One of my fav books by Deepok Chopra, The seven Spiritual Laws of Success
It lifts me up when I am low.
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by deepok Chopra is one of my all time favorite reads for many reasons, one of which is its short and easy to read. Another is it makes good sense.
There are many aspects to success; material wealth is only one component. Moreover, success is a journey, not a destination. Material abundance, in all its expressions, happens to be one of those things that makes the journey more enjoyable. But success also includes good health, energy and enthusiasm for life, fulfilling relationships, creative freedom, emotional and psychological stability, a sense of well-being and peace of mind. Even with the experience of all these things, we will remain unfulfilled unless we nurture the seeds of divinity inside us. In reality, we are divinity in disguise, and the gods and goddesses in embryo that are contained within us seek to be fully materialized. Although I call the laws I’m about to discuss The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, they could easily be called The Seven Spiritual Laws of Life. This is because they are the same principles that nature uses to create everything in material existence–everything we can see, hear, smell, taste or touch.
Success in life could be defined as the continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals. Success is the ability to fulfill your desires with effortless ease. And yet success, including the creation of wealth, has always been considered a process that requires hard work, and it is often considered to be at the expense of others. We need a more spiritual approach to success and to affluence, which is the abundant flow of all good things to you. With the knowledge and practice of spiritual law, we put ourselves in harmony with nature and create with carefreeness, joy and love. True success is the experience of the miraculous. It is the unfolding of the divinity within us. It is the perception of divinity wherever we go, in whatever we perceive–in the eyes of a child, in the beauty of a flower, in the flight of a bird. When we begin to experience our life as the miraculous expression of divinity–not occasionally, but all the time–then we will know the true meaning of success.
I’m just about ready to make the 3 hour trip to see my dad for father’s day. We bought him some goodies from Williams sonoma, including some “fire wires” which are wires that coil to any shape for your shish ka bobs. So I made up some shish kabobs to take, and I made a quinoa salad
I picked up some super soft decadent bread and corn on the cobb to go with the compound butter I made.
I picked some yellow roses from the garden a made a bouquet of roses and umbrella plant clippings interspersed with pieces of my peppermint leaf plant so it smells all pepperminty. My parents do a lot of canning so I finally won a mason jar from ebay, a big one and used that for the vase. Man, its hard to win mason jars!
The head in the background is a mannequin on a stick I have for a scare crow, it scares me sometimes, but the crows they sit on its head.
Hope you have time to honor your dad on his day~~
