Independence and Security

Category:  Ask Deepak

Question:

I am not sure how I want my life to be. On one hand I want independence in what I do, but lack courage to step out and face the world. I am not unhappy but at the same time I feel this is not what I am. How do I resolve this internal conflict?

Response:

There is a wisdom inside you beyond your thinking mind that already knows how your life needs to be. If you connect with this intelligence and get your conditioned personality out to the way, it will all unfold naturally and effortlessly. The real you does not lack the courage and power to step out and face the world, that is the timid ego-self that is content with the familiarity of the status quo. All growth is a process of overcoming the security and complacency of the familiar to with the courage to create something new in your life and the world. That creative process is an assertion of independence and self-power. It requires courage because creativity means you are stepping into the unknown. But that courage is also a process of self-discovery. You find out who you are by exercising your power as an individual to act, to create, to make decisions. So you don’t need to have a clear plan for what you are and what your purpose is, that will unfold as you begin your journey into the world. Take your first step, then another, and you will soon find that the path of self-discovery, creativity and empowerment will provide its own motivation and courage.

Love,
Deepak

  • He has taken eastern philosophy, dating back 2500 years, westernised it and made so much money, when its there for free. Nothing he says is from his own making

  • @Rosemary Pigot Have you heard the phrase "dwarves standing on the shoulders of giants"? Your knowledge, my knowledge, Deepak`s knowledge all come from somewhere else, knowledge builds upon knowledge. So what if he bases his teachings on previous knowledge, he organizes and presents it to modern society in his own way, in a way that is comprehensive and concise. He makes it palatable for us to accept and understand, he brings us wisdom that we ourselves may never taken the time to research.

  • And he should, Ms. R. Pigot, continue to help as many people as he has. I thank all those who keep the ancient wisdoms, who speak it in sharing and who live it. Most physicians just give meds and send you away and are well compensated for that. How much more for someone who cares to help with more... I am learning.

  • Rosemary, it`s true what you say, but although eastern philosophy is there (and the most of the times NOT for free) Deepak`s "westernized version" of that philosophy helps to introduce us to it, and besides this, nothing that we think and say is strictly from our own, we took and take ideas and thoughts since we are childs, first from our parents, and then from other people who influenced our lives along the time. I`m so sorry to tell you that your statement is not yours at all.

  • To Rosemary Pigot... there is nothing inherently wrong with making money at all. It`s your attitude towards money and what you do with the money that matters most (remember the Bible verse says, "the LOVE of money is the root of much evil" not "money is the root of all evil" - big difference!) Plus it`s a good thing that Deepak isn`t spouting off some new-fangled spiritual framework but is trying his best to spread ancient universal truth. You should be happy about that instead of being critical, right? :) ~Jason (jasonwhowe.com)

  • You have to push past your boundaries to find them. Be bold. How to resolve the inner conflict? You don`t resolve and then once resolved then go out and do what you want to do. No, even with that inner conflict still there, you do something you want to do - even with all of that fear - and watch what happens... you accomplish it. And then you take that confidence you now have and then go do the next thing and push through the fear that is stopping you from doing THAT thing... and the cycle continues. You have to push past your boundaries to find them. Be bold! ~Jason (jasonwhowe.com)

  • I'm reading a good book by Caroline Myss called "Archetypes" that will help you get behind the ego and a little closer to that genuine self.

  • @Rosemary Pigot don`t you wish you could have done the same?! He takes that philosophy and makes it easily accessible and understandable to those who need that wisdom. So, props to Deepak. keep inspiring us!

  • There seem to be some drawbacks to trying to relax into being creative and trying new things. If, when we earnestly try, we find that we are met with disinterest, dismissal, passed over. If we try again, and find that we do not measure up, that there is someone better, yards and miles ahead, then we come back to home base feeling like a failure. We come back confused and deflated. When we are young, often we can keep trying new things, we have many friends, perhaps parents or mentors who will build us back up, who will help re-direct our efforts, our attention. So then we can begin again, try again with renewed vigor and optimism. As we age, if we find ourselves continually at the bottom of the heap, disregarded as a flop - this can lead to a disconnection so complete that it is difficult to find our true self at all. ====

    Betty Luciano // 2013-02-23 10:10:53 // //
  • Thanks. This is quite poignant in my life today. We can all benefit from the wisdom of old, as it is the wisdom of Us. It is more palatable when presented in a concise, understandable way. I am grateful there are "transition team" members spending their precious lives sharing this wisdom with the world. They are simply reflections of each one of us, and we of each other. Why not be paid well for his efforts? We are the one`s consuming his product. He`s paid well because his product is in high demand. There is a need by many to return to the Self. Namaste.

