Below is a list of best quotes from Deepak Chopra about Spirituality, Mind and Meditation

The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years.

Deepak Chopra

Happiness is a continuation of happenings which are not resisted.

Deepak Chopra

A verse from the Veda says, ‘What you see, you become.’ In other words, just the experience of perceiving the world makes you what you are. This is a quite literal statement.

Deepak Chopra

Any new identity that you find on your life’s journey is going to morph into another identity as you continue along. All these identities can be healthy, yet it’s undeniable that to grow from one identity to the next involves destruction. The habits of the old self must give way to the habits of the new.

Deepak Chopra

As you access more creativity, you are evolving. On the other hand, if you try to use old solutions to solve new problems, your evolution will slow down.

Deepak Chopra

Attention activates the energy field, and intention activates the information field, which causes transformation.

Deepak Chopra

Find someone whom you trust enough to begin the process of release that you must continue on your own.

Deepak Chopra

If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.

Deepak Chopra

In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.

Deepak Chopra

In our imaginations we believe that love is apart from us. Actually there is nothing but love, once we are ready to accept it. When you truly find love, you find yourself.

Deepak Chopra

Inner silence promotes clarity of mind; It make us value the inner world; It trains us to go inside to the source of peace and inspiration when we are faced with problems and challenges.

Deepak Chopra

If you are driving home from work and your gaze is caught by a glowing sunset, consider that Nature wanted to catch your attention, not that you and the sunset are having just an accidental encounter.

Deepak Chopra

I realize that for many people there is a huge barrier in the form of “the other,” someone outside themselves whose evil is unquestioned. Sixty years ago “the other” lived in Germany and Japan; 30 years ago it lived in the Soviet Union; today it lives in the Middle East. Such people find evil easier to explain by never losing sight of “the other” – without an enemy, they would have to face the presence of evil inside themselves.

Deepak Chopra

Human beings are made of body, mind and spirit. Of these, spirit is primary, for it connects us to the source of everything, the eternal field of consciousness.

Deepak Chopra

Everything is connected with everything else. In the spiritual world, those connections become visible. But in the physical world, we only glimpse the connections in the clues given to us through coincidence.

Deepak Chopra

Emotion brings in the dimension of bonding or tuning in: An experience that touches your heart makes the meaning that much more personal.

Deepak Chopra

Death as a fact becomes less brutal if you can accept that it is a necessary part of life. The universe recycles everything in the never-ending flow of time. The atoms that make up your body have found a temporary shelter only. Like birds of passage they are always in flight.

Deepak Chopra

Break out of the mindset that your life consists of good and bad choices that set your destiny on an unswerving course. Your life is the product of your awareness. Every choice follows from that, and so does every step of growth.

Deepak Chopra

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

Deepak Chopra

It takes no effort to love. The state has its own innate joy. Questions answer themselves if you are aware enough. Life is safe; flowing with the current of being is the simplest way to live. Resistance never really succeeds. Controlling the flow of life is impossible.

Deepak Chopra

Joy is a return to the deep harmony of body, mind, and spirit that was yours at birth and that can be yours again. That openness to love, that capacity for wholeness with the world around you, is still within you.

Deepak Chopra

Just as light brightens darkness, discovering inner fulfillment can eliminate any disorder or discomfort. This is truly the key to creating balance and harmony in everything you do.

Deepak Chopra

Just by being ourselves we are borne toward a destiny far beyond anything we could imagine. It is enough to know that the being I nourish inside me is the same as the Being that suffuses every atom of the cosmos.

Deepak Chopra

Many cultures have viewed the barrier between life and death as permeable. We insist on making it into a wall, and behind this insistence lurks a good deal of unspoken fear.

Deepak Chopra

Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.

Deepak Chopra

No matter how much of a mess we may have made of our lives, it is always possible to tap into the part of the soul that is universal, the infinite field of pure potential, and change the course of our destiny.

Deepak Chopra

No single decision you ever made has led in a straight line to where you find yourself now.

Deepak Chopra

To feel an emotion fully and completely, to experience it and then release it, is to be in the present, the only moment that never ages.

Deepak Chopra

The possibility of stepping into a higher plane is quite real for everyone. It requires no force or effort or sacrifice. It involves little more than changing our ideas about what is normal.

Deepak Chopra

The more attention you put on coincidences and the more you inquire into their significance, the more often the coincidences occur and the more clearly their meaning comes into view.

Deepak Chopra

Take a little time every day to notice the contents of your mind. This act of noticing, although very simple, is one of the most powerful steps to bringing about change. What you don’t see you cannot change.

Deepak Chopra

Spirit can do one thing that your ego craves very deeply and can’t accomplish on its own. Spirit can help the ego escape that painful trap of I, me, and mine.

Deepak Chopra

Relaxation is the prerequisite for that inner expansion that allows a person to express the source of inspiration and joy within.

Deepak Chopra

Reality isn’t a vast, fixed scheme trapping you without choice. At any moment you have the choice to break out of what is really trapping you – your automatic reactions dredged up from the past.

Deepak Chopra

Pay attention to that unchanging part of yourself. It is perfect. At the source of life, and only there, one finds peace, harmony, and the undisturbed contentment of bliss.

Deepak Chopra

Our most fundamental needs – for love, understanding, encouragement, support – permeate every cell. The desires that arise in your mind are often clouded by ego motives, which are not true needs.

Deepak Chopra

Our intentions attract the elements and forces, the events, the situation, the circumstances and the relationships necessary to fulfill the intended outcome. We don’t need to become involved in the details – in fact, trying too hard may backfire. Let the non-local intelligence synchronize the actions of the universe to fulfill your intentions for you.

Deepak Chopra

Withhold no good impulse. You may fear that you will run to excess and squander too much, but those feelings are born of fear. In God’s reality, the more you give of yourself–in feeling, generosity, self-expression, goodness, creativity, and love–the more you will be given.

Deepak Chopra

When you live your life with an appreciation of coincidences and their meanings, you connect with the underlying field of infinite possibilities.

Deepak Chopra

When the human organism is discharging its negative experience efficiently, the mind is empty of past or future concerns; there is no worry, anticipation, or regret. This means that the mind is left open to Being, the simplest state of awareness.

Deepak Chopra

We tend to think of evolution as a straight-line march from primitive organisms to higher ones. A better image would be of a bubble expanding to take in more and more of life’s potential.

Deepak Chopra

We forget sometimes that there are saints living among us. When we meet them, we are reminded, not just of the presence of pure divinity right here on earth, but also of our own potential, and of the responsibility we have to try to live up to it – for our own sakes and for the very future of this planet.

Deepak Chopra

You can wish for things in the future to be different, but in this moment you have to accept things as they are.

Deepak Chopra
