    Deepak Chopra answered:

    In regards to healing, what is my true need?

    My true need is to know myself as my soul knows me.

    This affirmation is about the purpose of healing. When a person is in pain, there is great need, even more than in everyday life. We feel like lost children. A sense of abandonment and helplessness is normal. But these needs are a memory of the...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:

    How do I break through the illusion of helplessness?

    When you intend to accomplish something, you set things in motion within yourself. An intention to walk, for example, activates the motor centers of the brain along with balance, heart rate, blood pressure -- in fact, the whole mind-body system goes into walking mode.

    Healing works exactly the...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:

    How do I change my reality to stop suffering?

    There is a state of non-suffering inside you: it is simple and open awareness. By contrast, the state of suffering is complicated: In its attempts to wrestle with pain, the ego refuses to see that the answer could be as simple as simply learning to be. Any steps that get you to stop clinging to c...Read More

    What does it mean that the world is my body?

    In its detachment the soul performs no actions. Yet it has enteredeverything. The physical matter of the cosmos has been expressingspirit at every instant since the Big Bang. Behind the randommotion of swirling superheated gases, a hidden purpose was playingitself out. Being was upholding life. In...Read More

    How can a person change their thinking to improve anorexia?

    Anywhere that life hurts we have locked ourselves into some kind of false identification, telling ourselves private, unchallenged stories about who we are. The cure for anorexia is to somehow pry awedge between "I" and this powerful, secret identification. The same applies to all suffering because...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:

    How do I let go of resentment?

    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:

    Is my pain really mine?

    Even though your ego may cry out as if only you are in pain, you need to look further. Offering help to others, for example, ends your isolation, a primary source of your pain. A woman stood up at a lecture once and asked me, "How can I get rid of this terrible pain in my heart? It has been with me for twenty years,...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:

    Why should I feel fear as a bodily sensation?

    Feeling fear as a bodily sensation gets it out of the realm of the mind. Fear has a voice. It speaks of many dangers; it accumulates scenarios of doom and whirls from one to the other without end. As a voice, fear is extremely persuasive, yet the words are connected to bodily reactions. These are...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:

    What if I don't have an ideal partner for healing in my life?

    Two things can be said about this. First, you can seek out professional help and ease into deep trust, moving at your own speed and sensing -- not from the mind but from the heart -- if he or she is truly open enough to accept the darker energies you want to release.

    Second, there is a spiritual...Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:

    Is suffering individual or mutual?

    Everyone suffers. In times of war or calamity or natural disasters, everyone suffers together. Yet no matter how far the dark ripples of pain might spread, suffering is always individual. We feel it inside as a wound to ourselves, but because it is invisible, we can't show this wound to anyone else....Read More

    Deepak Chopra answered:

    What happens if I decide to lead a consciously spiritual life?

    If you decide to lead a consciously spiritual life, a change occurs. The principles of the operating system, which means the rules of creation, become personal. Let's take a look at how we can line up the universal with the personal:
