Freedom from Desires.


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


Hey Deepak, I'm reading your book "How to Know God" because, well, I want to know God. In your book it that in order to really know God you must reach a point of enlightenment in which you are free from the desires and cares of this world. I love having desires. I love food and sex and technology. I don't want to be a boring person. How can I know God and still enjoy the material world with my friends and family?


Freedom from desires means you are free from the limiting or binding influence of desire, it doesn’t mean you do not have desires or likes and dislikes Even when we become free from identification from desires and objects of perception, we still maintain a personality and our own individuality and interests. Enlightenment is not boring, being stuck in the rut of ignorance is boring.
So having desires is not the problem, we want to realize our true nature that lies beyond our thoughts and desires, so that we desire and create and enjoy life in freedom.

    I`m a man with an ordinary mind and an ordinary education, I have a big problem of getting lost if great people like Deepak Chopra also use misleading words like god to refer to the source energy or the state of pure consciousness.How can ordinary people ever get enlightened if modern spiritualists are still held in the grip of using such idiotic and/or manipulative religious terminologies???
