Deepak Chopra Quotes.

1. "The ego wants to acquire things out of insecurity, out of a sense of lack. Remind yourself that everything comes and goes except the soul. It's from the soul that a person gains a sense of inner fulfillment. The soul lacks nothing and therefore has no anxiety about the outside world: gain is not a need, loss is not a threat."
- Deepak Chopra, The Deeper Wound: Recovering the Soul from Fear and Suffering

2. "If you are full and complete in yourself, if you lack nothing, if your desires come and go easily, you will always be free. In this freedom there is total joy. You cannot be hurt, not in your true self."
- Deepak Chopra, The Deeper Wound: Recovering the Soul from Fear and Suffering

3. "Inside stillness lies a treasure. It can be opened using nothing more than silent awareness - the gaze of the soul. If you wish to open your soul's treasure, regard the present moment as a uniquely precious thing - the still point around which the world revolves."
- Deepak Chopra, The Deeper Wound: Recovering the Soul from Fear and Suffering

4. "Stored in everyone's memory are past experiences of terror. By reminding you of those feelings, fear is trying to protect you from repeating the traumas of the past. As long as you push down your fear, you will not be able to receive it as an ally. But by the same token you can't just act on the basis of fear. At the soul level you see no need for fear, because you don't need protecting. Living in the now poses no threat, and referring to the past therefore serves no purpose. It is safe to go into your fear and ask it where it came from and what it wants you to know. Having seen the world from its perspective, reassure yourself that the soul needs no guardian. Learn from fear, heal it, and ask it to leave."

5. "Light and dark appear as opposites, and we've all learned to think of them as warring enemies. Duality is based on separation, yet the soul exists in harmony with everything, even darkness. Your shadow self knows this. As it holds negative energy for you, it tries to attract your attention, not to make you afraid or enraged or vindictive, but so that you can convert those feelings into understanding. Understanding is the light."
- Deepak Chopra, The Deeper Wound: Recovering the Soul from Fear and Suffering

6. "A child raised with spiritual skills will be able to answer the most basic questions about how the universe works; she will understand the source of creativity both within and outside herself; she will be able to practice nonjudgment, acceptance, and truth, which are the most valuable skills anyone can possess for dealing with other people; and she will be free from the crippling fear and anxiety about the meaning of life that is the secret dry rot inside the hearts of most adults, whether they can admit it or not. The deepest nurturing you can give your child is spiritual nurturing."
- Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents: Guiding Your Children to Success and Fulfillment

7. "Uncertainty is fearful to the ego, which always wants to control reality, but from the viewpoint of detachment, a constantly shifting and changing universe must remain uncertain. If things were certain, there could be no creativity. Therefore spirit works through surprises and unexpected outcomes. We achieve peace of mind only when we accept the wisdom of uncertainty."
- Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents: Guiding Your Children to Success and Fulfillment

8. "A child who was taught from the age of three or four "You are here for a reason" would face a very different future. Such a child would see the search for meaning in life as a natural thing, the spiritual equivalent of learning your ABCs. There would be no years of postponement, followed by desperate inner turmoil. "Why am I here?" doesn't have to be a fearsome existential question. It is the most joyful exploration a person can undertake, and we do our children an immense favor by presenting it as such. A child who paid attention to just this one principle would have a far richer life - a more successful life - than countless adults for whom "spirit" and "God" remain forever locked in a world of abstraction."

9. "Children should also be taught that success and fulfillment come from inside, and it is only inside that matters. Each of us is responsible for how we feel, what we wish for, and how we decide to approach life's challenges. The highest responsibility is fulfilled not by doing a huge amount of work but by doing the work of spirit in an attitude of joy and creativity. This is the only way that life without struggle becomes possible."
- Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents: Guiding Your Children to Success and Fulfillment

10. "Spirit cannot fulfill any desire until you release it."
