See the world as if for the first time; see it through the
eyes of a child, and you will suddenly find that you are free.

   

Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.
  
  
Meeting a stranger can be totally fleeting and meaningless, for example, unless you enter the individualís world by finding out at least one thing that is meaningful to his or her life and exchange at lest one genuine feeling. Tuning in to others is a circular flow: you send yourself out toward people; you receive them as they respond to you.

      
According to the law of Dharma, you have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it. There is something that you can do better than anyone else in the whole world--and for every unique talent and unique expression of that talent, there are also unique needs. When these needs are matched with the creative expression of your talent, that is the spark that creates affluence. Expressing your talents to fulfill needs creates unlimited wealth and abundance.
  
The Ego, however, is not who you really are. The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants control, and it is sustained by power, because it lives in fear.
  
  
And stop talking in that puffed-up way they taught you. Words aren't brains, you know.
   

There are many aspects to success; material wealth is only one component. . . . But success also includes good health, energy and enthusiasm for life, fulfilling relationships, creative freedom, emotional and psychological stability, a sense of well-being, and peace of mind.

     

The worst curse to befall anyone is stagnation, a banal existence,
the quiet desperation that comes out of a need for conformity.

If we are creating ourselves all the time, then it is never too late
to begin creating the bodies we want instead of the ones
we mistakenly assume we are stuck with.

   

Silence is the great teacher and to learn its lessons you must
pay attention to it. There is no substitute for the creative
inspiration, knowledge, and stability that come from knowing
how to contact your core of inner silence.

   

If you contemplate the Golden Rule, it turns out to be an injunction
to live by grace rather than by what you think other people deserve.

   
    
Acknowledged as one of the world's greatest leaders in the field of mind body medicine, Deepak Chopra, M.D. continues to transform our understanding of the meaning of health.  Through his creation of The Chopra Center for Well Being in California in 1995, Dr. Chopra established a formal vehicle for the expansion of his healing approach using the integration of the best of western medicine with natural healing traditions.  Dr. Chopra serves as the Director of Education at The Chopra Center, which offers training programs in mind body medicine
(Journey into Healing).  Through his partnership with David Simon, M.D. and numerous health care professionals in both conventional and complementary healing arts, Chopra's work is changing the way the world views physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social wellness.

What prompted Deepak Chopra to expand his view of conventional medicine to embrace complementary treatments from around the world?  Formerly the Chief of Staff at Boston Regional Medical Center, Dr. Chopra built a successful endocrinology practice in Boston in the 1980's.  His teaching affiliations included Tufts University and Boston University Schools of Medicine.  Chopra realized in his medical practice that there was potential in western medicine for the establishment of a new life-giving paradigm, one which encompassed the fundamental principle that perfect health is more than just the absence of disease.  He began to envision a medical system based upon the premise that health is a lively state of balance and integration of body, mind, and spirit.  He is widely credited with melding modern theories of quantum physics with the timeless wisdom of ancient cultures.  In 1992, he served on the National Institutes of Health Ad Hoc Panel on Alternative Medicine.

Chopra is known as the prolific author of more than 42 books, 100 audio, video and CD-ROM titles, which have been translated into 35 languages with over 20 million copies sold worldwide.

Deepak Chopra's popularity as an international presenter and keynote speaker is exemplified in an impressive list of honorariums.  As the keynote speaker, he appeared at the inauguration of the State of the World Forum, hosted by Mikhail Gorbachev and the Peace and Human Progress Foundation, founded by the former president of Costa Rica and Nobel Peace prizewinner Oscar Arias.  Esquire Magazine designated him as one of the top ten motivational speakers in the country; and in 1995, he joined the distinguished company of President Nelson Mandela, Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, Tom Peters and Garrison Keillor as a recipient of the Toastmasters International Top Five Outstanding Speakers award.

Through The Chopra Center, Dr. Chopra is revolutionizing common wisdom about the crucial connection between body, mind, spirit, and healing. His mission of "bridging the technological miracles of the west with the wisdom of the east" remains his thrust as he and his colleagues conduct public seminars and workshops and provide training for health care professionals around the world. Dr. Chopra is a fellow of the American College of Physicians and a member of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.
