Wise Words from Deepak Chopra

Motivational words from deepak Chopra.
I think that is a very important component, to have passion, to have a dream, to have a purpose in life. And there are three components to that purpose, one is to find out who you really are, to discover God, the second is to serve other human beings, because we are here to do that and the third is to express your unique talents and when you are expressing your unique talents you lose track of time.

The highest level of abundance is when you don't have to think or worry about it. You can have a billion dollars in the bank and if you're constantly worried about what's happening to the stock market, you are a poor soul.

If you're really going to pursue a spiritual way of living in the world, you must be lighthearted and carefree, have humor, be able to tolerate ambiguity and embrace uncertainty, and be forgiving of yourself and everybody else.

Learn to observe without judgment, get in touch with your feelings, identify the unmet needs that those feelings are expressing, and then learn to help each other with those unmet needs.

Pay attention to your self outside the realm of your experiences and you’ll discover that there is a light there, there is a love there. Love of one, love of all, merge into love, pure and simple. It radiates from you like light from the sun. This love is not sentiment, but the truth at the heart of all creation. It can solve not only our own problems, but the problems of humanity.

Well most people think that aging is fatal and scientific data shows that that's not true. People don't die of old age, they die of diseases that accompany old age, and they are preventable.

Most people think that aging is irreversible and we know that there are mechanisms even in the
human machinery that allow for the reversal of aging, through correction of diet, through anti-oxidants, through removal of toxins from the body, through exercise, through yoga and breathing techniques, and through meditation. Most people believe that aging is normal but nobody defines what normal aging is. What we call normal may be the psychopathology of the average. Most people think that aging is genetic and yet if your parents lived to age 80+ that will add three years to your life.

The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years. Most people believe that aging is universal but there are biological organisms that never age. Most people believe that aging is painful and we know that pain is from diseases that are preventable, not from aging.

People have to change their concepts of aging and I am not asking them to do so based on some
fanciful notion but on scientific fact. When they change that, then their perception of aging will change and it will become clear to them to grow old and to become wiser, to become more creative, to become the springboard for creativity and affluence. Once your perception of the whole phenonenom changes, your reality will change because reality is nothing other than your perception of it.
