Living in A Material World

Deepak Chopra writes:

“Many people assume without question that success is essentially material, that it can be measured in money; prestige, or an abundance of possessions.  These can certainly play a role, but having such things is no guarantee of success.  The success we want our children to achieve has to be defined in many non-material ways as well.  It should include the ability to love and have compassion, the capacity to feel joy and spread it to others, the security of knowing that one’s life serves a purpose, and finally, a sense of connection to the creative power of the universe.  All of these constitute the spiritual dimension of success, the dimension that brings inner fulfillment.”

I, Meg believe that there is more to life than the material world.  With an inner balance of mind, body, and soul; harmony and happiness is easier to feel.  We can practice mindfulness in simple ways like noticing our breath as we drive in the car or trying out a yoga class.
