“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.”

Deepak Chopra 



Dr. Deepak Chopra, a revered figure in the realms of spirituality, alternative medicine, and public speaking, has enriched the world with his profound wisdom and insights, reminding us that life gives you plenty of time to explore, grow, and heal. With a prolific output of over 80 books and numerous audio meditations, Chopra has ascended to become one of the most influential spiritual guides of our era. His teachings, which delve into the intricate harmony of the universe, the intertwined nature of mind, body, and soul, as well as the essence of love and the pathways to success, have profoundly impacted many of today’s prominent leaders.

Chopra’s philosophy emphasizes the unity of mind and body, advocating for meditation as a transformative practice that fosters harmony and balance within. He posits that meditation serves as a gateway to a ‘quiet zone’—a state of profound awareness that is both peaceful and deeply rooted in the present moment. This belief highlights the importance of staying present and embracing the abundant time life offers, encouraging individuals to explore the depths of their own consciousness and creativity.

In alignment with his teachings, here are a few Chopra quotes that resonate with the themes of staying in the present and recognizing the ample opportunities for growth and creativity life provides:

 1- Learn to let go:

“Holding on to anything is like holding on to your breath. You will suffocate. The only way to get anything in the physical universe is by letting go of it. Let go & it will be yours forever.”

2- You are not your Ego:

“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.”

 3- Stay still in any life situation:

“In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.”

4 – Observe your thoughts, and be open to your life possibilities:

“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.”

 5- The Universe may surprise you:

“Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined. ”

6- Find your own potential:

“According to this law [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.”

 7-The power of acceptance:

“Nothing brings down walls as surely as acceptance.”

 8- Meditate, go within and find your life purpose:

“To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions.”

 9- Be ready for the journey to self- realization.

“I was very afraid at the beginning until Master told me that pain isn’t the truth; it’s what you have to get through in order to find the truth.”

 10- All we have is THIS MOMENT:

“The present moment dies every moment to become the past, is reborn every moment into the future. All experience is now. Now never ends.”
