Quotes by Deepak Chopra

Deepak Chopra is an Indian-born, American physician and writer. Chopra has taught at the medical schools of Tufts University, Boston University and Harvard University.  Chopra has written more than 65 books with 19 New York Times bestsellers. His books have been translated into 35 languages and sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.

Here are some great quotes from this wise man:

The less you open your heart to others, the more your heart suffers.

You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices. 

There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle. 

Nothing is more important than reconnecting with your bliss. Nothing is as rich. Nothing is more real. 

If you and I are 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. 

You can free yourself from aging by reinterpreting your body and by grasping the link between belief and biology. 

In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.
Every person is a God in embryo. Its only desire is to be born.
Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there -buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.
Each of us is here to discover our true Self, that essentially we are spiritual beings who have taken manifestation in physical form, that we're not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences, that we're spiritual beings that have occasional human experiences.
Success in life could be defined as the continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals. 
In our imaginations we believe that love is apart from us. Actually there is nothing but love, once we are ready to accept it. When you truly find love, you find yourself.

The law of giving is very simple: if you want joy, give joy.  If love is what you seek, offer love.  If you crave material affluence, help others become prosperous.
