    Deepak Chopra answered:
    A true seeker does not chase the impossible goals. If you can avoid the pitfalls of spiritual materialism, you will be much less tempted to chase after an impossible goal. The chase began because people came to believe that God, disapproving of what he sees in us, expects us to adopt a certain ideal. It seems...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:
    Most people are firmly entrenched an operating system of duality. They live according to the assumption that they are separate, isolated individuals in a random cosmos where what happens "in here" is not reflected "out there."
