The Daily Chill Pill

You can do it! The more you say you cannot, the more obstacles you create. Try saying, Yes, I can! Then watch what happens.

This is a part of Ed and Deb Shapiro's Daily Chill Pill series. A new Chill Pill will be posted each day so check back for your daily dose of zen.

See our award-winning book, "Be the Change: How Meditation Can Transform You and the World," with forewords by the Dalai Lama and Robert Thurman and contributions from Seane Corn, Matthew Fox, Jane Fonda, Ram Dass, Ellen Burstyn, Byron Katie and many others.

Our three meditation CDs -- "Metta: Loving-Kindness and Forgiveness," "Samadhi: Breath Awareness and Insight" and "Yoga Nidra: Inner Conscious Relaxation" -- are available at
