Relating to Others.


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


 Hi Deepak,

I’ve been on the journey of spiritual awareness, self-discovery, and self-love for at least a year now. However, the people around me, including relatives and existing friends, have no interest in these things and invest little time in what I deem very important areas. How do I interact with them in a healthy way when we now operate on different principles? I find it difficult to have healthy, reciprocal, fulfilling relationships with people who lack spiritual awareness, self-awareness, and healthy self-esteem.

Thanks for any insight you might share.


Relate to them on the level of the heart. The emotional connection will allow you to remain in a uplifting and nourishing space even if on the level of beliefs and ideas you have grown apart. If you focus on love, the other stuff won’t matter so much.

    Dear Deepak, I am trying to recover from the discovery that my husband of 20 years carried out three sexual affairs in the past four years. He has apologized, entered counseling with me and done everything right once the whole sordid story came out. (It took about 4 months from beginning to end to get the whole thing into the open.) I want to forgive him for the sake of our family but I am finding forgiveness to be exceedingly difficult. I cannot let go of the betrayal and utter deceit that I was completely unaware of. I was profoundly moved by your book The Path to Love. I want to find that love of and for myself. Have you written about finding love after infidelity? Or how to forgive such a heartbreaking betrayal? Any help you have would be appreciated.

    In trying to understand.... I have been trying to be in this journey but it seems that THIS IS WHAT IT IS, MY JOURNEY not anybody else's. Your response tells me that the people that are worth pursuing (worrying or 'caring' about) in your life are the people that you love and vice-versa. In other words, anybody else is not worth my time, and certainly I don't mean this in a sarcastic way, I just mean it in the way I live my life. Cynical, tired, disappointed and ready to be happy, with no luggage.

    Good answer--love changes all. Love finds the good in others and never dwells on their downfalls. All people have their own interests--it is up to the individual how much time he/she chooses to relate with anothers interests. People who relate well with your interests are the people who have the same interests at the same levels of interest you do. Have a good day Sir!
