Deepak Chopra Quotes


The less you open your heart to others, the more your heart suffers.
If you create any open space within yourself, love will fill it.
Discover your own discontent, and be grateful, for without divine discontent there would be no creative force.
Uncertainty is the fertile ground of pure creativity and freedom.
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.
What does not contain love must contain an illusion.
Love doesn't need reason. It speaks from the irrational wisdom of the heart.
Love is the beginning of the journey, its end, and the journey itself.
The reason that ego and love are not compatible comes down to this: you cannot take your ego into the unknown, where love wants to lead. If you follow love, your life will become uncertain, and the ego craves certainty.
Loosen your grasp a little, and remember: whatever you hold onto is already dead, because it is past. Die to every moment and you will discover the gate to unending life.
I must see my life as a work in progress. Nothing about me is ever final.
When we begin to experience our life as the miraculous expression of divinity - not occasionally, but all the time - then we know the true meaning of success.
Your life can only be as free as your perception of it.
You can't lose anything because you never had it. The only thing you've ever really had is yourself.
When you can live with all your opposite qualities, you will be living your total self.
The path to love isn't a choice, for all of us must find out who we are. This is our spiritual destiny. The path can be postponed; you can lose faith in it or even despair that love exists. None of that is permanent; only the path is.
Up to the point when they merged, two lovers walked separate paths. Together they create a new path that has no past, where every step moves into the unknown, and no amount of experience can light the way.
From a spiritual viewpoint you are always a creator. The tiniest situation in your life is not made "out there" but "in here,", from the source of reality, which is awareness.
Negativity is born in the gap where love has been excluded.
Asking for love is one of the most difficult things for anyone to risk, and by risking it first in your heart, you open a door that will never close again.
Your desire for your spiritual goals is enough to bring them about; on your inner landscape you are already working toward them.
Spirit is passionate; without passion no one can be truly spiritual.
People who live their own love stories do not expect others to make them feel loved.
If you have your full attention in the moment, you will see only love.
Remember, in our inmost being, we are all completely lovable because spirit is love. Beyond what anyone can make you think or feel about yourself, your unconditioned spirit stands, shining with a love nothing can tarnish.
The energy born of love is creative - it makes everything it touches new. To see how passionate you are, look around at what you have created.
The reality you experience is a mirror image of your expectations.
We are here and now - That is a miracle.
Whatever the mind can conceive of must be bounded. As soon as you put words around an experience or enclose it in thought or say, "I know," something wonderful and invisible has flown away.
"Always" is never true; 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.
When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.
I have led you into the secret places of your soul, now you must find them again, this time by yourself.
Imagine for a moment your own version of a perfect future. See yourself in that future with everything you could wish for at this very moment fulfilled. Now take the memory of that future and bring it here into the present. Let it influence how you will behave from this moment on.
When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.
Respect your mystery. Nothing is more profound but pursue it ruthlessly, trying to rip the veil away at every second. This is what makes life rich, that it has more to offer with each clue it reveals.
As long as you're giving, you will be receiving.
Signals from spirit all serve the same purpose; to give you back your life as a creator.
