This is one of my favorite positive affirmations statements:


When you find your purpose, it is like your heart has been set alight with passion. You know it absolutely, without any doubt.

Here is an excerpt from Deepak Chopra M.D. book Creating Affluence~Wealth Consciousness in the Field of all Possibilities.


“R” stands for the fact that receiving is as necessary as giving. To graciously receive is an expression of the dignity of giving. Those who are unable to receive are actually incapable of giving.  Giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe.


Giving and receiving do not have to be in the form of material things. To graciously receive a compliment or admiration or respect also implies the ability to be able to give these to others.  And absence of respect, courtesy, manners, or admiration creates a state of poverty irrespective of the amount of money you have in the bank.










Eckhart Tolle’s book ~ A New Earth  shares his view on being able to let go of the “stuff” inside your head.


Carrying the Past:


The inability or rather unwillingness of the human mind to let go of the past is beautifully illustrated in the story of two Zen monks, Tanzan and Ekido, who were walking along a country road that had become extremely muddy after heavy rains. Near a village, they came upon a young woman who was trying to cross the road, but the mud was so deep it would have ruined the silk kimono she was wearing. Tanzan at once picked her up and carried her to the other side.


The monks walked on in silence.  Five hours later, as they were approaching the lodging temple, Ekido couldn’t restrain himself any longer. “Why did you carry that girl across the road?” he asked.  “We monks are not supposed to do things like that.”


“I put the girl down hours ago,” said Tanzan.  “Are you still carrying her?”
