Last month Deepak Chopra started a Meditation Challenge that lasted 21 Days, the theme was Abundance,what it means to us based on culture,personal life and holistic view.One of the most beautiful passages was to learn that according to the teachings of the Vedas “every person is a piece of Gold” and as such a treasure ,one deserves the best;then one realizes that life is not only full of gifts but that those gifts are also Extra-Abundance,in the holistic way of thinking, meaning an overflow of abundance greater than one might expect ,as a super gift from the Universe such as a Sunset or Dawn full of pink light ,a Sky full of shinning stars.Luxury we could say because it is more than the already beautiful sky as it changes everyday ;and yet the Universe does not withhold, on the contrary it makes this luxury available to every being; the difference between abundance and Luxury could be if i understood correct that Luxury is going that extra mile, that extra effort to make something already abundant marvelous, unique enjoyable just for the joy of joy. That Luxury can be available to each one of us and that we can make Luxury available to someone else is a good point of view; many times we are so focused on misery thoughts.
As we cross this Winter Solstice 21.12.2012 and enter in the New Year ahead my wish for all
Is that we stay closer to Nature,with her we are balanced in our views,she is Mother that Loves ,Heals ,inspires and does not deny.Even in the most remote areas of this planet,where famine and hunger exist, it is not the action of Nature,but the misuse of power by men and women.
Imagine noticing the Sacred in all those Acts of Nature we take for granted, then your Life becomes a Life of giving thanks for each instant of Life,for each being ,element that contributes to such miracle!
