You Are Your Attention

You Are Your Attention

See your life change and become an expression of affluence, of unboundedness, abundance, infinity, and immortality.

Affluence or wealth means that one is easily able to fulfill one’s desires, whatever they may be, whether they apply to the material realm, or to our emotional, psychological or spiritual needs, or to the realm of relationship.

Create as much wealth as your heart desires. Fulfill every material and non-material desire. Create wealth and spend it. Spend it lavishly and then share it and give it to others. Give it to your children, to your family, to your relatives, to your friends, to society, and to the world. For wealth is of the universe and it does not belong to us–we belong to it.

We are privileged children and the universe has chosen to share its bounty with us. We only have to give our attention to affluence and it will be ours. Attention is all that counts.

You are where your attention takes you. In fact, you are your attention. If your attention is fragmented, you are fragmented. When your attention is in the past, you are in the past.

Simply be aware of the present, of what you are doing. The presence of God is everywhere, and you have only to consciously embrace it with your attention.

Adapted from Creating Affluence, by Deepak Chopra (New World Library, 1993).
