“In the desire of the One to know Himself, we exist.”
— Rumi

Congratulations! Today we complete the first week of our journey together. This week we have learned about the power of our desires and how to use Nature to fulfill them. We have learned that happiness and fulfillment are our birthright, and that the most effective way to manifest our dreams is also the easiest way.  Today we discover that our deepest desire is for spiritual awakening, which is the state of fulfillment and completeness. All other desires are variations on this basic desire for actualization. Every desire is a fragment of our being that seeks awakening, completion, and wholeness.

CENTERING THOUGHT
My deepest desire is for completeness.

SANSKRIT MANTRA
Ananda Hum
I am pure bliss.

Day07

Oprah Winfrey:

Welcome to Day 7, Your Deepest Desire.  Well, we’re already completing our first week of connecting with our dreams and how to fulfill them.  I’m hoping you’re feeling the energy of attraction within you in a new way.  Can you see it showing up?  We’ve begun to align with our deepest part of ourselves where we find the connective tissue between our desires and the power that is waiting to help manifest them.  We’ve seen how desiring from the level of our true self and trusting the universe to respond to that truth – that’s how you get what you want. It’s the most powerful path to fulfillment.  Focusing, getting clear, embracing positive emotions, surrendering and moving with the current of your true self – these are the cornerstones of manifesting the life you want.  Today, Deepak brings us back to the place where our most whole powerful intentions reside – within.  That is the source of joy, the source of freedom, the source of wholeness  – it’s the core from which the energy of attraction gets lit up.  There, we’ll take the next steps towards making our real dreams, the true ones come into being.

Deepak Chopra:

Congratulations for successfully completing the first week of our meditation experience.  You’ve acquired the foundation for turning intentions into reality.  I’m sure there have been surprises along the way because this vision of effortlessly achieving what you want isn’t like the conventional advice given by society.

You’ve learned that the word in you is connected to the world out there which means that your intentions can flow from your true self to find fulfillment in every area of life.  People may spend a lot of time and energy making their desires very very specific but to give any desire it’s power is how strongly it’s connected to the ground of Being, the true self.

Behind every desire, however small, is the energy of attraction which brings the outcome of desire.  The energy of attraction is most powerful near the source.  Just as electricity is most powerful when it comes out of the generator.  Therefore, your deepest desires are the easiest to fulfill. No doubt this comes as a surprise since conventional wisdom holds just the opposite.

Your deepest desires can come true naturally and without struggle because your deepest desires are signals from your true self.  The force of evolution in the universe supports whatever is true and promotes harmonious growth.  The desires people spend the most time chasing after such as more money, a better job and a bigger home also employ the energy of attraction.  But the path it follows is weaker and more indirect.  Why?  Because the focus is on the external goal, not on consciousness.  This isn’t to judge against getting a nicer life but when you pursue love, beauty, creativity, innovation, meaning and higher vision of life, the energy of attraction becomes much stronger.  Its strength comes from wholeness – the more whole you are, the more powerful your intentions.  It’s the same as seeing a whole picture of Niagara Falls or The Grand Canyon instead of the scattered pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.  The picture is there in the scattered pieces but it is not whole enough to recognize,

A secret of the world’s wisdom traditions is that every single desire, no matter how small, is working toward one goal – to make you more complete.  Only through feeling whole will you feel fulfilled.  Through meditation, you get in touch with the primal desire of wholeness, happiness and freedom.  Let this be your personal vision which will also embrace every smaller, more specific desire along the way.

As we prepared to meditate together, let’s take a moment to consider our centering thought.
My deepest desire is for completeness.  My deepest desire is for completeness.
Now let’s prepare for o our meditation.

Make yourself comfortable and close your eyes.  Become aware of your breath and just breathe, slowly and deeply.  With each breath allow yourself to become more deeply relaxed.  Gently introduce the mantra, Ananda Hum.  This mantra awakens the state of fulfillment that is your true self.  As you repeat the mantra, feel the sense of completeness, the joy and sense of wholeness of your inner being.  Repeat it silently to yourself, Ananda Hum.  With each repetition, feel your body, mind and spirit open and receive just a little bit more.  Whenever you find yourself distracted by thoughts, noises or physical sensations, simply return your attention to silently repeating the mantra, Ananda Hum.  Continue with your meditation for about 10 minutes.  Just mentally.  Ananda Hum.

Release the mantra and continue to sit restfully, inhaling and exhaling slowly.  When you feel ready, open your eyes.
As you continue with your day, contemplate the centering thought,
My deepest desire is for completeness.

Namaste

Journal Entries:

1.  Write down two big desires you have for companionship in your life. Now add two desires for career. Finally, add two desires you have for your health. Now look at the list and write down what you believe the emotional outcome would be from getting that desire fulfilled. The common denominator for all these desires, and all desires, is happiness, contentment, or well-being.

2.  When you realize that the feeling of happiness is the goal of all desires, then you understand that there are ways your desires can be completely fulfilled, even if the outcome differs from what you originally had in mind. Write about a burning desire you once had that was very specific, yet when it was fulfilled, it was different and perhaps better than what you had initially envisioned. What does this imply about not being too focused on details and remaining open to new options and paths as they present themselves?

3.  Review your previous six desires, then envision and describe the inner state of fulfillment and happiness behind each of those desires – which is attainable, even if the outer details are different from the initial desire.

(͡๏̯͡๏)(͡๏̯͡๏) 🎶 Powerful Lyrics ♫♪
( , , )( , , ) ♫♪”One” ~ India Arie ♫🎶
¯**´¯**´¯        
Billions live their lives
Now Muhammad, Krisha, or the Buddha are the way.
Still some believe it’s right to say
In the name of Jesus when you pray.

[Chorus:]
We are a human kind of 7 billion
So many different races and religions
And it all comes down to one

Some say God’s a him
Still many believe that He is a Her
Does God Live in our hearts?
Or is She somewhere out there in the universe.

[Chorus]

How far will have to go before we learn the lesson?
Gandhi, was a Hindu
Martin Luther King, a Christian
Regardless of religion, they knew love was the mission
And it all comes down to one.

Is there no God at all?
Or a pantheon of gods up in the sky
We can heal our broken hearts
If we give up the desire to be right.

We are a human kind of seven billion
So many different races and religions
And we all want the same things
Health, Love, Prosperity and Peace
Tolerance is the seed
And the gift of pure acceptance is the tree

[Chorus]

Whether you are red, brown, yellow, black, or white
Man with a husband, or a woman with a wife
We can debate until the end of time who is wrong or right
Or we can see ourselves as one
Cause it all comes down to love.

[Chorus]