  • sometimes you cannot move forward because your subconscious mind has blocks which need to be removed, you may consider theta healing and start to remove the layers of conditioning xo

  • Actors have an advantage with this technique, especially good actors, who have the ability to put themselves into a new way of being and believing fully. Thats the key, feeling it in 'being', then it is already in reality. And that reality will help us take the next step.

    LSVoiceworks // 2013-02-22 22:46:38 // //
  • Mad I add that seeing our real self in visualization doing the thing that feels un doable is a powerful tool to overcoming the fear. Visualization is not a dream or a fantasy, it is allowing through breath and concentration to 'see' and 'feel' the new situation. Allowing that deeper self, the true self to own a new reality.

Just reading " Superbrain " at the moment and sharing it with others who don`t know the wisdom in that book yet . . . . . it is such a comfort and a lot to understand deeply . . . . that we can have positive loving intentions during dark times , and look for the treasures and learnings too from something like Alzheimers. I have to say I am very grateful for this message and your obvious authenticity in being true to your own creativity ! I need to trust my own process . . . . .

  • Mr Chopra, you have given another brilliant and insightful response. Wisdom is the way and unfortunately although it is coveted at the time of need, it is typically not sought in times of plenty. The gentleman who attributed your advice to merely following your feelings seems to confuse wisdom with feelings. The inner knowing of wisdom is always synonymous with all fundamental aspects of faith which is to demonstrate compassion to the least deserving and least acknowledged. The human participation in divinity hangs on being able to practice this type of love more often giving way to a godly perspective.

  • That's a lot. My response is 1. DIE, Get baptize in the name of farther. Jesus, and the holy spirit(The helper) REBIRTH. 2. As a new creature start studying and obeying God's laws (1st 5 books) disregard all of the once required sacrifices. Jesus is your sacrifice if you believe he is the Son of God AND believe The helper will help you fulfill Gods laws. ETERNAL LIFE

You must get so much critisicim from the public. I really enjoy your question-answer posts. There are also so many of out there that very much need your wisdom. Again I am grateful.

  • The primal progenitor created everything from himself and the best approach to understand the creation process is by embracing the most perfect human being as the final cause of not only all that is but also everything that will ever be. By accepting that the creator is indeed our own essence, the nature and intelligence of which we do not yet fully comprehend from which everything else emanates in the most logical order and flows in a magnificent synergy towards its final realization ,we then avail ourselves the skyhook of a most potent philosophy that not only enables us interrogate, explain and understand the theory of everything but also has the promise of universal peace hard wired in the very nature of its own belief.

  • I Love Deepak and his wisdom! He has helped me in my life soooo much! His Happiness Prescription is fabulous, I also Loved The Way of the Wizard, and Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. I feel so free to be happy and don't carry around all that unhappy baggage anymore <3 I am forever grateful for my Happy Life!

  • Deepak. I connected with this name with his book of Buddha. I hve read many of your books. Among all the modern-age gurus, I find two who stand apart- Deepak Chopra & Jiddu Krishnamurti. Thanks sir for trying 2 make this world a better place.

  • @rosemary, in a post of positivity u bring only negativity and self centerness. Most advice has been given before over course of history and while I'm sure he has made a living sharing the thoughts and advice of others along with his own he does at least share hope and positivity to those seeking words of encouragement. It is easier to be critical than correct when dealing with others problems, we appreciate his sharing of wisdom that is derived from a culmination of the human experience.

    Robin Hendricks // 2013-02-22 00:35:31 // //
  • Rosemary Pigot,, step down from your self created pedistal. Deepak Chopra is a reflection of wisdom, not the creator. Be enlightened, or stay in your darkmess alone.

    Robin Hendricks // 2013-02-22 00:32:07 // //
  • Lmao you can tell that @rosemary hasn't discovered her purpose, or politeness.

  • These words what I just read Deepak Chopra I have experienced in my life exactly step by step. It all happened when I first opened my palm leaves written long ago about my being. It gave this 1st energy blast just to be and believe and the rest is happening itself.

  • Perhaps god chose him as a vessel to deliver eastern philosophy to the west. Every idea already exists and has already been thought. I don't think I'll of mr. Chopra because he brings enlightening messages to those who would have otherwise never heard it. Thank you deepak.

    Monica Hollow // 2013-02-22 00:14:19 // //
  • Thought provoking. It's the point of most inspirational posts.

    Stacey Anne Bittner // 2013-02-22 00:12:51 // //
  • He has taken eastern philosophy, dating back 2500 years, westernised it and made so much money, when its there for free. Nothing he says is from his own making

  • @Rosemary - Why don't you just in follow him if you are so sick of him? You are obviously an unenlightened, attention seeking troll.

    Dean Simmons // 2013-02-22 00:06:40 // //
  • And I doubt very much that you read these comments, too busy making money and fulfilling financial commitments no doubt

    Rosemary Pigot // 2013-02-22 00:06:19 // //
