Envy or hassad is the main attribute of Omanis. Ask any Omani and they will confirm this feature to be true. In fact, in the language and culture class I often teach at Sultan Qaboos University, I start by asking my students to write a list of Omani features. Hassad always, and unfailingly, tops the list. It is time to change this unhealthy characteristic, for I believe a big percentage of Omanis are ready to do just that.
These are "the best of times," and these are "the worst of times." This is "the age of wisdom," this is "the age of foolishness," it is "the epoch of belief," it is "the epoch of incredulity," it is "the season of Light," it is "the season of Darkness," it is "the spring of hope," it is "the winter of despair." (With sincere apologies and gratitude to Charles Dickens).
The last of Deepak Chopra's seven spiritual laws of success that I have been pontificating for the past couple of months is the Law of Dharma or the Law of Purpose.
The best part about meeting Deepak Chopra in person in Oman is not just the opportunity to engage with one of the greatest minds ever lived, it is the reminder that the seven spiritual laws of success he teaches do indeed work. Sometimes we all need a dose of faith reinstated.
Since I started writing about the seven spiritual laws of success, based on teachings of the main thought-leader of the 21st century, Deepak Chopra, I have received several e-mails from various nationalities informing me of their dedication to follow my instructions. Because they all, just like the rest of us, are fascinated by the possibility of having the power to make their/our dreams come true.
