So many voices in the world. All clamoring to be heard. Believe this. Believe that. Follow me I know where I am going? Hmmm.
I spend my spare time, dining from what we call the Spiritual Buffet. Some of this, and a bit of that. One of the most interesting people I have been running into over and over is Deepak Chopra. Dr. Chopra is a very accomplished man, with many books, tv show appearances, and contributions to the evolution of mankind on a global level. He probably has Oprah's home number...
I was so excited and surprised when I learned he was coming to a university right around the corner from me. How could I resist? I didn't...
Today Shade and I were lucky enough to hear Deepak lecture live. If you think his books blow your mind, give him an hour to talk about Healing and Wellness.
I will say I had a chuckle in the morning. Prior to going to see him live, I watched his live pod cast. I usually appreciate them, and they get me moving. Today, he said... "I am here in Pittsford, Pennsylvania..."
I started laughing as he is clearly tired, and does not know he is New York. Eh, we are all human, and have all been there.
We got there, of course I bought a new book to read, "The Seven Laws to Spiritual Success". I plan to keep it in my purse for quick reference . We then got seated, and the show began. Deepak came out and what can I say he basically blew everyone's minds with his interconnected consciousness.
When Deepak stepped out, the grogginess from his travel disappeared.
Deepak as funny and quick witted, cracking jokes as he went along. There was so much in what he said, so many levels. I looked at Shade and said how will I ever encapsulate all this. She wisely said, what did you walk away with? This is one of the reasons I adore her.
What I walked away with.
Deepak had many slides talking about super genes, healing and illness. He discussed the human as an environment of the soul. Different pieces talking to each other, maintaining homeostasis. Each saying, I am in balance. So. what happens when we are out of balance? You are angry, full of hate, or stress. This speeds up the aging process, and sends your health into a tail spin. So, get those feelings and emotions under check.
He stated that 95 percent of all diseases can be connected to stress. Only 5 percent are caused by an organic gene mutation. WOW!!! He also said that when we are stressed our genes shrink, causing aging. When we meditate we actually reverse the affects of aging.
Now, that is something to chew on. We are made of stars. I had always suspected, but now there is proof we are bits and pieces of so many galaxies, that came down to ground in this human form.
Lastly, Deepak discussed human energy fields, and said if we emit peace, and love non-verbally we are promoting it. We give it off to others in their energy fields, we all over lap. So OWN YOUR OWN ENERGY... and what you bring to an environment.
Deepak's main message was that we can heal ourselves our cells are always being reborn. If we balance the things we need, we will restore health. He listed the five Pillar's of Physical Well Being.
1. Sleep, 2. Meditation and Stress Management, 3. Movement, 4. Emotions, 5. Nutrition
Keeping these in balance keeps a health system for your soul to be grounded in. Since, the body is always changing, the chance to heal is there. We finished the lecture off with Deepak leading a Guided Meditation, which brought everyone present to a collective understanding that being aware, being present are key to knowing who you are. I will have to say, the only wish I had was that it was longer, and that I could meet him and pick his brain. I love when someone gives my brain candy, I just want more. Deepak gave me brain as well as soul candy for sure. This is why he is Deepak, and why we love him so.
