Deepak Chopra on The Cycle

Written by Abby Borovitz http://tv.msnbc.com

 

Deepak Chopra joined The Cycle to discuss his new book Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being. Deepak, who has authored more than 65 books, co-author’s this one with Rudolph E. Tanzi, Ph.D. The book discusses how you can be happy for the holidays and beyond. The book goes as far into the mind-brain connection as possible and suggests a revolutionary new way for us all to relate to the brain.

 

With the holiday frenzy in full swing, Deepak offer three key pieces of advice: go with the flow, take time for daily reflection, and shift the conversation in your brain.

 

A GOLDEN AGE
FOR THE BRAIN


What do we really know about the human brain? In the 1970s
and 1980s, when the authors gained their training, the honest
answer was “very little.” There was a saying circulating back then:
Studying the brain was like putting a stethoscope on the outside of
the Astrodome to learn the rules of football.
Your brain contains roughly 100 billion nerve cells forming
anywhere from a trillion to perhaps even a quadrillion connections
called synapses. These connections are in a constant, dynamic state
of remodeling in response to the world around you. As a marvel of
nature, this one is minuscule and yet stupendous.
Everyone stands in awe of the brain, which was once dubbed
“the three- pound universe.” And rightly so. Your brain not only
interprets the world, it creates it. Everything you see, hear, touch,
taste, and smell would have none of those qualities without the
brain. Whatever you experience today— your morning coffee, the
love you feel for your family, a brilliant idea at work— has been specifi
cally customized solely for you.

Many cycles will have to be experienced before we will truly arrive at the core junction of the crossroad, because we walk (experience) them all, no matter what we may have planned. As is perfectly normal in our evolution we cannot force it. We are only at the beginning of discovering this new field of all possibilities. Reflecting back I’ve discovered the red thread in my life. But standing at the junction of the very moment, meaning understanding one’s purpose right now right here will be the quantum jump to make. We are on our way and I will praise the day when we collectively arrive there…..
