“When you discover your essential nature and know who you really are, in that knowing itself is the ability to fulfill any dream you have, because you are the eternal possibility, the immeasurable potential of all that was, is, and will be.” -Deepak Chopra
According to Deepak Chopra, the first spiritual law of success is the Law of Pure Potentiality. It is the field of all possibilities and infinite creativity. It is based on the fact that we are in a state of pure consciousness. We are infinite and unbounded which is also the same as experiencing pure joy, this is our spiritual essence. There are many ways to experience and practice this law, but one of them is spending time in nature. Spending time in nature gives you infinite creativity, freedom, and bliss. By spending time in nature, you receive a sense of unity with all of the elements of life. You are a bundle of manifested energy and by spending time in nature you connect with all of nature’s intelligence. This relationship will help you gain insight to yourself, mirroring your true essence; every relationship is a reflection of your relationship with yourself. Learn to get in touch with your most inner self. Deepak Chopra says it best, “Your true essence is beyond the ego. It is fearless, it is free; it is immune to criticism, it does not fear any challenge. It is beneath no one, superior to no one, and full of magic, mystery, and enchantment.” The universe has an unbounded and unlimited amount of creativity, developing a relationship with it will help you gain access to your own infinite and unbounded creativity, but first you have to go beyond your own turbulent inner dialogue and be still.
“You need not leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. You need not even listen, simply wait. You need not even wait, just learn to become quiet, and still, and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no choice; it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” – Franz Kafka

I HIGHLY recommend Deepak Chopra’s “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success”. It is a quick read and a life changer. If you are not familiar with Chopra, he is considered the “new age guru” and praised by Oprah and many celebrities. However, that’s not why I like him; I love his views on life, the mind, body, and soul. He has many guided meditations available via YouTube or on his website. He also has a retreat center located in Oceanside, CA. My best friend worked there and it is beautiful! Classes and seminars are offered there, as well as a luxurious day spa. He has many books that cover an array of topics, but I feel this one is a good one to have as principles for life. Check it out.
