Deepak Chopra Quotes

A collection of quotes and teachings of Deepak Chopra.

Life is like a tree and its root is consciousness. Therefore, once we tend the root, the tree as a whole will be healthy. Nature controls healing from this deeper level already, for every cell participates in the body’s inner intelligence, responding to the patient’s thoughts, emotions, desires, beliefs and self image.

Sad or depressing thoughts produce changes in brain chemistry that have a detrimental effect on the body’s physiology. Likewise, happy thoughts of all kinds, loving thoughts, thoughts of peace and tranquility, of compassion, friendliness, kindness, generosity, affection, warmth and intimacy each produce a corresponding state of physiology via the flux of neurotransmitters and hormones in the central nervous system.

We have a pharmacy inside us that is absolutely exquisite. It makes the right medicine, for the precise time, for the right target organ – with no side effects.

I live my life even now as if I could die this evening. Your priorities are different when you live your life constantly aware that death is stalking you. You don’t waste your time in trivia or mundane things, or get upset by people. You are much more loving and compassionate.

The gifts of caring, attention, affection, appreciation, and lover are some of the most precious gifts you can give, and they don’t cost you anything.

You alone are the judge of your worth, and your goal is to discover infinite worth in yourself, no matter what anyone else thinks.

Faith can be the cover for a mind that stubbornly holds on to God or stubbornly refuses to accept the possibility of God.

All faiths were founded on direct experience of the Divine, and their intention was to pass that experience on.

Faith is a form of hope and hope is unfulfilled unless real experience arrives.

Turn inward to find the root that faith springs from. When you find it, faith will no longer be a crutch, an excuse, or a desperate hope.

Nature’s intelligence functions with effortless ease… with carefreeness, harmony and love.

And when we harness the forces of harmony, joy and love, we create success and good fortune with effortless ease.

The source of all creation is pure consciousness… pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest.

And when we realize that our true Self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in the universe.

The universe operates through dynamic exchange…giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe.

And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.

Deepak Chopra Thoughts On Rituals

Rituals are a way for families to feel that they belong together as one mind and heart. You cannot help but feel close when you sit down to a meal that everyone enjoys or attend a party where everyone shares the same excitement and happiness. Lighting the diya is a quieter experience, but it has the same effect. It unites people at a level of reverence.

Rituals should never be empty. They remind us who we are. If we come from the light, an oil lamp can remind us, once a day at least, of who we really are. Everyday existence is hectic and full of distractions. Caught up in activities, everyone gets distracted. So it is good to find your center for a moment, and performing a ritual does that for many people.
