Years ago, during a time of personal chaos and confusion I heard about this book by Deepak Chopra-
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success- A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams.
Three words sent me to the bookstore to buy this book…
Success, Guide, Fulfillment.
The fact that I didn’t have a clue what my dreams actually were didn’t put me off. This was a guide to fulfillment. Close Enough.
I remember reading the book, enjoying the book but one page in particular, Chapter 6-page 81, stayed with me.
More specifically, the Aha! of that moment imprinted upon my soul and stayed with me.
I’ve inscribed the quote on index cards and journals; plastered copies of it in my office, my studio, my fridge ( I can always use a little help in the kitchen).
I’ve shared it more times than I can remember.
Today, I’m sharing it with you.
The Law of Detachment
“In detachment lies the wisdom of uncertainty…
In the wisdom of uncertainty lies the freedom from our past,
from the known,
which is the prison of past conditioning.
And in our willingness to step into the unknown,
the field of all possibilities
We surrender ourselves
to the creative mind
that orchestrates the dance of the universe.”
Go ahead. Take your time. Read it again if you like. I’ll wait.
Then consider what happened for me.
Accepting that dance of uncertainty carried me to the magic of not knowing, of not needing to know. Surrendering to the music of the creative mind~I give myself permission to discover and embrace my own guidance towards finding fulfillment, even if I have no specific dreams.
Take a peek at the book’s overview. You may decide it’s worth your time and effort to read the book.

Now go dance.
