been dreaming about.
“In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.” ~ Deepak Chopra

Forgive And Let Go
Find one thing every day to forgive the other person for. Don’t let them know what it is; just forgive them, and let it go. ~ Deepak Chopra
What you resist persists.
Whenever you are experiencing discontentment or unhappiness, there is something you are resisting.
All suffering is caused by non-acceptance of what is.
It may be a thought, a feeling, an emotion or a situation.
You suffer when you want things to be different from how they are.
What you resist persists.
Often, it is NOT the experience itself that creates pain and suffering, rather the resistance TO the experience.
Human beings are ‘meaning making’ – How you label the experience (what you make it mean) determines how you feel.
Resistance is about believing that you are vulnerable or susceptible to something not wanted and holding a stance of protection — which only holds you in a place of not letting in the Well-being that would be there otherwise. There is nothing big enough to protect you from unwanted things, and there are no unwanted things big enough to get into your experience.
We are deeply conditioned from a young age to categorize our experiences into good and bad, right and wrong, desirable and undesirable.
For example if you are feeling down…The mind will subconsciously label it as “bad.”
The subconscious is the part of your mind that notices and remembers information when you are not actively trying to do so, and influences your behaviour even though you do not realise it:
If you get rid of the label “bad” you are left with simply a feeling…. it may be uncomfortable but it is not a problem.
There is nothing “wrong” … unless the mind (your meaning/interpretation) says so.
Through habit, the mind will also latch onto something as the cause of the feeling…. for example: shame from past memories, blaming others, looking for fault can kick in.
Who knows what the real reason is?
Often feelings of being flat or down have absolutely nothing to do with us.
You could be picking up on the earthquake in Indonesia, or an upsetting story on the TV news or your neighbours having an argument.
Conscious people experience the exact same feelings as everyone else. The difference is the recognition that:
- There is nothing wrong with whatever feeling is there.
- It is not personal… feelings simply appear by themselves.
- All feelings come and go so why bother about whatever shows up in this particular moment..
Resisting nothing is the real secret to finding inner peace.
Viewing your world in this way could allow an experience of continuous contentment, regardless of what you are experiencing.
In fact, if you can truly say YES! to EVERY experience there is no possibility of ever suffering.
Now, when you feel down, the commentary may be “Wow! This is interesting!” You feel sad but there is no problem.
Let go, let God
“What you resist persists.” The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like.
Through resisting our experiences, we draw more of the same to ourselves.
Through focusing on what you don’t want, you attract more of it.
A far better (and infinitely more peaceful) approach is to consciously offer no resistance.
Simply acknowledge what is there, allow it to be there and know there is nothing “wrong” with it.
Be aware of any commentary about the experience. There is no need to fix or change anything. Wanting to fix it will create more of it.
Simply seeing it is enough. Then see what happens!
If it is true that what you resist persists, the opposite is equally true… what you embrace dissolves.
Negative states persist because we give them energy and importance by focusing on them.
When we offer no resistance, they wither and fade away. And, even if they do remain, so what!
