It's true that we control very little in our lives - but we can control how our thoughts, desires, and actions add up. Together, these demonstrate integrity.
Tonight was Day 18 of the Chopra Center's 21-Day Meditation Challenge.
Another blogger captured the basis of the meditation in this clear, simple visual:
It is all a cycle. If we want to change something - a pattern, a behavior, a situation - we start by intervening at the desire.
Ask yourself: "What do I *really* want? What is my dharma (my purpose in life?" During the meditation, davidji suggests that the process in finding this answer involves asking the Universe how you can use your unique gifts and talents to be of service to others and then to wait on the Universe to reply.
Let the desire be planted in your heart, then take the right actions to lead you in that direction.
May you find your dharma.
