A friend of mine sent me this Deepak Chopra quote. She actually sent it to me in an e-mail about some personal things going on in her life only I relate to it so much.

“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous” – Deepak Chopra

I relate to the worrying, the search for enlightenment and a higher consciousness.

I also know that I have not stopped fighting my journey enough yet, nor have I traveled through it far enough to know this type of enlightenment.

However, I do now have more days where I worry less, joy more, experience those purposeful coincidences and hope for the miraculous again.
