“Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture the heart. ” —Native American Proverb
Welcome to the second week of our 21-Day Meditation Experience,Desire and Destiny. Last week, we focused on understanding who we are, connecting with our essential nature and divine essence. Today, as we invite abundance and clarity into our lives, we begin to explore what it is we really want in this lifetime. This awareness guides us to the steps on the road-map toward living our destinies.
We may carry long-held beliefs about our identity and character that were given to us by others. These ideas influence our perceptions about what we want in life. Today, as we meditate together, give yourself permission to let go as you sink into the meditation. Let your heart and soul speak to you as we travel within to hear our inner song of truth. Breathe deeply and receive on this day filled with transformational opportunity. Today we let our hearts lead the way for all of the answers we seek live within—all we have to do is listen.
Our centering thought for today is:
My heart knows the answer.
Our Sanskrit mantra for today is:
“Om Varunam Namah.”My life is in harmony with the universe.
Spend some time today closing your eyes, connecting with your heart, and repeating the questions, “What do I want? What do I really want?” Be open to whatever answers come to you. After a few minutes, open your eyes and write down what you envision. Look at this list each day before you go into meditation and see how these things manifest in your life.
Today, Deepak guided us to “use our minds, hearts, and souls to become clear on what is truly important so we can pursue these things with intention, focus, and awareness.”
And we begin, again, by asking those hard knitty-gritty questions that we like to sometimes deny and hide from.
The biggest question of all must be asked in order to move forward, “what do I want?” It’s really a simple question, it is only when our ego tries to get in the way of the answering process. It appeals to our sense of materialism at first, and then we just brush that aside and ask ourselves, “what do I REALLY want?” What will bring me most joy? What do I really want?
That’s a loaded question isn’t it?
So simple, yet so powerful to stop us dead in our tracks.
