[ Adapted from Creating Affluence by Deepak Chopra (New World Library, 1993) ]
Affluence is our natural state, and the entire physical universe with all its abundance is the offspring of an unbounded, limitless field of all potentialities. Helping others make money and helping other people to fulfill their desires is a sure way to ensure you’ll make money for yourself as well as more easily fulfill your own dreams.
Truly wealthy people never worry about long-term money because they know that wherever money comes from there is an inexhaustible supply of it.
We are here to fulfill a purpose. It is up to us to find out what that purpose is. Once we know our purpose then the knowledge of one’s purpose leads to the insight that we are true potentiality. We must be able to state our purpose in very simple terms. Knowing our purpose opens up the doorway to the field of pure potentiality because inherent in our desire are the seeds and mechanics for its fulfillment.
Whatever service we are here to give, there is demand for it. Ask yourself, “How may I serve?” and “How can I help?” The answers are within you. When you find those answers, you will also see and know that there is a demand for your service.
The best way to motivate other people to help you fulfill your goals is to help them fulfill their goals. Your competitors and enemies will become your helpers when you exult in their success. Always expect the best and you’ll see that the outcome is spontaneously contained in the expectation.
Life naturally evolves in the direction of happiness. We must constantly ask ourselves if what we are doing is going to make us, and those around us, happy. Because happiness is the ultimate goal. It is the goal of all other goals.
