Rash Actions and Regret

Category:  Deepak Quotes

If you are too impulsive, your anger, fear, and desire will run out of control. This leads to rash actions and regret afterward. If you control your impulses too much, your life becomes cold and repressed. This leads to lack of bonding with others and with your own basic drives.

  • I like that. Trying to apply Curse in Miracles I found we can repressed our selfs too much. We can no live for the body, but we are a human beings and we have to enjoy our life.

    Luz Montes // 2013-04-24 22:18:58 // //
  • I like to think that I am a balance between the two and that it also depends on the situation. Some situations require a touch of impulse and some situations require a touch of control. I believe that either extreme is not a balanced or healthy state to be in. Neither reflect the true self.

    Mimi Luk // 2013-04-22 03:20:45 // //
  • Its all in a balanced life use your decisions and avtions wisely.. Hard for alot of people so they should read this and learn!

  • So what should we do huh? Deepak Chopra=HOAX!!! He is making millions from stealing wisdom from the bible and using cryptic phrases to lure confused and shallow people into further nothingness. Everything he is saying and even millionaire Rhonda Byrnes( the secret) is taken from the BIBLE. Y'all should wake up smell the coffee. I like him cos he is smart. Smart people make money from foolish people.

  • I'll agree Nina that expressing your inner passion, hobbies and activities are enjoyable, and can have very positive effects, they cannot substitute mindful intent.

    Shannon O'Neill // 2013-04-21 13:56:45 // //
  • not a balance, not a mix, but to embrace your emotions as a part of your life, being able to express yourself, even if it is only TO yourself. More dancing, singing, and painting and drawing pictures, going to a poetry reading, taking a book out from the library, learning a craft from someone you know, gardening, baking, whatever is your outlet, be creative!!!

    Nina Hanson Tüyel // 2013-04-21 13:30:59 // //
  • striking that balance takes a lot of practice... meditation is a wonderful teacher.

    Shannon O'Neill // 2013-04-21 13:30:47 // //
  • What if it seems others try to extinguish your light with negative energy each move you make. Which then appears to others that you do things impulsively, but in actuality you are just trying to express your views before they slap you down for having a different view point then the norm in your circle?

    Rebecca Mae Lipski-Evans // 2013-04-21 13:29:31 // //

  • To be neither of those two may lead to a responsive life, instead of a reactionary, (impulsive) life. Living a life of (self control) may lead to constant implosions, that creates numerous medical problems, and may also reverse itself into explosions. Either way suffering occurs.....Peace and Love.......:) <3

    Kitty Atwood // 2013-04-21 12:35:38 // //
  • How do we then find the balance between the two? I regret making a decision which seemed wise at the time as my mind has now been rumenating and regretting that decision which seems irrational and obsessive. Is it the illusion of what I might be missing that has lead me to regret my decision at the time?

  • My impulses I've been over crontroling them!

    Yadira Sanchez // 2013-02-12 20:01:12 // //
  • Impulses can be refined and trained. Reflexive reactions to the world around us are important. If we are mindful of the impulses as they enter our minds and bodies, we can choose how to react. It is important to realize that even the smallest reactions can build habitual momentum that can cause a person to stray from conscious behavior or to embrace conscious behavior. Align with truth and harmony as much as possible in your reactions, and you build momentum of being within truth and harmony. When you are within truth and harmony, you have a strong foundation for understanding the world around you and yourself. This can train your impulsive reactions to be beneficial. Before martial arts training, a person may flinch and cower when presented with seemingly hostile movement, but after training, the person reacts by swiftly adjusting their body mechanics and prepares to counter.
