Inspiration from Deepak Chopra

I have to be completely honest, I had never heard of Deepak Chopra until I read The Magic by Rhonda Byrne. 

But who is Deepak Chopra? 

This is what I have read, Deepak Chopra is:
  • World-Renowned Mind-Body Healing Pioneer
  • Founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing in Carlsbad, California
  • Spiritual Philosopher
  • Writer
  • Alternative Medicine Practitioner
  • Physician
  • Public Speaker
  • Writer
  • Holistic Health/New Age Guru

Wilkipedia has this to say about Dr. Chopra: "He is a controversial figure. According to a 2008 article in Time magazine, he is "a magnet for criticism", primarily from those involved in science and medicine. His critics accuse him of creating a false sense of hope in sick individuals which may keep them away from effective medical care.

Chopra has written more than 65 books, including 19 New York Times bestsellers. His books have been translated into 35 languages and sold more than 20 million copies worldwide. Chopra has received many awards, including the Oceana Award (2009), the Cinequest Life of a Maverick Award (2010), Humanitarian Starlite Award (2010), and the GOI Peace Award (2010).

I would like to share a quote by Deepak Chopra.  “To experience gratitude is the most effective way of getting in touch with your soul. When you are in touch with your soul you eavesdrop on the wisdom of the universe. You feel connected to everything in creation. You embrace the wisdom of uncertainty and you sense your Self as a field of infinite possibilities. Gratitude is the most effective way of getting there. The reason is because when you are experiencing gratitude, ego moves out of the way. You can’t have ego and gratitude at the same time, Only one.”
