The question was asked, “How does a person, recognizing that we are all expressions of divinity, submit to a social system that does not support this idea?”
The question was kindly answered by spiritual teacher and healer, Deepak Chopra:
“Everything is conscious. Living in accord with this truth means that you respect all life forms. You believe that you are a part of a living whole, and you act as if all your actions help the whole to evolve. You recognize a kinship with every level of consciousness, from the lowest to the highest. Everything fits together. There are no loose parts to the universe, nothing is left over. Wholeness keeps each part in place and assigns each its necessary role. When anything looks random, you are seeing one pattern moving into another. You alone are the judge of your worth, and your goal is to discover infinite worth in yourself, no matter what anyone else thinks. Make ecstasy with sobriety your home.”
Thank you, Deepak!
