22 of the wisest pieces of advice spoken by Deepak Chopra

These 22 quotes from Deepak Chopra are wonderful, philosophical and inspirational ways to consider life and the universe. We hope you’ll enjoy these wise sayings ­ and they are useful to you!

1. Mind / Body / Reality

Our minds influence the key activity of the brain, which then influences everything; perception, cognition, thoughts and feelings, personal relationships; they’re all a projection of you.

2. Values

New Age values are conscious evolution, a non­sectarian society, a non­military culture, global sharing, healing the environment, sustainable economies, self-determination, social justice, economic empowerment of the poor, love, compassion in action, going beyond religious fundamentalism, going beyond nationalism ­extreme nationalism, culture.

3. Teamwork

If you want to do really important things in life and big things in life, you can’t do anything by yourself. And your best teams are your friends and your siblings.

4. What goes around…

In every conversation I’ve had ­ with housewives in Mumbai, with middle­class people, upper­class, in the slums ­ everyone says there is an underlying consciousness of karma. That people believe in karma ­ that what you’re putting out is going to come back. If I do something to you, the energy of it is going to come back to me in the future.

5. Nature and Nurture

You can’t make positive choices for the rest of your life without an environment that makes those choices easy, natural, and enjoyable.

6. The physical condition is as important as the spiritual

Although we take it for granted, sanitation is a physical measure that has probably done more to increase human life span than any kind of drug or surgery.

7. Know where you fit in

There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.

8. Who you are

You have to think of your brand as a kind of myth. A myth is a compelling story that is archetypal, if you know the teachings of Carl Jung. It has to have emotional content and all the themes of a great story: mystery, magic, adventure, intrigue, conflicts, contradiction, paradox.

9. The unconscious and the conscious

Your conscious brain cannot multitask. If I’m speaking to you and checking my I-Phone at the same time, I’m doing neither. This is why our society is frazzled; this misconception that we can consciously do more than one thing at a time effectively.

10. The mystery of life

No matter how closely you examine the water, glucose, and electrolyte salts in the human brain, you can’t find the point where these molecules became conscious.

11. Happiness inside

Nothing is more important than reconnecting with your bliss. Nothing is as rich. Nothing is more real.

12. The benefits of age

Mature workers are less impulsive, less reactive, more creative and more centered.

13. Universality

Spirituality is meant to take us beyond our tribal identity into a domain of awareness that is more universal.

14. The antidote to chaos

In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.

15. The power of now

Life gives you plenty of time to do whatever you want to do if you stay in the present moment.

16. The traits of high performers

The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative, and reflective ­ people who know to see a problem as an opportunity.

17. Science and philosophy

Many scientists think that philosophy has no place, so for me it’s a sad time because the role of reflection, contemplation, meditation, self inquiry, insight, intuition, imagination, creativity, free will, is in a way not given any importance, which is the domain of philosophers.

18. The role of God in everything

For thousands of years, human beings have been obsessed with beauty, truth, love, honor, altruism, courage, social relationships, art, and God. They all go together as subjective experiences, and it’s a straw man to set God up as the delusion. If he is, then so is truth itself or beauty itself.

19. The eternal person

We are not victims of aging, sickness and death. These are part of scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.

20. Being fully aware, always

I’ve worked all my life on the subject of awareness, whether it’s awareness of the body, awareness of the mind, awareness of your emotions, awareness of your relationships, or awareness of your environment. I think the key to transforming your life is to be aware of who you are.

21. Karma and consciousness

Karma, when properly understood, is just the mechanics through which consciousness manifests.

22. Objectivity?

Traditional science assumes, for the most part, that an objective observer independent reality exists; the universe, stars, galaxies, sun, moon and earth would still be there if no one was looking.
