After my computer booted up early this morning, I saw a message directing me to a podcast from Deepak Chopra. He raised questions and introduced proposals about ‘reality’. My reality was still in the land of dreams but Deepak’s words impacted strongly and I filled an A4 sheet with related thoughts.
In a brief presentation of his 11 Laws of Reality, I had no difficulty with ‘laws’ 1 to 10 but, the eleventh raised an excited bleep.
. . . (Paraphrased here) human beings will have freedom from constructs. Total freedom to endlessly create and transform ourselves and our experience of reality.
This reminded me of something on Kabbalah.info (copied below).
I believe what they say and wonder how we will free ourselves from the common attitude of, ‘what’s in it for me’? If we can free ourselves from the need of regular selfish desires and transform our thoughts and desires to the needs of others. That would lead to a better world—Wonderful! It’s a beautiful utopia to aim for and must start with you and me.
As with many things said by Deepak Chopra, more thinking time is necessary. Please share your thoughts; I would love to read them.
The law of motivation states that humans are naturally motivated to seek lasting pleasure, but are unable to achieve it in their regular selfish desires. Therefore, in order to achieve unlimited pleasure, humans need a new motivation, beyond selfishness, which is to fulfill others.
Modern Laws of Global Life
Law of Motivation
Human beings are naturally motivated to seek lasting pleasure.
However, when their desires meet the pleasure, the desires are gradually extinguished.
The resulting emptiness motivates the individual to once again seek fulfillment, creating an endless cycle of fleeting pleasures.
Exhausted by this cycle, an individual is forced to seek an entirely new and different motivation for fulfillment.
This can only be found outside of the regular selfish fulfillment – it is the motivation to fulfill others.
When this motivation meets our global reality, the opportunities for pleasure are unlimited, extinguishing the emptiness of modern life.”
