    Masturbation

    Category:  Ask Deepak

    Question:

    I love your work, you are an inspiration to my friends and I. I'm a young male pursuing my dreams right now and am having a hard time dealing with the issue of masturbation. I feel great when I go for weeks and months without it, but I've always ended up succumbing to society’s notion that it’s a completely natural and necessary thing to do. The next day afterwards I always feel physically weak. It’s no longer a "guilt" issue or anything like that...I actually feel physically exhausted and feel a lack of motivation. I've been looking into how to channel my energy upwards and this has been something I've been getting better at over the past year, I feel like I don't ever want to masturbate again and the next time I let go of my energy it will be after I've made significant progress towards my goals and when I've found another like-minded partner. What do you think about this issue and how sacred our fluids are?

    The Conscious Lifestyle: Facing Your Stress

    Category:  Health

    This article was originally published on Linkedin.

    I don't want to open the vast discussion of stress that now exists, except to make two limited points. 1. Stress isn't good for you. 2. The vast majority of people do not deal with their stress effectively. Coming to grips with these two things is important for anyone who wants to create a conscious lifestyle. To be aware is to be open, alert, ready to meet unknown challenges, and capable of fresh responses. When you are under stress, these qualities are compromised. Raise the stress high enough and they are reversed. The mind closes down as an act of self-defense. In that state it is very difficult to be alert and open.

    But stress is bad for you in far more basic ways. The hormones that are released in the body's stress response, such as cortisol and adrenaline, are meant to be temporary. Their effect is to galvanize the fight-or-flight response, which is triggered in a primitive area of the brain, because fight-or-flight is an inheritance from our pre-human past. In the stress response, a privileged pathway is opened for dealing with emergencies, while at the same time the brain's higher responses are temporarily suppressed.

    What Is a Spiritual Solution?

    Category:  Spirituality

    Excerpted from my book Spiritual Solutions: Answers to Life’s Greatest Challenges


    No one will disagree that life brings challenges, but step back for a moment and ask the deeper question, which is why. Why is life so difficult? No matter what advantages you are born with— money, intelligence, an appealing personality, a sunny outlook, or good social connections— none of these provides a magic key to an easy existence. Somehow life manages to bring difficult problems, the causes of untold suffering and struggle. How you meet your challenges makes all the difference between the promise of success and the specter of failure. Is there a reason for this, or is life simply a random series of events that keeps us off balance and barely able to cope?

    A Personal Note

    Category:  Relationships , Spirituality

    Excerpted from my book Spiritual Solutions: Answers to Life’s Greatest Challenges

    Ever since my first days as a doctor, forty years ago, people have asked for answers. A medical treatment was what they wanted, but the reassurance and comfort that human contact could bring was just as valuable, perhaps even more so. Unless he’s completely burned out, a physician sees himself as a rough- and- ready savior, yanking victims out of danger into a state of safety and well- being.

    I’m grateful for my years seeing patients, because I learned the difference between advice and solutions. People who are in trouble are rarely helped by advice. Crises don’t wait; something very bad will happen if the right solution isn’t found.

    I kept the same standard in mind when writing this book. It began with people writing me with troubles on their minds. Their letters were sent from around the world— at one point I was answering questions daily or weekly from India, the United States, and many other locales, mostly through the Internet. Yet in a sense everyone was writing from the same place inside, where confusion and darkness had overwhelmed them. These people were hurt, betrayed, abused, misunderstood, ill, worried, anxious, and at times desperate. Sadly, that is the human condition, almost permanently for some people, but these feelings are always possible for people who are happy and contented— for the moment.

    Depression: Shedding Light On The Darkness

    Category:  Health

    It’s not news that depression has become a kind of invisible epidemic, afflicting millions of people. We live at a time when depression is approached as a disease. That has a good side. Depressed people are not judged against as weak or self-indulgent, as if they only need to try harder to lift themselves out of their sadness. Yet depression, for all the publicity surrounding it, remains mysterious, and those who suffer from it tend to hide their condition – the medical model hasn’t removed a sense of shame. When you’re in the throes of depression, it’s hard to escape the feeling that you are a failure and that the future is hopeless.
