A couple of questions good to ask ourselves every morning, yeah?
One line from Deepak Chopra’s The Book of Secrets that resonates with me strongly, so much so that I wrote it down on a notecard that I often carry around with me, is,
“Whatever I give my attention to will grow.”
On the note card, I follow that sentence up with the question,
“What do I want to grow in my life?”
My general answer, as far as daily experiences go, is something like this:
Smiles! Hugs! Laughter! Joy! Creative expression! Friendship! Harmony! Health! Compassion and Connection! Kindness! Feelings of Appreciation and Gratitude! Awareness of God and the Infinite Goodness of Creation 🙂
And also, I’ll throw in a feeling of being at home wherever I am – home in the Present Moment. And a sense of unconditional love, unconditional safety, and unconditional support. A sense of being connected and ultimately one with everyone and everything! Living in a compassionate, conscious, and caring world, where we live with each other as members of one, universal, family – identifying with each other as children of the Divine! (If not the Divine Itself…who knows? ;-))
And…thinking about the question a bit more…I’d like a sense of clarity and vision to grow in my life, so that I see and understand more fully how my work and day-to-day activities are contributing to the Greater Good.
But enough about me! Unless me is you and we are one, then maybe let’s keep talking 😉
What do you want to grow in your life?
What you give your attention to grows. Focus on it. Let it grow. Blossom.
