Spiritual Thinkers: Deepak Chopra

Would you recognize a miracle if you saw one? Most people dismiss the most extraordinary events that take place in their lives as coincidences. The mistake we often make is not taking a closer look at our lives so that we can get a glimpse of the miracles that occur on a daily basis – in the most obvious and unexpected ways.

Dr. Deepak Chopra has been writing about miracles, spirituality and diverse topics in mind-body medicine for more than 20 years. He is considered one of the pioneers of the New Thought Movement that has embraced America in recent years. Influenced primarily by the teachings of Vedanta, the Bhagavad Gita and Jiddu Krishnamurti, his experience as an M.D. of Internal Medicine gives Chopra a respectable range of health subjects to draw upon, which he does with a great degree of enthusiasm.

His contributions to ideas around self-healing have been the basis for theories that have shown up in holistic documentaries, feature films and popular talk shows throughout the world. His Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California, is rated among the finest spiritual education facilities in the world (it even has plans to open new locations in other major cities and countries soon).

Your deepest desire
To experience what Chopra refers to as the “spontaneous fulfillment of desire” in every moment means letting go of old ideas and embracing the present with love and enthusiasm. This idea is the central lesson of Chopra’s message, which he delivers to millions of people on a daily basis. Chopra does not believe in meaningless coincidences. “Miracles happen every day,” he writes. “Not just in remote country villages or at holy sites halfway across the globe, but here, in our own lives.” For example, a person might get laid off from what was once considered a dream job and fall into a depressed state of mind about the loss. If, however, the person sees the event as a “miracle” chances are that same person will find an even more fulfilling career opportunity if that person is looking for the miracle to manifest.

Chopra contends that miracles surround us and manifest from hidden sources all the time but most of us are not awakened to our inner purpose to take notice of them. Ascribing these miracles to mere coincidences, keeps most of us trapped in states of anxiety and attached to victim-driven identities that keep us from discovering our life purpose. Chopra teaches that if we recognize everything that happens to us as a potentially life-altering event we can awaken spiritually and discover the most extraordinary things about being alive.

When you live your life with an appreciation of coincidences and their meanings, you connect with the underlying field of infinite possibilities. Chopra calls this state “synchrodestiny” where it becomes possible to achieve the spontaneous fulfillment of our every desire. Whether it is to reverse the aging process (as he suggests in his book Ageless Body, Timeless Mind) through quantum science, or overcoming trauma through the repetition of positive affirmations (The Deeper Wound), Chopra consistently challenges his readers to “get out of the box” of conditioned preconceived thoughts and open up to new ideas where all the magic begins.

Find your purpose
Finding your purpose and noticing miracles requires understanding the profound nature of things, recognizing the wellspring of intelligence that endlessly creates the universe, and yet embraces the intention to pursue specific opportunities for positive change. The most important stage of living “synchrodestiny” occurs when you become fully aware of the interrelatedness of all things, how each event in all our lives affects the other.

In Chopra’s world miracles happen every day, every hour and every minute of our lives. At this moment, the seeds of a perfect destiny lie dormant within you. His intention is to help you sprout those seeds so that you can live a life that is more wondrous than any dream you ever imagined.
