 Bonus!
Day 22 – “The Most You Can Do for the World”

 

“Your own Self-Realization is the greatest service you can render the world.” – Ramana Maharshi

 

Today’s meditation is about spiritual freedom and freedom of our true self, and radiating this precious gift as love, peace, compassion and joy to unite, heal and uplift everyone it reaches.  Every moment that we live from our highest self, we’re giving our best to the world.

“I create my reality to benefit the world”

Sanskrit Mantra:  

“Vasu Deva Kutum Bakam” (sounds like  Vah-soo Day-vah Koo-toom Bah-come)
“The world is my family”

Oprah says….

She tells us to honor our soul, love and nurture it because when we do this, we love and nurture the entire world

Deepak says…

From this 21 day journey, very simply, when we’re unstuck, we are free.  When we’re living consciously, living a limitless life is a possibility and with it comes freedom and a field of infinite possibilities.

Sometimes placing a high value on creativity is judged as being selfish, narcissistic or a luxury but it can actually be that when we become co-creators of our reality, we’re changing the world for the better.  Our freedom, the most precious kind that exists inside us,  adds to the freedom of all mankind,  bringing peace and light no matter what the external circumstances.   When our personal reality is at peace, we are a unit of peace for the world as a whole, and likewise when we create safe and secure surroundings for those around us, then we’re doing all we can to make the world more safe and secure.

The Worlds Wisdom Traditions teach that we’re not in the world, the world is in us.  So, when we evolve within ourselves, the world is being encouraged to evolve.  If we want to live in a healed world, we need to extend our compassion and understanding to everyone in our surroundings –

  • Speak out of hope, equality everyone needs.
  • Act out of love and our best intentions will go viral.
  • When we hear anyone being disparaged because they are different, go inside and welcome them as part of our family.

Deepak says “Our inner family is humanity itself and when we create discord and misunderstanding, we are sending part of our family into exile, turning them into spiritual refugees with nowhere to go.  Even when you feel helpless to aid the bereft and homeless, you can offer them sanctuary in your heart.  At the spiritual level, this welcome is always felt and received.  Once you accept that the world is in you, your life gains its highest purpose and you are aligned with the deepest values of spirituality.”

Repeat to myself,
“I create my reality to benefit the world
I create my reality to benefit the world“

Listen to some relaxing music, breathe slowly and deeply,  become more and more relaxed, and meditate for about 10 minutes using the Sanskrit mantra –

“Vasu Deva Kutum Bakam” (sounds like  Vah-soo Day-vah Koo-toom Bah-come)
“The world is my family”

Deepak says the mantra means “the whole world is my family.  From expanded awareness I feel a connection to everyone.”

“Vasu Deva Kutum Bakam
Vasu Deva Kutum Bakam
Vasu Deva Kutum Bakam

Continue meditating  for about 10 minutes and then release the mantra.  Concentrate on the centering thought:   being fulfilled and being who you want to be and repeating:

“I create my reality to benefit the world
I create my reality to benefit the world“

 

Reflections on Day 22-  write about it…

  • “Reflect on my progress towards becoming unstuck, thinking about the qualities of flow, openness, absence of stress, calmness, inner freedom and joy. Journal about my appreciation of those qualities and how I envision they will keep expanding.”
  • “Having appreciated my own inner growth toward a limitless life, resolve in my heart to be a unit of peace consciousness. Bring to mind two people that I would like to see achieve the same freedom in their lives and write down three ways I can reach out to them to bring more calm, sympathy, warmth, and love into their lives.”
  • “Reflecting on my answers in the previous questions, spend a few moments imagining a world in which everyone is free from their “stuckness” and open to all possibilities. Journal about what that looks like. How is it different from the world as it exists today?”
  • “Reflect further on today’s experience.”
