Meeting Deepak Chopra

On Monday I had the wonderful pleasure of seeing Deepak Chopra speak personally at a seminar in London.

For those who don’t know who Deepak Chopra is, he is a medical doctor by profession but over the years has fused eastern medicine with quantum physics and has developed his own philosophy on the mind-body-spirit connection. He has written over 50 books in which he very wonderfully and succinctly explains the connections in a way which even a child could understand.

His talk was lively, entertaining and very informative. He shared some very interesting facts about the make up of the human body and how within two years every atom in our body is completely replaced and so in essence; we are completely different. So what is it that retains the information that allows me to still know myself as Amit Sodha? 😉

During the talk we had a brief 10 minute meditation in which all we did was repeat the words to ourselves in silence “I am”. So simple and yet it was so powerful. It also reminded me of a blog post in my ‘100 Days of Wisdom‘ series from day 2.

I was so engrossed in his discussion that I didn’t take many notes but he did share 15 thoughts at the end which I wanted to also share here too. I was scribbling as fast as I could and so I believe I captured all the messages correctly but if you think I missed something please do let me know.

1) There are hidden dimensions to our existence

Jesus – The Kingdom of Heaven is within you.

2) The world is in you

Jesus – Be the world and not of it.

3) There are 4 paths to unity

Jesus – For my yoke is easy and my burden is light

4) All fulfillment comes from within

Jesus – Ask and you will receive

5) Suffering is the result of not knowing the true reality

Jesus – Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us

6) Freed comes from choiceless awareness

Be still and know that I am god

7) The world is a mirror of the self

Jesus – As you sow, so shall you reap

8 ) Evil is not our enemy , evil is the personal and collective shadow

Jesus – Resist not evil

9) You live in multi dimensions

Jesus – In my fathers house there are many mansions

10) Death makes life possible

Jesus – You must be born from above

11) The universe thinks through you

Jesus – You are the light of the world

12) The only time is now

Jesus – You are the light of the world

13) You are truly free when you are not a person; we all exist in consciousness

14) Consciousness conceives, governs, constructs and becomes reality through synchronicity, self interaction and karmic connections.

Jesus – For where there are two or three gathered in my name – I will be there

15) The goal of life is unity consciousness and transcending the limitations of space, time and causality.

Jesus – What does it profit a man to gain the world and to lose his soul.

If you didn’t get to see him this time join me in setting a very powerful intention for him to return in the very near future! 😀

    Hi Amit,

    Many thanks for posting your notes from the DC seminar in London. I attended the same seminar, only in Copenhagen, but forgot to bring my paper and pen.

    So many thanks for this :-)))

    Hi Ann Sophie,

    Great to hear from you! My pleasure. Do you live in Copenhagen?

    When did you go and see him and what points do you remember from his talk?

    With love,

    Hi Amit,

    Yes, I live in Copenhagen. Deepak visited us on April 9th I think. It was a great evening.

    Oh…I remember lots of points from this evening but even more the feeling of “coming home”. The words he spoke about happiness that lies within us and not anywhere else (work, relationship….). The fact that we all have a potential of being like Jesus if only we could see beyond our ego. Also, I loved his point about interconnectivity and his excellent match of spirituallity and science. In that respect I’ve read lots about his movement “Alliance for a New Humanity” and was wondering why there isn’t a similar hub of this in Europe?

    Hello Amit,

    Thanks so much for this write up. I often read or listen to Deepak and would love to one day hear him speak live (in fact I will sometime). I believe Deepak to be one of the most evolved souls around.

    With love and blessings

  5. Amit Sodha says:

    Hi Ann Sophie,

    I too loved the point about interconnetivity and is infact my point of vision for today. “We are individual and yet at the same time we are indivisible! Did you hear him share the story about his Father and when he passed away?



  6. Amit Sodha says:

    Hi Anna,

    Indeed he is! I’m certain you will get a chance to see him speak live and to also get the chance to meet and speak with him too! 🙂

    With love,

    Hey, thanks so much for posting the 15 things! I went last night to Deepak Chopra in Perth, Western Australia, but didn’t write anything down. You’re a legend!

  8. Amit Sodha says:

    Hey Molly,

    I’m so glad you got to see him life and glad that you found the points useful, that was there purpose.

    Thanks for the comment and lovely to make contact.
