Quotes & Thoughts from Deepak Chopra

Deepak Chopra is one of the teachers, I studied with. He teaches Ayurveda, modern western medicine and spirituality. Here are some great quotes & thoughts from Deepak Chopra concerning diet and health.

Most people think that aging is irreversible. We know that there are mechanisms even in the human machinery that allow for the reversal of aging, through correction of diet, through antioxidants, through removal of toxins from the body, through exercise, through yoga and breathing techniques, and through meditation.

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.

The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years.

The possibility of stepping into a higher plane is quite real for everyone. It requires no force or effort or sacrifice. It involves little more than changing our ideas about what is normal.

Silence is the great teacher, and to learn its lessons you must pay attention to it. There is no substitute for the creative inspiration, knowledge, and stability that come from knowing how to contact your core of inner silence.

In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.
