The Universe is the game of the self, which plays hide and seek forever and ever.
Deepak Chopra states the following breakthrough ideas in his book,
Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul :
Your body is boundless. It is channeling the energy, creativity and intelligence of the entire universe.
At this moment, the universe is listening through your ears, seeing through your eyes, experiencing through your brain.
Your purpose for being here is to allow the universe to evolve.
Here is an excerpt from Catherine Ingram's book, Passionate Presence :
In awakened awareness we are not mentally carving up the world into what should be included or not. We sense the world as a vast extension of ourselves. We belong to it and it belongs to us. Imagine the delight.
The beauty that we experience in outward manifestation is a direct reflection of the beauty of our internal reality. Have you ever noticed how someone you love or one who has simply been kind to you may suddenly look beautiful even though you might have once considered that same face to be plain? What was it that changed? In awakened awareness we are not solely dependent on visual stimulation to experience beauty because we recognize that the greatest conduit for the experience of beauty is love. When we love, we see beauty; we speak in beauty; we walk in beauty. In love, we are beauty itself.
