Ask Deepak



When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


Dear Dr. Chopra, Thank you for the work you do. I am a Yoga and Meditation instructor and Yoga Therapist in Michigan. Will you speak to me about desire? This word is used differently in current and ancient texts – either as the seed of intention and creativity of higher mind origin or the root of the cravings of the lower mind (ego mind). I have read many of your books and one of my favorites is Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire. Can you bring me to clarity, please?


Desire is the creative impulse of life. Depending upon how firmly self-awareness has been established, one will either become identified or overshadowed by the desire or you will be able to maintain self-awareness and therefore remain free so that the desire becomes an expression of your spiritual evolution. The former situation is the desire you describe in terms of the ego mind, where one is attached to the outcome of the intention. When the mind is naturally unattached to desire, then it is an intention which acts as an instrument of unconditioned creativity.
