This seemed like a good thought for the day.
I have not mentioned this on the podcast, but I recently found on Facebook an invitation to join the 21 Day Meditation Challenge, hosted by Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra. Today, March 11, 2013, is the first day of the challenge.
As part of this challenge, the hosts are sending us very interesting articles concerning meditation and the true self, among other topics. Here is one of today's articles: How to Tell Your True Self from Your Everyday Self.
I really like the list at the end of the first page that basically shows how the True Self stays oriented in happiness at all times, while the Everyday Self is much more emotionally "fluttery".
I especially like this paragraph:
"Look at the qualities of the true self: self-reliant, evolutionary, loving, creative, knowing, accepting and peaceful. Whenever anyone is in crisis, whether the problem is a troubled marriage or difficulties at work or over money, they will make the best decisions if they utilize these qualities."
