Deepak Quotes

  • Deepak. How do we focus on what we are passionate about when we are struggling with grief or post traumatic stress disorder? I get up each day and I now have a very peaceful and good life with a loving and beautiful Husband. I am able to be creative and devote myself to the gifts I have as a painter and photographer. But I have survived a horrendously abusive childhood that I supressed until about 4 years ago. I am now 43 and I have been told by my Psychologist that I am in early menopause and suffering from PTSD... I have so many moments of peace and joy... then a scent, tone of voice or something will trigger panic inside of me and then the anxiety and pain becomes overwhelming. It would be like if I spent months painting something exisiite... then all of a sudden it turned blank or into a nightmare. Or if I was photographing a dancing Hummingbird in my Garden, but in the lense I could not see the Hummingbird, but instead I saw what I fear. I know if I focus on my gifts, peace, joy, healthy living, meditation, yoga... I will be alright. But what I really desire is to be free of the trauma from my childhood. How do I do that and be allowed to enjoy my peaceful life now? I want to be the Peace, Joy and Love I wish to see in the World... this is my desire.

  • My biggest desire..I made a Big wish today on my Birthday : nothing else than just stay healthy en enjoy my Life for a cople of years more. Enjoy the companion of my loved ones here and abroad, enjoy to be able to comfort other's where it is needed because we live in a societ where we do not realy look after one another. We should be lucky with what we have and not what we do not have. Ofcourse I dream winning the Biggest Lottery everrrr, but Compassion, Unconditional Love, Respect and mutual Understanding is not for sale ...! We should not have expectations from others or from Life in general. We should be thankful that we have good Health, a shelter above our heads, Food...physicaly and spiritualy and the rest is free..and the rest are side issues realy..! One should not have too many makes you greedy, selfish and opinio....Namaste

  • Fear is only negated by total and complete faith in G-D, have to mentally train your mind not to 'want/desire' it is a process that took years for me to achieve personally...& Awareness is just the beginning of 'things', it is useless unless you change negative behavior!

    Elan J Mackey // 2012-12-10 02:04:08 // //
  • Illusion, love is real, fear is unreal, created by the mortal mind, michael, you r sooo right! Love yourself first, start from there, trust yourself, accept self, forgive, let go of fear, you are not a victim, don't blame others, take responsibility for yourself, be in the present, the now and focus on it, creating your life, think of possibilities for yourself? Focus on it. Power it's a game, jump in and play, like a winner. Forget suffering, we aren't meant to be here to suffer either. Align self into goodness flow of life for magicked, miracles, synchronicity! God luck, all the best, love and light.

    Deb Maylath // 2012-12-10 00:47:08 // //
  • Understand this, the cause of all our fear is the lack of Love as the base of our life. The more one has Love as the minds default setting, the less fear there is and the more open we become to letting go of old ways of thinking. There is no one to blame for this fear based thinking. Learn to accept yourself exactly the way you are because, it is only the way you have been conditioned to be. When a person changes, what changes is the conditioning. You will react to life with the tools you have developed. When you learn to develop how to use different tools your fear based reactions will change. So use the tools that help you learn to Love yourself, and you will understand the only thing you fear is the fallacy that fear creates; that things are as they appear.

  • Message to Philosophers of Today, External Memory Transcending generations is what separates us from other life. No other species grows, saves, and shares knowledge externally across generations. Cave paintings were some of the first EM transcending generations. The Internet is a product of compounding generations of EM. At this time in history we brainwash children with EM. We train children to be words products of our unique EM. It is a dark day in the history of life. Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle are remembered because they were connected with a leap in communication. Never before had the world's knowledge been assembled into one place. Today we are experiencing a similar phenomena. The Internet is our leap in communication. We are the Philosophers of today. The world's knowledge is at our fingertips. It's our day to bring External Memory Awareness to the world. It is our day to remove the tinfoil EM word-hats of our species. It is our day to secure a unique relationship with future children have a Natural Right to. It is our day to end EM brainwashing and bring unity back to our beautiful world. It is our day, The Philosophers of Today. Love, Johnny Naturehack Merrill
