I have read the first section of the book What Are You Hungry For? by Deepak Chopra and I must say it has left me feeling amazed at the route my life has taken this past year. I have come so far and have led myself to exactly what Deepak explains in the book. I am happy I purchased it because initially I felt as though I didn’t need it, but I am here to tell you that I certainly did. I needed it like a cake needs icing. It is helping me to understand just what it is I have been doing and why it has worked for me. It is helping me understand that I was able to allow my intuition to guide me to this place and I am so thankful for it. I know that God is the guiding force behind all of my accomplishments that I have faced this year and I know that he will be the driving force behind all of the accomplishments I face in the future. I am so grateful to have been given this gift.
After spending most of my life as a prisoner within myself I cannot tell you how beautiful it is to be free. How wonderful it is to know that I am capable of loving me so much that I can and do treat my mind, body and soul with the respect it deserves. There were times in my life that I felt as though I was a lost cause and would be better off dead. I couldn’t understand why God was making me live through the torment, but now I know. Now I know that the torment was what I needed to get me to where I am today. I felt as though God hated me, but now I know he loved me enough to allow for all the right ingredients to guide me to this day.
I am happy to say that I finally know what bliss is. I know what it means to have joy emanating from the core of my being. I no longer look to others to make me feel good about myself. I no longer need anyone other than myself. My happiness was always living within me, I just didn’t know it, nor did I know how to access it. For so many years I felt as though I would always be a burden to myself and those that I loved, but now I can see how I am just the opposite. I am a blessing. I live my life, now, to bless others, and I love it. I feel full, happy and balanced finally, once and for all.
I have been given a gift that I am so grateful for and if possible I ask God to help me share it with others. I truly would love nothing more than to see other people who struggle with self loathing to change that around, to find the peace and understanding for themselves as I have. Life can be amazingly beautiful. Our problems can turn into mini challenges that will excite us to overcome. Nothing in life is so catastrophic that we can’t learn and grow from it, it’s simply how we perceive it.
