    Deepak Chopra answered:
    Realize that there is no such thing as a missed opportunity. "I should have done that" and "If only I had said that" bring to mind all our failures, big and small.

    Resentment wastes energy, yet it lingers seductively because it always comes with a ready-made target. The alternative is to look...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:
    Having made a space for trusting yourself, now you need someone else to trust. Healing is not a matter of solitary work.

    Don't automatically put your best friend, spouse, or big sister at the top of your list. Be objective about who is emotionally available and who isn't. Look for someone who is tolerant...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:
    There is another crucial element to releasing fear. I have observed that we are all willing to release our most intimate and hidden fears when we feel trust. Trust means that you are offered the promise of safety and can accept it. Both parts are necessary -- there has to be the offer of emotional...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:
    First you must trust yourself so you are not blocked from your own release. We all feel inhibited. It is embarrassing to cry out in anguish. Look inside and ask yourself if you hold any of the following beliefs.

    Negative beliefs:
    • I've been hurting so long that it's too late to change.
    • I'm

    In your own life there is a stream of joy that is elemental and unshakable.

    My fancy was caught by an episode in the adventures of Carlos Castaneda when his master Don Juan sends him to a witch who has the ability to adopt the perception of any creature. The witch allows Castaneda to feel exactly...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:
    The answer is freedom, yet in a most peculiar way: You must free yourself from decisions. The voice in your head will die down once you stop making choices.

    A samskara -- a groove in the mind that makes thoughts flow in the same direction and thus robs one of free choice -- is a choice you remember...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:
    In the Vedic tradition, each person can choose four paths that arise from feeling, thinking, acting, and being. Each path is called a Yoga, the Sanskrit word for "union," because unity -- merging with one reality -- was the goal. Over the ages, the four Yogas have come to define specific paths that...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:
    Solving the mystery of life requires only one commandment: live like a cell. But we don't, and the reason is not hard to find. We have our own way of doing things. Our cells are fueled by the same oxygen and glucose that fueled amoebas two billion years ago, but we are attracted by high-fat, sugary,...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:
    Samskaras -- the grooves in the mind that make thoughts flow in the same direction and thus rob one of free choice -- are not silent. These deep impressions in the mind have a voice; we hear their repeated messages as words in our heads. Is it possible to figure out which voices are true and which are...Read More

    MONDAY, Dec. 15, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Folks who feel "young at heart" may be more likely to live to a ripe old age, a new British study suggests.

    Deepak Chopra answered:
    Any experience that brings you into contact with the silent level of awareness can be called meditation. You may have spontaneously hit upon a routine that allows you to experience a deep settling in your mind. If you haven't yet, then you might adopt one of the more formal meditation practices that appear in every...Read More

    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."

    Unity is totally different from duality, but you don't have to wait for...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:
    The cortex assembles the mass of raw data (continuous signals about body's state of chemical balance, temperature, and oxygen consumption, along with a crackling stream of nerve impulses) into complex arrangements of electrical and chemical blips. The cortex doesn't inform us about this never-ending...Read More
