Today’s quote is from George Dorsey. “Play is the beginning of knowledge.”
Today’s centering thought is my being is wise and knowing.
Today’s Sanskrit mantra is Vadohum, which means “I am pure knowledge.”
From today’s message:
“We value the wisdom of those who have learned well from their life experiences. Today we will learn that there is another kind of wisdom valued by the spiritual traditions of the world, and that is the wisdom gained from meditation. This spiritual wisdom is what we are cultivating during our 21-Day Meditation Experience. As we delve deeper into our awareness, we uncover greater knowledge and joy. We see our essential connection with everyone else from the vantage point of unity consciousness.”
The nineteenth day of Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s Expanding Your Happiness Meditation Experience was about radiating wisdom.
Oprah shared that “wisdom is more that what you know or the sum of your life experiences, both rich and difficult. Wisdom is what you feel, and I believe the wisest people are always seeking, going deeper and higher.”
Deepak shared. “You want to embrace the wholeness of life, because in wisdom, you know that life’s essence is in eternal bliss and infinitely expanding consciousness. You are wise because you have started to walk the path of wisdom by recovering your true self and reconnecting with your soul. There is no wiser decision that anyone can make. The wisdom of great learning is something I admire, but what I admire the most is the wisdom to see beyond appearances and to seek union with Spirit. When you radiate the happiness of your true self, you are radiating the wisdom of the seeker who is on the spiritual path.”
I am truly in awe with Oprah and Deepak’s messages. I know I do not know everything… most times, I do not know anything. HaHa All I know is what I have experienced and what I have observed from other people’s experiences.
As I continue to walk my Spiritual path and open myself to learning and growing, I will gain wisdom to help me live this life well. One of my affirmations is “every day, in every way, I am getting better and better.” I think that as I continue to choose happiness and walk my Spiritual path, I will gain more understanding and trust in the process of Life. I always pray that I hope I will see, act, feel, and speak through love, so that everyone I meet will come away feeling better than before having met me. In doing so, I hope that I am contributing to collective consciousness and helping to make our existence a better one.
