Pinnable Deepak Chopra Quote #4

“I’ve worked all my life on the subject of awareness, whether it’s awareness of the body, awareness of the mind, awareness of your emotions, awareness of your relationships, or awareness of your environment. I think the key to transforming your life is to be aware of who you are.”

“The first step toward change is recognition. Recognize that you have had at least a few hopes and wishes come true.”

Pinnable Deepak Chopra Quote #5

“When we seek money, or a good relationship, or a great job, what we are really seeking is happiness. The mistake we make is not going for happiness first. If we did, everything else would follow.”

“Nothing is more important than reconnecting with your bliss. Nothing is as rich, nothing is more real.”

“Not every sky will be blue and not every day is springtime. So on the spiritual path a person learns to find this kind of happiness without needing nice things to happen on the outside. Rather, you find happiness by being who you really are. This isn’t mystical. Young children are happy being who they are. The trick is to regain such a state when you are grown and have seen the light and dark sides of life.”

“I teach people that no matter what the situation is, no matter how chaotic, no matter how much drama is around you, you can heal by your presence if you just stay within your center.”

Deepak Chopra Healing Quotes

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

“But the real secret to lifelong good health is actually the opposite: Let your body take care of you.”

“Pain is not the same as suffering. Left to itself, the body discharges pain spontaneously, letting go of it the moment that the underlying cause is healed. Suffering is pain that we hold on to. It comes from the mind’s mysterious instinct to believe that pain is good, or that it cannot be escaped, or that the person deserves it.”

“If you restore balance in your own self, you will be contributing immensely to the healing of the world.”

Pinnable Deepak Chopra Quote #6

“In societies where mature workers are respected and where their wisdom is respected, everybody benefits. Workers are more engaged and productive. Their health is better. They live longer.”

“There are enough chemical clues to convince anyone that mood, beliefs, expectations, fears, memories, habits, —all centered in the mind—are critical to a person’s health.”

“But the placebo effect isn’t some mysterious response to a sugar pill. It is the robust and measurable effect of three components: the body’s natural ability to heal, the patient mindset, and the social context. When we start to see the placebo effect for what it really is, we can stop discounting it as medically superfluous and can harness its underlying components to improve health care.”

“The healthiest response to life is joy.”

“He checked himself out of the hospital and into a hotel and began taking extremely high doses of vitamin C while exposing himself to a continuous stream of humorous films. Within six months he was back on his feet. His story baffled the scientific community.”

Pinnable Deepak Chopra Quote #7

“Complaining increases tension and anger. As a display of hostility, it encourages other people to act hostile in return.”

“Think positive.”

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

“The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.”

“If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.”

“An intention synchronistically organizes its own fulfillment.”

“Before a brain can register a thought, a mind must think it… every step of the way is mind over matter… We override our brains all the time.”

“When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.”

“If we’re having a single thought of violence or hatred against anyone in the world at this moment, we are contributing to the wounding of the world.”
