My Time with Deepak Chopra

Several years ago I was honored to assist Deepak Chopra in a book signing after his presentation at Unity of Phoenix.  He was there to talk about his book Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul. It was such an enlightening talk.

It was the first time I had the realization that our cells have intelligence.  It has helped me understand that there is far more to health and wellness than heredity or chance.

The greatest thing I was struck with during my time with Deepak was that he emanates peace.  It has been a great lesson for me when I find myself too wrapped up in any given situation.

Some of my favorite Deepak Chopra Quotes:

Deepak Chopra Melissa Knecht

“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.”

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

“Success comes when people act together; failure tends to happen alone.”

“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.”

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

“Wealth is the progressive realization of worthy goals, the ability to love and have compassion, meaningful and caring relationships.”

“Yes, in all my research, the greatest leaders looked inward and were able to tell a good story with authenticity and passion.”

“A risk-free life is far from being a healthy life.”

“Spiritual people should not be ashamed of being wealthy.”

“Whenever blood stops flowing, it begins to clot, to stagnate. That is why you must give and receive in order to keep wealth and affluence–or anything you want–circulating in your life. If our only intention is to hold on to our money and hoard it–since it’s life energy, we will stop its circulation back into our lives as well. In order to keep that energy coming to us, we have to keep the energy circulating. Thus, the more you give, the more you will receive.”

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey,stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”

“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.”

“You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.”
