Superbly presented. I understood all he talked of however, I feel that I 'grasped' a much deeper understanding through is explanations it has also helped me to understand more of myself, where I am and why I often feel the way I do. His advice of techniques and methods to work through this is invaluable. Gratitude.

Just saw him two weeks ago, and saw him back then. This was a more passionate Deepak. Now, seems like he is going thru the motions, and making more money than ever.

Well, just as we are not the same person that we were 8 years ago, neither is Deepak. He talks about exactly this in the video... :-)

A most inspiring presentation by Deepak Chopra and how great it would be if it would be taught in school for young people to hear. It touches your heart
and I am so thankful for being able to watch such programs on GAIAM - what a great treat.

Thank you Deepak for your time and energy to help induce an awareness necessary for a change in consciousness. I'am truly grateful for your assistance in helping the one life turn towards its natural state of happy awareness! I gratefully continue to practice a state of being brought on by spiritual lessons due to the universal connection of all things. the law of impermanence is a simple concept that i wish to develop a deeper understanding and acceptance of to further a shift in my own perceptions and a state of non-attachment so that i can be the change i wish to see. Recently my life has been led to learning to practice being an example of positive actions and and right speech to help sustain an outward emanation of love, compassion, Joy, Truth, tolerance and forgiveness. Thanks again for being a positive example of spiritual living which all who seek can look up to.

There was so much in an hour and a half of wisdom, guidance, compassionate observation and humour. Following this is a lifetime of commitment.

I have been studying and practicing mindfulness for just a few months now, and found this video to be very helpful. He offers some new perspectives and great anecdotes to make this mindset more attainable. I highly recommend this. Thank you!

Deepak is a gifted, charismatic communicator.

Loved it. I found myself laughing, nodding my head in agreement, and wanting to learn more. His presentation style is that of a true teacher, no ego, just a desire to share his wisdom

I just love the way this man puts it down- so intelligent and so very funny. Much blessings to you Mr Chopra

Delivers a very inspirational and timely message as usual and really personalizes it in a question and answer session with practical insights. I'm glad GAIAMTV has the free offers and surely others will get the opportunity to see it without cost, yet it's still a great value and a priceless convenience to have a program like this here. Way to go!

trebla, posted on June 13, 2012

I would watch and enjoy his message as much as I learned from hismany books. But I have to pay; the message is available only to those who have the money. Paying for our personal growth not only reflects capitalism now encrusted in spiritual tools but also defies spirituality itself by not sharing unconditionnally truths with others. What a paradox!

I enjoyed it very much.. I hope that much of what he says will stay with me....

Sassy263, posted on April 6, 2012

I enjoyed this video. The Q&A at the end was my favorite part

I totally enjoyed this talk with Deepak Chopra. Follow his 10 keys and you'll be enjoying a much happier, fulfilling life. Love his sense of humor.

If people listened to this guy as much as they watched TV the world would be today where it is already headed-transformed. it was powerful and moving, it puts the purpose of everyone into perspective and gives ways to know who we really are

Tonya, posted on December 28, 2011

Outstanding! Brilliant! I especially enjoyed the Q & A, embracing the collective narrative holistically, and the release of negative emotion , as well as how to cultivate healthy relationships. The best, ever!

Are we a speck of dust? I do not beleive so! I used to be acutely mentally ill. I was recently told by my therapist that I no longer display any of the criteria for Borderline Personality Disorder. I am much happier now than I have ever been throughout my life! I took 15 years to aquire BPD. But about 40 years to work my way past that. My point is that we have choices in how we address the world around us. We can do this with a great attitude or a bad one. The choice is yours. Lastly, I do not believe that we are but a speck of dust! Why? Because of the fact that we live in a world where we have a modicum of control over our own lives!!!

chrissy4605, posted on September 15, 2016

What are your thoughts like? They are what ever YOU want them to be. If your attitude sucks, change it. It may not be easy to change your attitude, if so get some help. I am in the process of transforming my attitude from being mentally ill to being happier, more balanced, and more serene! I pray that you can do the same thing, no matter where you are coming from.

chrissy4605, posted on September 15, 2016

Mindfulness. The act of non-judgementally of looking within to observe yourself. With that knowledge you can make better choices in how you interact with yourself and others. With that we can all transform into the ideal person we would like for ourselves.

chrissy4605, posted on September 15, 2016

Conciousness is the basis of who we are. Your thoughts are little more than how you express your consciousness.

jzravina, posted on August 27, 2016

Awesome presentation! This will definitely go to my playlist and will watch again and again. May God bless you more, Deepak. Namaste. <3

Laughter is an endemic part of mine and my husband's life. I have grown so much laughing with him! Given that we are extremely smart I find it amazing that we can have heady discussions ona myriad of subjects and still find the time to laugh many times a day. I find this kind of video to be highly insightful. He on the other hand thinks it is all "Mumbo-Jumbo". Slowly I will lead him to a new way of thinking about his self and how he can improve his life!

chrissy4605, posted on September 14, 2016

Consciousness is who we are in the grand scene of our and every thing's being in our lives. What I mean by this is that we are connected by every molecule down to the level of the absolute smallest particle within the molicule. And this connects us to this planet as far out as the universe and as far in as the atoms that are the basic building blocks of every organism from when time began to the end of our time when the process begins all over again.
