I'm looking forward to a yoga retreat next month in the Berkshires with talks by Deepak Chopra, physician and author (of 50 books) on topics that span spirituality and health. Among his best sellers are books on aging.
In preparation, I am listening to his the "Seven Spiritual Laws of Success," and today was struck by his reminder of the root word affluence.
Affleur means "to flow." And who better to understand this principle than realtors - sales people.
One tip I am taking away is the idea that you give something to each person you meet.
Consciously decide to bless or compliment each person who comse across your path. Detach from the results, but know that what you give will have a result (karma - law of cause and effect)
