On My Way To a Happy Life - 7 Spiritual Laws for Kids - March 2017
by Deepak Chopra, M.D., with Kristina Tracy
Help your children build a happy life…
“From the day your baby is born, you are a teacher of spirit. Look upon spirituality as a skill in living, since that is what it is. I believe in imparting these skills as early as possible by whatever means a child can understand.” — Deepak Chopra
What if you could teach your children 7 lessons that would help them on their way to a happy and successful life?
Over the years, many adults who have read my books and become familiar with my teachings on the 7 spiritual laws of the universe tell me they wish they had learned these lessons much earlier in life. My book On 'My Way to a Happy Life' presents these timeless universal laws in terms that even the youngest ones can understand. When kids understand the way the world works from a spiritual point of view, it makes it easier for them to navigate through life with joy, love, and happiness.
Every child has a spiritual life already. This is because every child is born into the field of infinite creativity and pure awareness that is spirit. But not every child knows that this is true. Spirit must be cultivated; it must be nourished and encouraged.
A child raised with spiritual skills will be able to answer the most basic questions about how the universe works; he or she will understand the source of creativity both within and outside of us; he or she will be able to practice nonjudgment, acceptance, and truth, which will be free from fear and anxiety about the meaning of life.
The Seven Spiritual Laws for Children:
- Everything is possible. We all have the gift of creating absolutely anything. There’s no limit to what we can do or be.
- If you want to get something, give it. Always give with a happy heart. The greatest gift is feeling good.
- When you make a choice, you change the future (karma).Your choices bring about changes. To make good choices, follow your heart. How do your choices make you feel?
- Don’t say no—go with the flow. Create peace within by learning acceptance of what is outside our control.
- Every time you wish or want, you plant a seed. Making your wish is like planting a seed and believing that it will grow. Let nature do the rest.
- Be open to life and enjoy the journey. New ways and new ideas can lead to more happiness.
- You are here for a reason.Your dharma is your purpose, path, or vision, the unique talent that you are here on Earth to share. Your dharma is your happiness.
As parents, we are not teaching our children hard-and-fast rules that must be heeded. We are inviting them into our own journey, into our sense of purpose, which never ends. It is a journey of ever-expanding meaning. Although very young children may not be able to understand what this means in words, your child can easily sense whether you find life exciting and wondrous. Your sense of purpose in the universe speaks far louder than any words.

|The Benefits of Fiber: For Your Heart, Weight, and Energy |
|Confused about fiber? You’re not alone. Dietary fiber is a misunderstood nutrient. Many people know it is important, but not much more than that. This article fills you in on the two main types of fiber – soluble and insoluble -- where to find them, and the health benefits they provide.
Dietary fibers are found naturally in the plants that we eat. They are parts of plant that do not break down in our stomachs, and instead pass through our system undigested. All dietary fibers are either soluble or insoluble. Both types of fiber are equally important for health, digestion, and preventing conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, diverticulitis, and constipation...|
|Spinach & Cilantro Pesto|
|Category: Raw Foods|
Description: One leafy, green vegetable that I cannot seem to get enough of is Spinach. Spinach is so versatile, from spinach salads, to spinach smoothies, to spinach soup. You name the recipe and spinach can be added to it. And talk about nutritious…remember Popeye?? The health benefits of spinach are numerous. It sits at the top of many super food lists. Spinach is loaded with calcium, folic acid, vitamin K and Iron. It is also rich in Vitamin C, fiber and caretenoids. Add its lutein and bioflavanoids and spinach becomes a nutritional powerhouse.
The combination of flavours in the following recipe are simply divine. I’ve cheated a bit and toasted the cashews, but it’s worth it for the enhanced flavour.
