All There Is To Know

Category:  Ask Deepak

Question:

Can we know all there is to know? Will there be any limit of knowledge? And if we can use 10-15% brain, so don’t you think our concept of God is from that small usage of our mind? I would highly appreciate your answer.

Response:

Our limited concept of God is related to our limited self-awareness, not our brain as such. There may a limit on our capacity to store and remember information, but the only limit on our capacity to understand and gain knowledge is only limited by our state of consciousness.

Love,
Deepak

  • Dear Chopra, I agree with you... but the only limit on our capacity to understand and gain knowledge is our state of understanding that is developed according to our natural gifts of embracing knowledge. Science and philosophie are the oldest partnership and none of them make any sence alone.

  • Deepak, how awareness/consciousness is different from accumulation of information in the brain. Does our awareness increase with increasing knowledge gained through sensory perception ??? If so, is it essential that all of knowledge stay in our memory as information to keep up aware ???

    Babu Devnarayan // 2013-02-07 13:48:17 // //
  • That makes sense--in order to move beyond the day to day problems one must think outside the box--push the limits of the unknown--shake up the system

  • TRADUCCION: pregunta: Hola Deepak Mi pregunta es ¿podemos saber todo lo que hay que saber? ¿Habrá algún límite del conocimiento. Y si podemos utilizar un 10-15% del cerebro, por lo que no te parece nuestro concepto de Dios es de que el uso reducido de nuestra mente? Yo agradecería su respuesta. respuesta: Nuestro concepto limitado de Dios tiene que ver con nuestra limitada conciencia de sí mismo, no nuestro cerebro como tal. Es posible que haya un límite en la capacidad de almacenar y recordar información, pero el único límite de nuestra capacidad para comprender y adquirir conocimiento es limitado solamente por nuestro estado de conciencia.

  • Dear Deepack, last night I dreamed about you. Sleep was a social gathering seemed so. with the nuns of the Teresian where I work. That is were the sisters, me and you were a guest. This is what little I can say here. That meaning may have this dream?. I ask. Gisela saluditos.

    Gisela Farias // 2013-02-07 10:22:43 // //
  • Estimada Deepack, anoche soñe con Usted. fue un sueño de reunion social parecia asi. con las religiosas del teresiano donde yo trabaje. Es decir estaban las religiosas, mi persona y usted era un invitado. Esto es lo poco que le puedo decir por aca. Que significado pueda tener este sueñ?. le pregunto. saluditos Gisela.

    Gisela Farias // 2013-02-07 10:22:38 // //
  • Thanks Dr. Chopra.

  • The only limits we have have concerning God or ourselves are the ones we put on ourselves.

    Kathy Parker // 2013-02-07 09:18:17 // //
  • The creator does not intervene in our lives what so ever. It is insane to imply he does as in most all religions. Why do religions do that? Because they are con men and they know it gives them all the power, over us, in the only world that matters. This one. Because once you grant that there has been a revelation of god to some humans, some times, in some places, to be interpreted by men, then the next thing you will find is that you are being told what to do, what to eat, what you can read, who you can sleep with and in what positions, etc. And it will be done by someone who is no better a human than yourself. Who claims the right to run your life and your sex life and your mind and your reading matter in the name of god. The idea that any man can claim to know what god is thinking and what he wants from us should be an insult to a human mind. Also, the idea that we can kneel, bow our heads and pray to god for something and he will alter his grand plan for the universe just for us is not only crazy, but a little egotistical.

  • Thank you so much Dr Deepak:-)

    Elena Torres // 2013-02-07 08:27:30 // //
  • The concept of a supreme being is found in our hearts not our minds, the ego wants one to believe that one can exist without any higher state of being in the mind. However if one meditates one will see that we are not our minds but we are of heart and soul and cannot live peacefully in a separated state of being.

  • The real answer to the question. Lives deep inside each and everyone. Of us. It is up to each individual to make their own concious decision on the moral. Answer to which God has already provided by the light he shines on you.......

  • If we all had a large portion/percentage of "Goodness" in our brains, this world would be a better place. No matter what, currently our world is so obsessed with POWER, our country lusting money, sex, and politics-push through the other side! Faith is a great key. xo

    Ann Schoonman // 2013-02-06 23:37:33 // //
  • Given a limited state of consciousness and understanding, isn't that why we all seek to know the meaning of a higher power?

    Evan Yadeski // 2013-02-06 23:27:17 // //
  • maybe we are using more of our brain than they think!!!

  • Hey six pack! After studying quantum theory for some time I've decided to try and fly. After meditating on a glass of grape kool aid, I froze it and the crystals looked like the image of the virgin Mary. None of this is repeatable, but it is enough to make me try and fly. Thanks.

  • while reading the question i never thought that the answer could be so short yet so definite. <3

  • there is nothing to know, to know something it implies a knower. The knower itself is a thought.

  • In terms of our state of consciousness -- Can God be contained within the walls of "us" whoever we may be? We are necessarily "less" than God (and the same) bowing in reverence and humility, searching for arms of tranquility and the joy of being. In my religion, God is considered to be the ultimate "good king," royalty. Read my experiential poem, "Baby Robin" at AwakenArts.com

  • Why would"god" give us a brain, and then only allow the average person to use a small percentage of brain power- makes absolutely no sense!

    Steve Goldfield // 2013-02-06 22:46:58 // //
  • I thought it was a fallacy that only 10% of the brain is used..I know 60% is fat..but, for example, Einstein's brain..(he said that he uses 5% of his brain, the average person used 2%..which he was kidding)..he had a 35% bigger math and science area and a space in his neocortex for neurons to fire more rapidly(plus he was a dreamer/napper...feeding the subconscious...)..am I wrong in my research..(Praxis now-Assaraff-Dr Joe Dispenza...etc)..curious..(I finally woke up at age 49..and am finally using my IQ..(yay me)..but...

  • Plus the whole ten percent thing of brain power is a myth. The brain does not work that way, look it up.

    Hector Coe // 2013-02-06 22:42:48 // //
  • Nights Buaenas Dr, I agree with your answer, it is brain size or usability thereof is nuestar attitude, acceptance wing against the love and power of God infinitesimal in each, the size of each person's God is the size capacity to act and live, or digamolo easiest FE of each. We limit our consciousness by limiting development in ourselves the ability to open up to a better world to understand beyond the obvious

    Jose Reinaldo Martinez // 2013-02-06 22:42:43 // //
  • The brain-mind functions both with a quantum and classic side to it, but this is not dualism. The quantum self can know all there is to know but the classic self is limited by the brain so to speak.
