The Law of Pure Potentiality Part 4
Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
The source of all creation is pure consciousness, pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest.
And when we realize that our true Self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in the universe.
Turn it inside out and see what it is like when old, sick, or prostituting itself. How short- lived the praiser and praised, the one who remembers and remembered. Remembered in some corner of these parts, and even there not in the same way by all, or even by one. And the whole earth is but a mere speck.
—Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 8.21(resource) Ryan Holiday, The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom
In the beginning there was neither existence nor non existence.
All this world was unmanifest energy.
The One breathed, without breath, by Its own power.
Nothing else was there.
— Hymn of Creation, The Rig Veda (resource) Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
